    I currently have Windows Vista 64-bit on a 60GB partition and im starting to run out of HD space. Is there anyway for me to increase my partition without deleting it and reinstalling windows. I bought the OEM system builders version of Vista so i dont think i can request another product key to activate windows. Any advise would help thanks! :p

    No, you will need to re-install.

    There should be no problems with activation though as there will be no hardware changes.

    The OEM copies are not activation limited, if you do it a lot in a short space of time you will be told to ring up MS though. The differenec beetween the OEM and retail is that you are not meant to be able to transfer to a new machine. (Though if you want to argue a lot on the phone that it is the same machine and you had to replace nearly all of it due to failure and you are a good arguer you can work that one out too).
