I have created a Windows partition with Bootcamp. Now I would like to get rid of this partition and attach the available space back to the primary Mac OS partition.

I have found various tutorials around the net, but most of them seem to be outdated. I am wondering what would be the correct procedure for Snow Leopard?

Simply open Boot Camp Assistant again and it will ask you if you want to restore the drive to one partition. Therefore deleting the boot camp partition.

That didn't work for me. I deleted the boot camp partition using disk utility and now cannot reclaim the space for my primary Lion partition. – Dan Oct 26 '11 at 0:51
