    I need to re-aliquot the 20 gigs I have for windows/boot camp beta to my normal drive, but the boot camp has expired and wont open( I want to do this before I install leopard, I am very low on space). How do I do this?

    have you tried setting your clock back to before it expired?

    I think Disk Utility on the 10.5 DVD can remove the bootcamp partition and expand the OSX partition. It does carry risks though.

    I would install the 10.5, do a Time Machine backup, then restore that backup from the install DVD into a brand new full partition or resize it from 10.5.

    Users of Boot Camp Beta would be on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (not Leopard).

    Installing Leopard would fix the problem as they'd be able to use the final version of Boot Camp.

    Obviously the OP doesn't want to do that yet, so they're stuck (hence the thread).

    It's an issue that effects users if they want to upgrade or not.
