removing xp from iMac
on Feb 15, 2010 at 7:40:40 pm

I help run the multimedia at our church. Unfortunately our creative directory is still keen on using Windows XP (old habits ; )) and has partitioned the drive and put XP on our main Mac used for data projections. I am keen on removing it (he has it on his laptop).

What is the safest way to do this? And can the 'other' OS cause problems on the Mac (apart from bloating)?

I'm assuming this was done with Boot Camp?

Is the Mac OS 10.5 or higher?

Follow this:

They strongly suggest backing up all your files. Your Mac-half SHOULD be ok, but anytime you mess with hard drives like this you have to be prepared just in case something goes wrong.

EDIT: I found the same advice here, but with screenshots!
