I resized the extended partition (/dev/sda4 <check the screenshot below>) and left 1MB of unallocated space after it but that didn't work.
Arch still gives me the same error.
Here's the output of "fidsk -l"

Here's the Disk Utility Gui with Labels that I created that might help:
Nevermind when I moved the right boundary I used MB instead of Cylinder, after I used Cylinder the Archlinux setup doesn't seem to complain anymore... I'll finish the setup and post back...
Thank you all for the help... Appreciated!
