Why can’t I create extra partition with Paragon Partition Manager Pro?

I am trying to create a new partition using Paragon Partition Manager Pro. The reason for doing this is that I want to make it possible to triple boot Windows (Win 7, Vista and XP). However, the effort to create a new partition using Paragon Partition Manager Pro is not working. Instead, I receive the following message: “A new partition cannot be created on this hard disk. Most probably, all primary slots are occupied and there is no extended partition”. The machine is a Hitachi  HDS72150CLA362, 500GB with an Asus motherboard with Intel Core i3 processor, 2.93 GHz processor speed, 2 cores and 1 processor and I believe that there is enough provision for another Partition. Can someone please help explain why it is impossible to create an extra partition using Paragon Partition Manager Pro?

For you to be able to create a partition from on a hard disk you need to have a considerable amount of space on it that will accommodate the files on the disk after you create the partition and also have enough space to enable the new partition to be created. And therefore if you have a lot of files on the disk that you want to create a partition on, then you will need to transfer those files to create space.

But since you need to create a triple boot, I will suggest that you install all the three operating systems on the same partition, and that is the partition that has the operating system on your computer such that when the computer starts, you will just need to choose which OS to boot from.
