Default Resizing Partitions with Camptune? - 03-03-2010, 09:14 PM

Hi, all...

I did a successful dual boot using this method:
Simple way to create Dual Boot : Snow Leopard and Windows 7
Unfortunately, since I'm using a 64gb SSD, I allotted just a tad too little space for the Win7 partition. I want to change both partition sizes, and I found in these forums that I might be able to do it with Camptune.

Here's my problem. Once you download Camptune, you run it and it creates a CD or DVD of the program, which is LINUX-based. The manual says to use the press-and-hold-the-option-key method to boot into the disk. I can't seem to do this once the OSX side of my boot starts. I'm not sure if I'm using the right key on my 10V (I tried all of them), or if my key-holding timing is off, but I need to know how I can boot into Camptune. I also tried F12 during the Dell opening splash screen to boot into the CD drive. No go.

Does anyone have the keys to this castle? Thanks!
