How to create partitions in windows 7 after set up is complete?
To repartition your hard disk without losing existing data, you will need a partition manager. There is a multitude of partition managers that can do it without costing you anything. Here are some freeware partition managers that you can download:
1. GParted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/)
2. Minitool Partition Wizard Home Edition (http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html)
3. EASEUS Partition Master (Home Edition) (http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm)
4. Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition (http://www.paragon-software.com/home/pm-express/download.html)
With partition managers you can create, delete, move, and resize partitions. You don't need to delete the contents of your hard drive in order to do it.
As with any software that manipulates data, be sure to make a backup of your system before making any changes to your partitions.
