    Re-installing bootcamp into existing partition
    Yes I did not back up my partition like an idiot before diving into this. A while ago after updating the bootcamp drivers, several programs flipped out and refused to run.
    Instead of searching for an answer to this, I idiotically went into the driver update program and uninstalled the whole thing. This stripped my Windows partition of all but the base bootcamp components. This went unnoticed for a long time before I found performance was degrading so when I tried to update again, the installer refused to run, presumably because it couldn't find the proper files to apply the update to.
    I don't fancy deleting and re-installing the entire partition and am open to any suggestions. Can the bootcamp support programs be applied to the partition through the install disk?

    Cheers.

    If it's only a matter of installing drivers for Windows, the answer is yes. Just pop in your Leopard DVD while Windows is running. But if it involves Windows core components such as system files and the like, the answer is no. You will have to reinstall.

    Regards.
