    I have a boot camp partition with Windows 7 on it.

    I also have parallels 7, linked to the boot camp partition.

    Unfortunately I suspended the boot camp partition with parallels but didnt shut it down, then proceeded to boot from the boot camp partition, now the activation is gone and there are small problems every here and there.

    So I plan on resetting my boot camp partition and doing a fresh install.

    If I do so, will all my data from Steam be deleted, and if I bought a game with steam, will I not be able to get it back?

    You'll be able to re-download all your steam games.

    You are going to re-install versus just re activating?

    Not hard to re-activate windows operating system and/or microsoft office!

    The reactivation isn't the problem... It's the fact that I ran my boot camp partition when I didn't shut it down on Parallels that's the problem... Everything is messed up now and it doesn't run as smoothly as before.
