    I setup a 40gb partition for window's vista. Since vista is such a hog, I only had about 15gb left. Well, I used all but 2 gb on space for games and MsOffice. So I need to give more space to the partition. My specs are as follows: 160gb hard drive. 2GHz intel core 2 duo. 2gb 1067 MHz DDR3. My startup disk is Macintosh HD. Please give me a detailed set of instructions or the website you may have gotten it from.:eek:

    The easiest way is to backup the windows partition and start over with a bigger partition

    Take a look at C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and see how big the folder is. This is where Windows store update files, and you can delete the contents of the folder to free up some space. It gave me back nearly 6gb. Be aware this will keep you from uninstalling any updates though.
