    I believe this can be done through the bootcamp software, and there probably isn't another easy way to do it, if it even can be done that way. If it can create partitions without destroying all data, then I would assume it can also move them. I don't have an Intel mac, so can't give you step-by-step, but open up boot camp and see if it gives you the option.

    no luck, my only options are to burn the drivers, install window (again) and reset to single boot. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    If you search www.versiontracker.com, you'll find a few apps that can move partitions without destroying data. None of them are free and you'd have to look at the documentation to see if it will work with partitions of different types. They may only be able to move HFS partitions and not FAT or NTFS.
