My advice is not to attempt to do it. Once Windows is installed on a Boot Camp created partition, creating another partition within Windows may either wind up damaging the Windows boot sector or your Mac OS X boot sector. Do not use Acronis True Image, Ghost, or any other similar program as they do not work. (you already found that out) The Windows 7 Disk Manager will work but it will damage the boot sector in the process.

The only safe way to create two partitions for Windows is not to use the Boot Camp assistant to install Windows. But instead use Disk Utility from your install DVD to create the partitions first and then install Windows manually. That will work if done carefully.

And do you really need two partitions? I used to create partitions in Windows for everything but came to realize it's a lot easier to just keep everything on the same partition.
