I just found bios setting & enabled boot from cd/dvd as 1st option & then I restarted & when pressed esc the following options appear:
"F1 system information
F2 system diagnostics
F9 boot device options
F10 bios setup
F11 system recovery

ENTER-continue setup"

What to do now?

Yes, reboot now, and when power on, press and hold F9, until a menu called boot menu pops up.

Select the first 1 , hit enter .

A lot of lines will go with a speed ... dont worry. At a time, it will ask you to choose resolution. You are to type 1 there, and hit enter again, to get into the UI.

You can create them in Disk Management or in PW.

But we'd like to see a screen shot of what you see now--either in PW or DM.

Don't make your new partitions just yet.

You can always go back into PW any time.
