Hi hassaanid2011

Try Partition Wizard (free) you will be able to make a partition and assign a drive letter

Free Partition Magic alternative. Free Partition Manager Software for Windows 7/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.

Post a snapshot of Disk Management please. See here for info: How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista - Vista Forums(says it's for Vista but also works with Win 7)

To open Disk Management, press Winkkey+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO.

If you have Windows 7 and XP installed you may want to consider a larger HDD.
