    Help removing Ubuntu from MacBook Pro 8,2

    Hi all,

    I need some advice on removing Ubuntu from my macbook. I have OS X Mountain Lion, Ubuntu and Windows 7 installed and would like to keep just OS X Mountain Lion and Windows 7. I use rEFIt to boot and would like to remove that as well. I ran partition inspector to show the following:

    *** Report for internal hard disk ***

    Thanks 2F4U!

    I still am having trouble deleting the linux swap partition. My bootcamp and linux swap partitions can't be selected (screenshot 1), and it says that the partition cannot be modified. See screenshot 2. How can I allocate all of the space for Mac OSX? I am thinking about just reinstalling my windows later so I would like the entire partition to be Mac OS X.
