Making new HDD partition for Windows 7?

Now, I actually have the exact same OEM disk of Windows 7 Home Premium installed. I have a sister that seems to think she owns my laptop. I have considered splitting my HDD partition into 2 so that I can have my own installation and part of the drive. The problem is that if I screw something up, my sister will have a cow (it's the only place where she stores her iTunes, etc. and she's stubborn to use anything else, she wouldn't even accept it on backup). Can I also have 2 of the same OEM copies on each partition? If not, I'm Out of luck.

You need 2 seperate keys for it to be legal.

A simpler solution may be to make her her own account and you yours and password both of them.
Another thought is get a new sister.

Have her get her own PC or a cheap tablet. They sell for $70 and up. This is a cute one for a girl: http://www.priceangels.com/Q88-4GB-A...--s867389.html

New user account without Admin privileges. Better yet save up and get a 2nd hand laptop. She may be able to even use it for homework
By the time you add monitor, keyboard/mouse & speakers to the refurbished HP your looking at ~$250.
