What you can do is look into a Utility program called Partition Magic which is a software that allows you to repartition your hardrives without you needed to run a fix disk command (fdisk)

and basically add more space virtual space to existing partitions without loosing any of your original settings

CAUTION: WHEN USING PARTITION MAGIC ON YOUR HARDDRIVE YOUR COMPUTER WILL REWRITE THE BIOS TO YOUR HARDDRIVE AND THE DEFAULT BIOS SETTING WILL BECOME PROGRAMMED FOR PARTITION MAGIC ONLY
