Do you already have Win 7 installed or the disk is blank?

If you're starting on a clean disk, you can make the partitions on the fist install, just go to advanced, delete ALL partitions -create new partition and choose the size of the partition. The remaining space will be un formatted (raw) and you will use the space for the second and third install.
