We didn't understand your question because the information you gave was very minimal. Read your own question again and assess then if the information you have given us is enough to answer your question!
In my opinion the best thing you can do (if you want it to do manually and different each time again) is to create vbscripts where you diskpart your disk and use an inputbox to provide the size in MB's and build in a step to repeat the action to another part of the disk and a manual exit so that the task sequence will continue. Dont forget to check "continue on error". Anyways I think that would be one solution however, I think you should automate it with MDT.
Downside of this solution is that if you make a typo or forget some zero's your build wil fail anyway.
Besides this you can also format in percentages: C:\ 40% D:\ 60% and if the machines you are going to partition are unique in some way (like model for instance) you can use multiple format and partition steps when they match the exact condition for each partition action.
And finally, keep in mind that MDT is a tool which deploy's operating systems in a uniform, consistent and automated way. It's build for bulk, not for specific single handed actions!
Keep us posted, and if helpful please rate! Kind regards

You can try to add partitioning in unattended.xml
(won't be in the answer file by default, but it's in the image so you can add it)
Did never test this myself though, I assume the partitioning window will appear before selecting a TS.
You will need to change the default MDT partitioning behaviour a bit as it will delete your created partitions otherwise.
