Unable to create new partition

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 that is a year old and just added 3 additional 1TB drives to the RAID-5 array. After waiting literally days for the array to expand and fully initialize. I was horrified to find that Windows 2008 see's 2 additional blocks of space instead of one, and the last block, which has almost all the space, won't allow me to make a partition at all.

I badly needed to add more space and don't understand why it won't let me. Can someone explain why, and what a better setup would be?

MBR has a limit of 2TB. It can be converted to GPT, but the problem is that all partitions nead to be removed before converting the disk to GPT.

Thank you for the pointers there. That example in the first hyperlink is almost exact to my situation and very applicable. Thanks!
