When you say, "Created partition through Shrink", do you mean by using the
Shrink Volume function of Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc)? Or are you using
some third-party utility named Shrink?
You may simply be the victim of sometimes-inconsistent hard drive size
arithmetic, where 60 GB does not always equal 60,000 MB. :>( Will the
Wizard let you use whatever number shows up by default in the requested size
Have you rebooted since shrinking the first partition? Sometimes the BIOS
and Vista need a fresh start to get in sync as to hard drive and partition
sizes. Maybe exiting and restarting Disk Management would be enough; maybe
Vista also includes the DiskPart shell (diskpart.exe). This is more
powerful (and therefore can be more dangerous) than Disk Management; it
might do what you need without third-party help. But be careful with it.
I have used DM's Shrink Volume function successfully a few times.
