When I tried to create a new partition using Boot Camp it suddenly crashed and my computer restarted. Apparently the partition was created because the 50GB I specified during creation are gone from my HDD but the partition never got registered. How can I remove the partition and begin from scratch?

  • Does the 50GB partition show up in Disk Utility or in Boot Camp Assistant? – Justwes Feb 27 '11 at 15:14
  • @Justwes I managed to repair it with Disk Utility, but the partition hangs in the middle of the partition when executed form the Boot Camp Assistant. – Zolomon Feb 27 '11 at 17:25

One option is to boot from your Mac OS X Install CD and edit the partitions using the Disk Utility (found in the menu). This can be very handy for removing partitions that just won't die.

  • Now I just need to figure out how I can create a partition without Mac OS X crashing on me. :( – Zolomon Feb 27 '11 at 20:16
