Windows 7: Only 400MB available to partition when I have 100Gigabytes available

Only 400MB available to partition when I have 100Gigabytes available

I'm trying to dual-boot Windows 7 and 8 together, but when I go to shrink volume of my C:\, it says I only have 400 MB available to partition, obviously not enough to dual-boot. Someone suggested to defrag my hard-drive, I did that but only about 200 MB was gained, still not enough.

If someone could help me with this issue, that would be amazing!

Thanks!
