Yes, you can partition during install. There are a few ways, try this:

Partition the Hard Drive in a Windows 7 Install

I recommend 100GB for System Reserved + System partition, the rest for Data partition.

New hard drives are not formatted from the factory.

You won't need to format the Windows partition. It will be done automatically during the Windows installation.

You will need to format any other partitions you may have, but you can do that with Windows Disk Management after you install Windows to C.
