Firstly - I know this has been answered, but I am hoping for a more broken down answer, as I am not quite so technically minded, but I can follow instructions!
So in summary I have tried to install windows with bootcamp. Something failed and I ended up using Disk utility to try and remove the partition created by bootcamp.
Big, silly error I know!
I have followed the threads about backing up then booting to Recovery Mode (Cmd+R) and effectively wiping my SSD then re-installing Yosemite from internet recovery and then restore from my Time Machine back up. (Seems like it will be a late night!)
(The thread I am working off is the question and the answer here.)
However, in the description by @Klanomath, which seems to be a solution there are some blanks in my knowledge as to what exactly to do.... Which command lines do I use as an example.
Here is an abstract of his solution.
And here is the output of my
diskutil cs list:

as well as the output of my

and my Disk Utility GUI:
the output of

To summarize - I'd like to get a thickos guide to achieving the resolution, with the info I have provided.
I would also be interested to know if there is an alternative solution that doesn't require wiping my whole system. IF there are other command lines in terminal that may let me regain control of my hard drive and rejoin them.
I do not have a fusion drive, but I have a 500Gb SSD. You may also see "Nifty Drive" in the CS list, that is just a memory card.
Also my first time on a forum, so hello!
