How to create partition for win7 Home basic 64 bit??

Hello,
I just got a new LENOVO ULTRABOOK U410, Windows 7 homebasic 64bit.
500 GB + 24 GB SSD;
It consist of 2 drives,
C drive- Os installed
D drive- drivers and applications installed

Now, i want to make partition of C or D drive but i dont have optical drive,so that to create a recovery disk. Didn't tried for any of the shrink methods to create dynamic drive as its a new 1 and i dont want to mess with it.
So, is there any solution to make recovery first(soft copy) and then create partitions on any drive.. Thnk u.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings:

1. Type Disk Management in Start Search box.
2. Open Disk Mgmt. window and maximize it.
3. Type Snipping Tool in Start Search box.
4. Open Snipping Tool, choose Rectangular Snip, draw a box around full map and all listings.
5, Save Snip, attach using paper clip in Reply Box.

Tell us what is on each partition and exactly what you want to do and we will tell you how to do it.

You do not want Dynamic drive so do not accept if it warns you it is about to convert to Dynamic Disk.

Lenovo laptops come with 4 primary partitions.
I think if you shrink one, you will find yourself suddenly forced into an extended partition the next time you do anything with partitions. Any change in partition tables will likely ruin the usability of the one touch restore to original button. Then you will need to locate and download a rather large engineering dvd just to repair that button and reload the OEM partition to restore its usability. It may look like its empty, but surely isnt. It contains your restore to original image and drivers.

vishUltra,

You should be able to use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to shrink C by what you want to create a logical partition with.
