    Hi

    I am currently running Windows 7 via Bootcamp Assistant on my iMac 2011 Lion. I need to enlarge the Windows partition to 100gb from 50gb, and I would love to go the easy route and simply erase the data on the Windows partition and re-install step by step. However if I delete that partition, am I going to be able to reinstall Windows 7 with the same OEM product key? Or will I be forced to purchase another Windows 7 product key?

    Any advice is appreciated! :)

    What kind of product key is it? Is it just one that you've got from a retail version of Windows or have you actually got an OEM copy of Windows 7?

    No, the activation process should sort out that it's the same hardware. If not, worst case you have to call support and get it reset.
