Windows 7: Creating new partitions in windows 7 installation

Creating new partitions in windows 7 installation

Well I just reinstalled Windows 7 and although all went fairly well I was unable to create the partitions I wanted . When it came to the options on partitions I was presented with 2 partitions, one which I could not increase in size over 101mb and another 931gb partition. I could format the drives, and I tried resising the 101mb one, but there was no option to create new partitions. Maybe Im being really silly and missing something here, but could I get some help?

What I want:
1x 50gb partition for OS (C:\)
1x 930gb (or what ever is left) partition for files (D:\)

So...how could I accomplish this?

Thanks :P

I would add that the 100MB partition shouldn't be touched as that will be the one holding your boot record.

Oh...One thought...:P Could it be that all available space was in use? Like If I changed that 931gb partition into a 50gb partition perhaps then it would allow room for another partition...but how do I select which drive windows installs on?

Yeah, Sorry, Just had to make room for more partitions by decreasing the size of others (derp). Thanks anyway
