Here's what I did:

  • I wanted to try W8 on my MBP.
  • installed W8 dualboot with bootcamp
  • got fed up with W8 cause it wouldn't work as expected
  • I deleted the Windows partition with the Disk Utility of Mac OS X

All went fine, until I restarted. I got a "bluescreen" telling me that "C:/somefile/etc..." couldn't be found.

So I thought it might be some leftover from Windows, and rebooted, holding the option-Key and choose the MAC-HD to boot from. That worked, and I changed the default boot volume to MAC-HD.

The problem is that sometimes when I wake from sleep, the MBP crashes. Or after installing an update I have to rechoose the default boot volume.

Now I want to remove that last bit of Windows that is still hovering somewhere.

How do I do that?

Some additional information:

$ diskutil list
/dev/disk0
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *500.3 GB   disk0

   2:                  Apple_HFS Macintosh HD            499.4 GB   disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s3

If you use Bootcamp Assistant and select the "Remove Windows 7" option only, this will remove the partition and put your whole system back to normal.

@David: I just started the assistant, but I don't see this screen. It looks like it does not recognize the windows boot partition without the actual windows partition. –  tH0r Jan 4 '13 at 15:00
