    all of the sudden it is only 100GB.  Where did the other 125GB go?  Also, I can't boot to the drive by holding the option key since the drive isn't listed.  What am I doing wrong?

    I'm sorry, when you said the partition was only 100G and you could not boot to it with the option key I assumed you were describing the situation accurately, I will not do that any longer, carry on.

    Please only respond to this thread if you have appropriate reading skills and something constructive to add.

    I think the replys to your original post have been more than constructive. But a reply like the one above is likely to get you no replys at all now.

     

    If you knew how to fix the problem why did you start the thread in the first place? Felt like arguing?

    The easiest way to achieve what you want to do is probably to make a backup of the Windows partition via the built-in Windows backup utility (to a USB drive or whatever), then delete the whole bootcamp drive, reinstall a basic Windows 7 from DVD and then do a restore of the Windows backup from the USB drive to the now larger partition.

     

    What you described will either result in a Windows installation which cannot boot or which has the wrong size.
