You can have only 4 partitions on a single HD and only one can be active at a time. What do you need to put on the new partition?

Looks like you already have 4 primary partitions on that drive. The fourth one is probably the hidden 100MB active partition. Check that in Disk Management. If possible, post a picture of Disk Management.

What you will have to do is to first convert one of those primaries into a logical partitions. The most likely candidate for that is probably the C partition - but that we'll have to check on your Disk Management picture. When you post back, we'll tell you how to proceed.

PS: DO NOT CONTINUE when the system tells you that it will convert your partitions into Dynamics - that would bring your system to a total halt.

A picture of Disk Management would help.
