    In the disk manager tool, I tried to partition (create/name) a new partition out of free, unallocated space. but the virtual disk service blows up and the partition is "created" but it gains no letter drive and is not usable.

    i tried rebooting and trying it again, no luck. same thing happens every time.

    Works fine for me both on X32 and X64.

    Try and create some totally empty space using a Windows install disk (say XP / VISTA) - don't wipe your OS of course.
    Boot again into W7 and create new partition / new logical volume. You CAN set it as Primary if you want. Ensure also you only have 1 active partition.
    Cheers

    I'll give that a shot. I'm running Win7 x64 and Virtual Disk service crashes every time I attempt an operation with it.

    Try right-clcking on the unallocated space and choose Format from the list.

    That is what I tried:

    I haven't gotten an opportunity to try the previous strategy. But I will update whether that works or not.
