It may be a silly question but I don't have much knowledge regarding this

My original windows7 had only one disk - Local Disk(C:) - I created one new one to it by using Disk Management, Shrink Volume. But I need to create one more. I have about 400 GB on my Local Disk (C:) and which It shows me about 150 GB available for shrink to another partition. But once I create it and want to assign letter and label to it, an error occurs and tell me this: " You can not create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions"

Please let me know what is the solution for it because I strongly need 2 more partitions in addition to Local Disk(C:).

The error message suggests that there are already four partitions. Could you post a screenshot of Disk Management? It's C:, by the way. – Dennis Mar 17 '13 at 12:50
@Dennis - Yeah, if there is the 100mb, C:, a data partition (D:) and the user created partition than that is your 4 partitions. – Carl B Mar 17 '13 at 13:50
