    You set disk space for your Windows partition using the bootcamp assistant. You can also use disk utility to resize current partitions on your mac though I am unsure if windows would be able to see the size adjustment without some third party tool to allow you to allocate that disk space.

    The easiest thing to do is install windows in a virtual machine. If you don't want to pay for parallels or vmware you can use virtualbox which is a very good free alternative.

    go to Disk Utility under utilities folder, Click to your hard drive on the left side, choose partition tab. On the right side, You will see 2 partitions, use your mouse to drag up at the lower right corner of the Mac's partition. This will increase the size of your bootcamp partition. Click Ok and the process will take few minutes to finish.

    You might try but i am not sure if it will break the windows partition.

    Yeah, use your mouse to click on the mac's partition.. at the lower right corner, hold your mouse and drag it up. That's mean you increase the windows' partition.

    You might refer to this video for references to see if it works for you.
