A program, such as Acronis Disk Director will let you partition your HD, a.g.t

There are other programs that will do it, too.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

1) Make sure that you have a backup - this can hose the OS on the hard drive!
2) Disk Management should allow you to allocate the unallocated space into a new partition - then you should be able to format it and set it as Active.
