    I recently tried using winclone to make my bootcamp partition bigger. Unfortunately the program will not allow me to restore the image to the drive as the partition is FAT32. I attend college out of state and left my windows install disk at home. Is there any way to convert from FAT32 to NTFS without installing windows?

    Is the partition blank? Or do you want to actually do a live conversion from FAT32 -> NTFS?

    If its blank, you can reformat the partition from the command prompt in the Windows PE environment.

    Send me a PM and I'll give you a link to a Windows PE 3.1 ISO.

    EDIT: Better yet here's some Windows 7 ISO's, just burn one of them.

    If any mod complains, the links are from here - and are perfectly legal as far as I know
