Yes, it can be done, however, we strongly advise you to make a backup image of your Boot Camp partition first. In order to make the image, we recommend "WinClone".

You can use a flash drive of sufficient size if you don't have a spare external hard drive to copy the image. It of course depends on the size of your Boot Camp partition as to what size drive you will need. Read the WinClone instructions carefully.
