    I have already installed vista onto my macbook pro (first mac) and decided I dont need as much space as i thought i did for windows. What is the easiest way to resize it? With Bootcamp?

    Thanks

    Try deleting the partition and making a new one. This may or may not work. :o Back up your data.

    yea, i don't think you are going to be able to resize it without destroying the windows install. Maybe you can ghost the partition to dvd or external usb, delete the partition, recreate it with the desired size and try ghosting back to that partition :dunno:

    just delete it and reinstall, it takes like an hour.... drag all your info to your Mac HD in the mean time.
