if you did a complete clean install and started from scratched, it should have deleted the partition.

Yep. Start the boot camp assistant and have it rejoin the 2 partitions.

If it doesn't give you that option, erase the entire drive and reinstall OS X.

(Boot from install disc - hold down the 'C' key and then select disk utility from the installers menu bar. Repartition the drive with only 1 partition and finish the install).
