I can't get past the error screen after the introduction. Originally, the disk was divided in 3 partitions, the primary one with the data,the second one with the OS X reserved and the third one with bootcamp. So I removed the bootcamp partition, and the error remains, so it's my understanding that the disk has to be in one partition. If I delete the OS partition, will I lose any data?

My screen is something like the attatched.enter image description here

  • Boot Camp won't install to an external drive, nor will Windows boot from one - you need some trickery. twocanoes.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/… – Tetsujin Mar 10 '17 at 18:34
  • @Tetsujin I have an internal hard drive with 2 partitions, one is Macintosh HD the other is OS reserved. The above screen is just a sample, not my actual partitions . – marilena6 Mar 10 '17 at 18:50
  • 'sample' images are only of any use when they demonstrate the actual issue :/ – Tetsujin Mar 10 '17 at 18:53
  • If I click the minus button and remove the OS partition, will the data in that partition deleted? Or joined in the bigger one? That's my basic question. – marilena6 Mar 10 '17 at 19:03
  • If you remove any partition everything on it will be deleted, yes. – Tetsujin Mar 10 '17 at 19:32
