    Before leopard was released I installed windows on my mbp using the Boot Camp Assistant. I have since reformated the computer and while the windows partition remains, boot camp assistant is gone. A few questions:

    1. Is there any way I can make the windows partition larger? I want to install a few new games on it

    2. If not, how can I delete the windows partition straight up?

    3. Once the windows partition is deleted, how can I reinstall windows without upgrading to leopard? Is there any where I can get boot camp assitant still? I still have a burned CD with the Windows Drivers along with my copy of XP w/ SP2.

    I really don't think so.

    Boot camp assist or disk utility should do that

    Sorry but no. Bootcamp was a beta that long expired. I would recommend looking into virtulaization. I think VM ware allows for disk resizing and can comvert boot camp images.

    To make it larger, delete the current partition and make a new one.

    To make a new one, set your clock back before 12/31/2007 for the beta to work again.

    Open Boot Camp Assistant, use it to restore to a single volume.
