Okay, i reduced my Vista partition by 30 gbs now i have 30 gbs of unallocated space and i can't figure out how to add it to the windows 7 partition using partition wizard.

OK you should be able to move the rightmost partition to the left and then extend that partition to use the free space.

To be sure if you want to post a screenshot of the current layout of the partitions, I can just confirm the steps

Ok

You should be able to now right click on the vista partition and select Move/ resize

You should now be able to either drag the partition to the left or set the start cluster to the lowest available number to move the partition into the empty space.

After you commit this you can do the same with the Windows 7 partition

This will give you (Left to right) the vista partition then the Windows 7 partition and an area of unallocated space.

After this is done you can then select the Windows 7 partition and extend this into the unallocated space.

It is possible to do all these above changes and then commit the lot at once but I would advise that you do each phase and check that all is well before proceeding to the next

You will probably get a message from PW about being unbootable after moving the system /boot partition.

That is normal - you can sort that out afterwards.
