If you are still with this then I want to suggest you to use your windows7 DVD to create and extend the new partition to your desired value.

Re: Extend the partition size?


1. If you have not already, you will first need to delete the partition or volume that you want to extend into to make it unallocated space.

2. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click on the Administrative Tools icon. then close the Control Panel window.

3. Click on Computer Management in Administrative Tools, then close the Administrative Tools window.

4. In the left pane under Storage, click on Disk Management.

5. In the middle pane, right click on the partition or volume to the left of the unallocated space that you want to extend into and click on Extend Volume.
NOTE: If the partition that you want to extend is to the right of the unallocated space, then you will need to use METHOD TWO below to extend it instead.

6. Click on the Next button.

7. Type in how many MB (1 GB = 1024 MB) you want to use from the unallocated space to extend the selected partition (step 5) into, then click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: If you want to use all of the unallocated space to extend into, then type in the maximum available space shown for the unallocated space.

8. Click on the Finish button.

9. The partition or volume has now been extended into the assigned unallocted space (step 7).

10. Close the Computer Management window.

Use partition magic or similar program for that purpose.

Re: Extend the partition size?


1. Open the Disk Management console by typing diskmgmt.msc at an elevated command prompt.
2. In Disk Management’s Graphical view, right-click an unallocated or free area, and then click New Simple Volume.
3. Click Next.
4. Size the partition in megabytes using the Simple Volume Size field and then click Next.
5. On the Assign Drive Letter Or Path page, specify whether you want to assign a drive letter or path and then click Next.
6. Use the Format Partition page to determine whether and how the volume should be formatted.
7. Click Next, confirm your options, and then click Finish.
