We need more information about your partition layout. Please start from a live-CD (the Ubuntu CD will do), run the command
Code:
sudo lsblk
and post the output here (using code-tags, see my signature).

I am going to test my psychic powers. Did you create 23GB of free space with a partitioning tool and left it as "unallocated space", instead of designating it as a "primary partition"?

First; do what TobiSGD asked you to do.
Second; provide some information. Describe exactly what you do when you try to create the partition and mention which partitioning tool you are using (Parted Magic, etc.).
