To delete the partition all you do is go into the Boot Camp Assistant and choose "restore single partition". Simple as that.

Hi there,

I just successfully install Window XP but due to some error during my many retry... now I have an 15GB partition on OSX HD (I install XP on the second bay HD). Could someone help, how to delete that partition without affecting OSX? I tried the disk utility and also iPartition... doesn't work.

I don't want to reinstall OSX. If I really have to, will my window XP in second HD be safe? Or I'll have to install bootcamp and window again too?

Many thanks
QUOTE Thanks
