    I decided to delete the windows partition i have on my new mbp bc when installing parallels originally screwed up windows. i removed it from parallels program and so now im re partitioning the hd to go back to pure mac. its been going for 2 hours now. it just says "Status: Partitioning disk..." and the status bar is just doing an impression of a barber shop scroll. seriously how long does this take? i can still access the windows partition

    I don't think it should take that long.
