I have a ASUS X53U laptop, as my HDD crashed i got a new 320GB HDD and the service center guy just made 2 partitions in it and installed Windows 7 ultimate. I just deleted all partitions and then tried to create new partitions, when i created a first 30 GB partition windows itself created a 100mb partition (This was something new for me as I have installed windows 7 from same DVD so many times and this was the first time windows created a 100 mb partition by itself), then i created 2 more partitions of 65GB each, after which when I tried to create 4th partition the something 139GB unallocated space doesn’t give a option to create new partition. Tried deleting and creating the partitions multiple times in different ways but does not help.

My HDD doesn’t have any data and not even a operating system, so wondering how to fix this

    I will suggest to use the Paragon Hard Disk Manager.

    I recommend looking into GParted Live. It's a Linux distribution thats sole purpose is to partition storage devices.

    When you created your partitions (30 GB, 100 MB system partition, and 2 65 GB partitions), you hit the ceiling of 4 primary partitions on the disk. If you want more partitions than that, you need to create an extended partition as your 4th partition which will occupy the remainder of the drive that has not been taken up by the first 3 partitions. Once you have done this, you can put any other partitions you desire into the extended partition. All of this can be done with the native tools in Windows so you don't need to get another tool to do the job although some of them are a bit easier for less experienced people to use.

    Paragon Hard Disk Manager is my prefered choice although its not free.

    There is a 30 day trial.

    I will suggest to use Free EaseUS® Partition Master 9.1.1 Home Edition. It never let me down.
