    I've already created and installed Windows 7 in the Bootcamp partition. I don't believe I created enough space, can I extend this partition somehow?

    Ideas?

    So I guess it's not as easy as running Bootcamp assistant and doing it from there or Disk Utility?

    Dam, I guess I'll delete the Bootcamp partition and start over.

    Do you know if you can boot to an "external" bootcamp Windows 7 partition?

    Maybe I'll just delete the Bootcamp partition and load windows 7 on an external drive usb drive.

    Apple's documentation expressly says this won't work. It's for internal disks only. The limitation is the Apple CSM-BIOS implementation to support Windows doesn't support doesn't support USB booting.

    Some newer hardware can purportedly boot from SDXC .
