    The title says it all but is there a way to do this? is it as simple as just reinstalling on the partition?

    Yep... don't touch the Windows partition and you'll be fine.

    You'd have to put the files back in their proper places after you do a clean install.

    Time Machine and then migration from the backup. Basically you'd need an external HDD.

    For iPhoto, simply copy your library onto an external disk. After reinstall put your library back in your Pictures folder, Opt-click Itunes and select library again. Simple as that.
