    A Boot Camp partition is a special type of partition and is different than a regular one. Do not try to use Disk Utility to do delete it. Instead, use Boot Camp Assistant to do it.

    …and be sure to create a full backup of your non-Boot Camp partitions before you begin. Nothing *should* go wrong, but repartitioning a “live” drive is the most risky thing you can do to your data on purpose.
