I installed windows XP home edition using bootcamp on my macbook pro. I am trying to reformat my entire mac; however, when I first tried to remove the windows partition on my mac using bootcamp assistant, it failed. I get the following error message:
YOUR STARTUP DISK CANNOT BE PARTITIONED OR RESTORED TO A SINGLE PARTITION. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format the disk as a single Mac OS Extended Journaled volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.
When I went into the Disk Utility progra, it won't let me format the main hard drive or the windows partition. When I loaded the Mac Install disk, I cannot make any modifications/re-install mac os to the main hard drive from the install program... just the window partition. The windows partition is only 6gb and so even IF i wanted to install on the windows partition, the Mac installer said I need at least 9 GB free.
Please help - I am stuck. Thank you!!

When you load up the mac install disc did you restart and hold the C key upon hearing the "Chime".
