Hmmmm not sure if i should follow the screen shot and type in 1024 for the size of the new simple volume size? and should this be labeled as drive d: like it was the recovery drive or can i pick any letter? Volume label i could change to any name or should i leave it as volume label is there any suggest names?

Give it the Label "Data Storage" and accept to use all the size, don't enter an amount.

I ask because before i started the partition part, i was going to start the install using the upgrade feature and it didn't ask at the beginning where to install windows, i cancelled the install right away when i realized i didn't do the partition. did it not ask because i didn't create the partition therefore there was no other partition to choose from?

No you are to select the "Upgrade" option and it should auto-select that partition, if it does not select the same "Windows 7" partition you did the first install to; that's how you went bo-bo before, when you were trying to upgrade the Vista you selected to install to the wrong partition.
