Hi.

So this is a Windows XP problem then and not a Windows 7 one? You can find your disk management by right clicking on My Computer and selecting Manage.

EDIT: After reading the link it doesn't help really. I think you need to create a partition with the unallocated space by right clicking on it, then try to extend it. Your best bet would be to Clean Install Windows 7.
