error message when try to partition HD

I just took my new HPE-110f with 1Tb HD ot f the box and want to partiton the HD before I do anything else. So I went to Windows7 Disk Management to do this. Using the elevated command prompt I got as far as selecting disk 0 as this is what I want to partition (931Gb free 0 Gb), then entered create partition primary and rec'd the following: "Virtual Disk Service Error: There is not enough usable space for this operation."
I do not understand this. I can understand things pretty well; I consider myself an above average user.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you. I went through all the tutorial info. Had to take what I consider a back door approach and shrink the drive to then establish other volumes. As an info point this is an HPE-110f.
