It may be a silly question but i don't have much knowledge regarding this

My original win7 had only one disk - Local Disk(:C) - I created one new one to it by using Disk Management, Shrink Volume. But I need to create one more. I have about 400 GB on my Local Disk (:C) and which It shows me about 150 GB available for shrink to another partition. But once I create it and want to assign letter and label to it, one error occurs and tell me this:
" You can not create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions"


please let me know what is the solution for it because strongly I need 2 more partitions in addition to Local Disk(:C)
