    Bootcamp Partition Questions
    Need to install Windows for work related tasks. I will use Bootcamp to partition my iMAC's HD. I just bought Win7 Home Premium. I've watched several YouTube video's on how to do the partition and install seems so easy a Caveman could do it. But I still have some questions:

    1. Should I discover down the road I need to increase the size of the partition, can I go back and re-size the partition?

    2. Should I ever want to fully uninstall Win7 can I delete or resize the partition like it was never there?

    Thanks

    Yes. Paragon makes a product called "CampTune", that makes this relatively simple. Otherwise, it will require some backing up with a program like WinClone and rebuilding the partition.

    Yep. Boot Camp Assistant will revert it back to a single partition with ease.

    But before you go through this, I would strongly recommend you look at installing Windows via a virtualization product like VMWare Fusion, Parallels Desktop or VirtualBox (each has their pros and cons). But it makes it far more flexible and you don't have to reboot.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
