really, for the sake of stability and so forth, your best bet is backing up everything you have on your hard drive at the moment with superduper (great free program) onto an external HDD or second volume within the mac, formatting the whole shebang and repartitioning the drive and starting again

If this doesn't work feel free to tell me off xD

your first "blurb" is untrue... Bootcamp assistant partitions your hard drive without reformatting. Disk Utility also does this as well..
