I'm a very, very unskilled Mactel User who's looking to remove Ubuntu and restore the free space in my Mac HD. I'm pretty sure I wiped out the LInux partition by accident using Apple's Disk Utility, seeing as though Grub won't boot Linux anymore.

I just want to restore my disk space and everything to as it was before I decided to put Linux on it.

Any help would be much obliged.

If you have the Ubuntu Live CD, get on that and use GParted. (System > Preferences/Admin > Partition Editor) I wrote prefences/admin because I'm not sure under which one it is. And that will open GParted, which is pretty easy to use.

That sounds pretty easy, but sadly I don't have a Live CD with me. Is there a way to find the disk image online? Or possibly a way that doesn't require the cd?

Obviously, if it's the easiest method, I'll try my hardest to procure one.

Thanks for the reply, btw.
