An easy way to do all this is to use Bombich's NetRestore. http://www.bombich.com/software/netrestore.html

10.4: Backup, restore, resize, and convert Boot Camp partitions
Authored by: CPUnk on Jan 05, '07 01:34:36PM

I have tried this hint and it works.

I made a backup of my bootcamp FIRST (!!!!)

Then took all the steps indicated in the original post.

One thing I didn't bother with is going all the way through the windows installation. When I got to the key entry, I just rebooted, by then Bootcamp had made it's multi-boot partition installation and the new partition was formatted.

From there, I deleted the contents (had to unlock files (use "see info" on the files to unlock them)) and made sure that I installed the first 4 files first.

Then it worked.

Variable sized Bootcamp.
