I'd boot from Partition Wizard before I shrunk the C drive. You can do the shrinking in Partition Wizard.

You MIGHT be able to shrink enough in Disk Management and maybe not. Partition Wizard offers more control.

U can shrink ur disk first with windows disk managment utility, and den use the unallocated space to create further partitions.
But if u want that ur unallocated space should b according to u nt windows den u can use partition wizard directly.
Follow those steps using partition wizard sftw:
1)convert ur whole partition to logical first
2)shrink the amount u want.
3)then create further partitions from this unallocated space.
