Default Create a New Partition for Some Unallocated Space - Need Help

Hi, I installed Windows Vista Home Premium on my Dell Inspiron successfully
on a partition (C:, 50GB) and I still have another 50GB unallocated space. I
am wondering how I can create a new partition in Vista to use the allocated
space.

When I tried to use the Installation DVD to create the new partition, I got
the following message: "Windows Cannot be installed to this hard disk space.
The selected disk has the maximum number of partitions of this type."

If anyone can shed some light on this, I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks a lot,

Jake

Thanks , Mike. When I tried with Disk Management, it complained for
insufficient space. Can you advise..?

Open Computer Management from the Administrative Tools in Control Panel and
use the Disk Management item under the Storage node.

Jake, did you click to select the unallocated space?
It may be it was looking at the C: drive.

Does your hard drive have four partitions already? If so, you cannot use Windows built-in disk management tool to create new partition with the unallocated space. The only solution is to use third party partition software like AOMEI Partition Assistant. http://www.disk-partition.com/
