    I made my partiiton only 5 gigs and now I realize that that was too small so I want to resize it so I dusted off my copy of PQ Partition Magic 8.0 and installed it but when I opened it it says error 117 drive letter cannot be identified. and the program won't open What does that mean

    Thanks

    I got the same thing when I tried to re-partition it.

    They have a tool in there that tells you what the problem is. I don't quite understand it, so I didn't make it very far :p

    Boot Camp docs are very clear on that. You must use BC to restore the entire HDD to Mac OS X .. and then start over with the install.

    I went with 30 GB FAT for WinXP (90 GB for OS X) on my MacBook.
