    hey guys,

    i installed vista with bootcamp on my macbook pro. however, now i plan to increase the partition size of windows, so i have to delete the current vista partition right? If i want to reinstall vista, am i able to reuse the vista installation dvd? i mean will windows allow me to install more than once? fyi, the installation dvd i have is the windows vista home basic OEM version.

    Hi, it shouldn't be a problem. If you have to call up Microsoft. just explain the situation.

    I'm pretty sure you don't need to call Microsoft. Just re-type your CD Key and it should work. And yes you do need to delete the full partition and then re-partition the HD, but that shouldn't be a problem.
