You can repartition your harddrive from within Windows 7 using the Shrink feature. The MS kb article is at: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Can-I-repartition-my-hard-disk

  1. Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management
  2. Click Disk Management (it's under Storage)
  3. Right-click the volume and then click Shrink Volume
  4. Follow the Wizard
