    Hey all, I want to reinstall Tiger on my shiny new MBP, will doing so kill my Windows partition? I think it *shouldn't* but will I still be able to boot to windows afterwards? (After reinstalling Boot Camp?) Or will I have to reinstall Windows all over again? I've already done some tweaking and optimizations in windows and don't really want to reinstall it.

    TIA. (A newbie in Mac Land and loving it.)

    No. Not unless you choose to erase the whole hard drive from the installer.

    You don't need to reinstall Boot Camp if you already have Windows installed. It doesn't do anything beyond partitioning the drive and burning a drivers disc.
