Simple volume is probably the best option here, and from there it will take you to sizing. Choose what sizes you want and away you go.

Out of curiosity, why so many partitions?

It was formatted into a different file system, RAW, rather than NTFS. I would just reformat it into NTFS and see if that works.

Looking at your partitioning, Windows 7 on a 15gb partition is not good.
Why do you want so many partitions?
