The best way is (as the lappy is brand new , and so having a little personal data I guess) to do it from the beginning , if you have windows 7 DVD to install windows 7 .

Boot from partition wizard boot CD , and make a primary C partition, and a logical D partition . Now install windows in C (the System Reserved partition will be automatically created during installation ) . After installing windows , all the other programs and having all the needful customizations done , Back C and System Reserved up (preferably in DVDs , as there is only one HDD).

But if you dont have Win 7 DVD , you are to shrink your HDD to create free space for a new partition . I posted the link of grtting the Partition Wizard Bootable CD in previous page . Use it , follow the tutorial Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD ; specially the OPTION ONE : Shrink / Create a (fourth) Primary Partition .
