Windows 2008 Hyper V server disk management

Hi,

I have server with 8 hard disk. on which i have first two hard disk configured raid 1 and installed windows 2008 Hyper V server with sp1.

Now i am able to access server using remote desktop connection and Hyper V manager on my windows 7 PC. I have remaining 6 HDD configured as raid 5. Unfortunately  I am not able to create second partition on the Hyper V server.

Please help me on the same. I want to create second partition on the server and placed all my virtual box on the second partition.

You could use diskpart? or if you prefer a GUI, download and boot from cdrom and use GParted Live CDROM
