New DELL Inspiron 15 7000 denies to shrink windows installation hard disk drive
I've got a new Inspiron 15 a couple of days ago with the following configuration:
Intel core i7 7700HQ cpu
512GB SSD (bios reports M.2 PCIe ssd-0) -- no other hard drive
Graphics card NVidia Geforce GTX 1050 Ti
Screen resolution 3840 x 2160
My problem is that I cannot split the hard disk into 2 partitions nor can i shrink the partition on which windows is installed from within windows. I used both the windows gui (disk management) and the command line program diskpart.

It sounds like you might have a 7567 Gaming system. If so, Windows will shrink a partition if it can. I would not recommend using a third party utility to shrink it since problems could happen and you might lose the system.
If you need another partition, you should have an option to place a 2.5 inch drive in the system for that.
