re-allocate drive space using a Gparted live cd, simple shrink your HFS+ partition and expand your NTFS partition... and to boot to a live cd, insert the cd into the drive, reboot and hold down alt when booting, click on the cd icon that says windows and wait for the Gparted to boot

Just a side note to this: you will have to re-activate your NTFS Partition via Diskpart in CMD from a windows installation or recovery CD/DVD after you use Gparted. If you don't Windows wont show up in your boot menu after the move/grow...yes speaking from experience. :)
