Read the tutorial to see how it is done. You are allowed four Primary, but Disk Mgmt will create Logical by default as fourth partition for further expansion.
You may wish to do this is you ever run Recovery Disks, so your Recov partition remains intact since it is more stable method for running Recovery than the disks.
