Mine doesn't let me continue to remove stuff. it says: "The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows." I'm stuck...

The problem with this method are when you restart your Macbook, it will not load your default Mac OS X, but prompt an black screen error message : "No bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key". Any bright ideas to resolve this problem, guy out there if any???

When I try to launch it it says "The application “Boot Camp Assistant” can’t be opened". I don't know how to proceed. Any suggestions and or links recommendations on a expert to seek?-Megan
