I am getting ready to reformat my Bootcamp partition and installed Windows 7 Ultimate over Windows 7 Professional.

The thing is, down the line I probably need to reformat and reinstall OS X.

Can I reformat/reinstall OS X and not loose my bootcamp partition/Windows install?

Is there a reason you're reformatting to upgrade from Win 7 Pro to Win 7 Ultimate instead of using the builtin upgrade? – Paul Whitehurst Oct 14 '10 at 15:59

Yes. They're on separate partitions so you can upgrade them independently just fine.

Yes, there is no trouble doing that at all. Just be sure to reformat and reinstall each respective OS to the correct partition.
