06-22-2007, 01:36 AM #1Problems deleting unused Boot Camp partition
I'm running OS X 10.4.10 on a 2Ghz, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, MacBook.
I've installed Boot Camp 1.3 and Installed Vista with a 15GB partition. I need more than 15GB for the Vista partition so I ran the Boot Camp Assistant in OS X and supposedly formated the MacBook back to a single partition.
But an "Untitled" HD Icon pops up on my OS X Desktop. Disk Utility won't allow me to select it to Erase. And it's still 15GB in size. Not deleted at all.
1. Is there a way for me to delete it completely?
2. Is there a way for me to increase the amount of memory used by the Vista partition?
I ran the Boot Camp Installer and Assistant again, but I didn't get that option to set the Disk size of the Windows partition that I did when first installing Boot Camp and Windows.

did you restart after restoring to a Single partition?
no, there is no way for you to resize it once done. its obviously still paritioned as two drives, thats why BC is not giving the you the partition option2.4ghz Unibody | Hitachi 320GB 7200 | 256MB 9600gt

Update: Solved my problem. Booted Installer from Vista DVD and erased contents of Windows Partition and Quit the installation process. Booted in OS X and Ran Boot Camp Assistant and Reverted back to a Single Partition. After Restart the partition was fully gone and the 15GB back on my OS X Drive.
