Can't create a second volume on 3 GG hard drive

I can't create a second volume on 3 GG hard drive (see the attached screenshot).

This 3 GB hard drive already has a primary partition of 2 GB.

What do I need to do to be able to create a second 1 GB partition within the second volume?

Is this something that can be done using Server 2008 R2 or do we need to wait until Windows 8 and the next version of Windows server are released in order to be able to use the full hard drive capacity of a 3 GB hard drive?

Ah you mean 3TB Drives!! I was wondering why you couldnt use a 3GB drive, or even why you would want to :P

@leew: if you had looked at the screenshot provided you would have noticed that it was RAW and not formatted, ergo there was no information to lose

If I could have looked at the screen shot I would have - I was on my phone.
But EVEN THEN, you should still post that warning - other people read this question and maybe they aren't using a raw disk.  Anyone blindly following your directions could lose data.  They SHOULDN'T be blindly following ANYONE's directions, but it happens too often that they do.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
