Dear colleagues,

I ran into a strange problem. I use Windows on Mac through Boot Camp. I have to go back to a windows image that I created earlier. Boot camp doesn't succeed to delete a 0.0 B Windows Partition and is not able to "recreate unique volume".


The command diskutil list shows the following:



/dev/disk0
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *149.1 Gi disk0
1: Microsoft Basic Data 0.0 B disk0s3
2: EFI 200.0 Mi disk0s1
3: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 148.7 Gi disk0s2


The culprit is here:

1: Microsoft Basic Data 0.0 B disk0s3

Does anyone know the terminal sytax in diskutil to erase oder resize disks03?



Or is there another way to get rid of it?


Thanks in advance

Noe

Hello,

I erased the whole partition with "diskutill erasedisk JHFS+ MacIntosh disk0". Then I reinstalled OSX and finally Windows (external keyboard unplugged).

Regards

Noe
