    If you are using the automatic wizard, try using the manual option.

    I might be wrong,but I wasnt aware that you could create a new partition from within Windows, I thought you had to do this from pre-installation of Windows + Compaq Presario is an OEM Computer,and resizing the primary partition may not work. This is only from my own experience of creating a seperate partition on my own computer, for data storage only, I could not create a partition from within windows, I had to reformat and create a extended partition with the size of my choice.
