You have three options that I can think of.

Get Partition Magic and boot off the CD. Start up Partition Magic. Delete the type "AF" partition.

or

Get and install Macdrive on Windows. Erase the Mac partition.

or

Boot of the OSx86 installer CD. Load disk utility. Format Mac partition to MS-DOS filesystem.

I hope that helps

Why would you want to take such a wonderful thing off your machine?

THanks for helping me. I will try those options :censored2:

@ Jeezoflip. I know it's lovely and wonderful but somehow I don't like it's features because I'm not that use to it and that it has no support drivers for my intel machine. If you can provide me with drivers for my intel hp pavillion a1140n I would glady leave it on.

PS: My intension was just to test this OS out. I really love it's graphics and stuff but in someway I don't like it's features; such as the shortcut keys.

I mean, which drivers can't it find. Sound? Graphics card? Ethernet?

The sound and the video driver. I cannot hear sound and I cannot change my screen resolution. I have a realtek sound card and an Intel chip & Nvidia graphic card. But i'm using the Nvidia.
