    Expanding Windows Bootcamp Partition
    Hey, I'm trying to figure out a way of expanding my Windows Partition that was created through bootcamp. Normally I would just erase the partition and re-install but the problem is I only have an update disc not a full install.

    Is there any possible way for me to expand my partition without having to repartition+install all over again?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Maybe possible?
    I havent tried this, but i found

    "Boot into Mac OS X.
    Launch Disk Utility. Make a new disk image of the "NO NAME" volume and save it (preferably) to an external hard drive.
    Launch Boot Camp Assistant. Select "Restore the startup disk to a single volume."
    Make a new larger Windows partition. Reinstall Windows and the Mac drivers.
    Boot Mac OS X.
    Launch Disk Utility and restore from the saved disk image to the new "NO NAME" partition.
    Boot Windows. Find and delete all the "Desktop" files that Mac OS X left behind."

    As you probably know by now, WinClone has been discontinued. However, it should still work and I believe their forum is still up if you need help.

    One other remedy is to use "CampTune" ($19.95) from Paragon software. No reinstalling of Windows is required.
