I tried to install Windows 8 using the bootcamp assistant, but when I got to this screen,
The BOOTCAMP partition created by bootcamp wouldn't accept the windows install. Meaning, I reformatted it, and normally the little sun button "New" would then allow me to proceed with the Windows install.
I thought it was very weird so I instead deleted the partition, which turned into a 47.3Gb of Unallocated Space.
I tried formatting said unallocated space which created a bunch more partitions, but ultimately the same problem persisted: Can't install Windows.
In OSX, the Disk Utility wouldn't let me actually delete or remove the partitions so I went back to the Windows install menu and turned all the undesirables into unallocated space.
Here's what my Disk Utility looks like now:
As you can see there's some purple stuff at the top and some dark-grey stuff at the bottom, which I imagine represents free space?
Finally, here's a
diskutil list readout:
/dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *121.3 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_CoreStorage 121.0 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Boot OS X 134.2 MB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_CoreStorage 948.5 GB disk1s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk1s3 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD *1.1 TB disk2 Logical Volume on disk0s2, disk1s2 A952E93D-0902-4BEC-B4D2-93A8BB1CDDD0 Unencrypted Fusion Drive /dev/disk3 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *16.0 GB disk3 1: DOS_FAT_32 WININSTALL 16.0 GB disk3s1
How can I reset everything to the way it was so I can try bootcamp again?
More specifically, how do I add unallocated space to my primary OSX partition?
Thanks in advance.
