In order to have more that one operation system in your pc you can either:

1. partition your hard drive
2. try to install software's like virtual PC or virtual box, and install your new OS using one of these software's, therefore there's no need for partitioning the hard drive....unless you are willing to...

Back up your datas !!!

go to disk management

Right click on your primary partition-shrink it to make sure that all partitions created by extending it has been shrinked to it

Now use a third party disk partition softwares to partition them again and try installing OS
