Win 7: need help shrinking C drive, expanding new G drive

I just got a new laptop with a 320 GB hard drive. I did an upgrade to Win 7 64-bit Ultimate and have set up my wireless connection - did not move any file, did nothing else. So then I tried to shrink my C drive from 279 GB and Win 7 would only let me shrink it down to about 146GB even though there is only about 35 GB of used space which left me about 132 GB for a new G drive. I was hoping to end up with the C drive being around 80 GB and the new G drive around 200 GB. I did a defrag on the C drive (even though is said there was only 1% fragmented) but that did not change the limitation on shrinking the C drive.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can shrink C more so the new G drive can be larger? Thanks

Any particular reason why you want two separate partitions, (C: and G:)?
