This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
I've used GParted Live CD in the past with success, it's a linux boot disk designed for partitoning. I should have mentioned that despite being a linux disk, it works for sorting out windows partitions too. I split my laptop up to install the windows 7 beta using this.
