    So I bought and installed Office and a boot camp of Windows.

    Is there anything I can do? I do not want to have to buy them both again.


    Thanks!

    Was it a retail or OEM copy of Windows?

    If it is retail, simply uninstall it on your current setup and reinstall it on whatever you wish.

    If it is an OEM copy, it is against the EULA to do this but technically it will work (not that I would condone it).

    I can understand uninstalling office, but how do I uninstall windows besides deleting the partition?

    I appreciate the help!

    Just delete the partition, if you got an serial number with windows, you'll need that to reinstall.
