Unallocated disk space error, Can not partition volume space

hello,
I recently formated my desktop, I have everything saved on the (F) partition, and i formatted the primary partition (C) which leaves me with huge chunk of Unallocated space that is unable to use. Everytime i try to create a new partition, it says that space is not enough ( i even tried creating the min amount of space 8mb) when the space available is almost 500 Gigs.
I tried researching the web but no help... please help me im running out of disk space and i dont want to delete anything
