I have a macbook pro I want to upgrade from snow leapord to mountian lion but I want to remove the bootcamp partition and remove windows xp. How do I remove the windows partition or windows xp completly from the hard drive without losing my mac data?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Open Boot Camp and choose to "Install or Remove a Windows partition, you'll be removing. Do not use Disk Utility, you'll regret it.

    Related problem. I upgraded my Tiger partition to 10.6.8. Boot Camp was eliminated in the process. When I choose Boot Camp assistant from finder it checks and reports that the 'software is not available' (core 2 duo 3,1).


    I understand that DU is not to be used but I can't figure out how to eliminate the old Win XP if I can't get bootcamp installed.


    Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
