You already have 4 Partitions. You have to remove one, then create an Extended Partition and then create Logical Partitions.

I personally would just start over, remove everything from the drive including that recovery partition in the front. It is also better to have the booting partitions (the 100 MB partition) at the front.

There is very little in your D partition. I would back this up, delete the partition and make that an extended partition. Then you can add more partitions. Use this program: BEST FREE Partition Manager Software for Windows supports all 32-bit & 64 bit Windows No-server OS.
