I have a question about Merging partitions, I have checked from this forum but could not get what I want.

Few months ago I have splitted by disk into two by using Bootcamp and now I decided to delete Windows.

I have erased disk in which was installed Windows, and would like to Merge Partitions.

Is there a any way for doing this?

    Use Boot Camp Assistant to remove the volume you created with it.

    This is from the BootCamp guide.


    Removing Windows from Your Computer


    How you remove Windows from your computer depends on whether you installed Windows on a single-volume disk or on a second disk partition.


    If you installed Windows on a second disk partition: Using Boot Camp Assistant as described below, remove Windows by deleting the Windows partition and restoring the disk to a single-partition Mac OS X volume.

    If your computer has multiple disks and you installed Windows on a disk that has only one partition: Start up in Mac OS X and use Disk Utility, in /Applications/Utilities, to erase the disk and reformat it as a Mac OS X volume.


    To delete Windows and the Windows partition:

    1 Start up in Mac OS X.

    2 Quit all open applications and log out any other users on your computer.

    3 Open Boot Camp Assistant.

    4 Select “Create or remove a Windows partition” and click Continue.

    5 Do one of the following:

    •      If your computer has a single internal disk, click Restore.
    •      If your computer has multiple internal disks, select the disk with Windows on it, and then select “Restore to a single Mac OS partition” and click Continue.

    Thank you very much.

    I missed one thing; when I opened Bootcamp assistant I met with two options; a) download content for Windows b) use Mac OSX disk and both of options I met with another problem; your disk is formatted with Mac journaled.

    So, I formatted my partition with Windows format and Bootcamp let me do it

    Thank you very much for your response.
