Hello, all.


I'm just going to cut straight to the point. I have one internal HDD that is between 200-300GB in capacity and an external HDD that is 1TB (1000GB) in capacity. I understand that you can only boot windows off of the primary volume (my internal HDD). I'm running OS X Mountain Lion off of my external; OS X leopard off of my internal; Windows 7 SP1 64 bit off of my internal. While setting up windows 7 in boot camp on leopard, I allocated 100GB to Windows; however, I now only have 25GB. Basically, I'd like to partition more memory. However, OS X will not let me do this. Is there ANY way to get around this?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
