First step is to make F or G a little smaller... you decide which one. Actually it doens't matter which one.
Make it 200MB smaller.
Partition or Volume - Shrink

second step is make a new partition (200MB) in the unallocated space. Be sure it's primary and NTFS. And assign a drive letter
Partition or Volume - Create New

Now mark that partition as ACTIVE (so it is the boot partition if you try to boot from external disk)
Partition - Mark as Active

Now post screenshot of dsik management and post

Also:
The production of the WinPE recovery CD (which is highly recommended) may take up to 3 hours because Macrium needs to download the 1.7GB WAIK (Windows Application Installation Kit). For your convenience I have uploaded a ready made .iso of the WinPE recovery disc. That can be downloaded in appr. 8 minutes which clearly beats the WAIK download. Once you downloaded and unzipped the folder, you can burn it directly to a CD with e.g. ImgBurn.

Here is the link to my Skydrive site.

I draw your attention to the fact that this WinPE CD can also be used to make images. That may be convenient in case you do not want to install Macrium on your PC.

Don't burn it just download it. Do you see an ISO in it?
