Hi, can any one help me to re-format my Mac Book Pro note book?  I partitioned 1/3 of my HDD and installed VMware Fusion to run Windows XP.  Now, my Windows XP has problems and I have to re-format the partitioned HDD where Windows XP is installed.  I don't want to reformat the whole HDD only the partitioned section and re-install Windows XP.  Any ideas?...Thanks

    Open the Disk Utility, click on that partition in the sidebar, and erase it normally.

    If you did the partitioning as part of a BootCamp installation, you need to use the BootCamp Assistant to delete the partition and return the space to the main OS X volume.
