How to create more than 3 primary partition?

Hi, and yes I reach my limit and have 3 primary partition but I want to create one more. So is there any software or method to create a primary partition? If so please tell me how thanks and thank you very very very very much.

You cannot get around that restriction. You can have 3 primary partitions, period.


*edit* Incorrect - you can have 4 primary partitions on a MBR disc, or 3 primary and 1 extended partition.

I have no idea. You should probably find a forum that's dedicated to installing a Mac OS on non-Apple hardware and ask over there. You'll get better assistance doing that.

Use a 3rd party partitioner, partition wizard (free), partition assistant (free), Easeus home edition (free), or any number of others.


I am curious why you want a 4th primary -if it is to install MAC - I don't know if you need a primary for that - better google for people who have done that kind of thing.

I need to clarify my previous post. You can have 4 primary partitions on a drive, or 3 primary partitions and an extended partition. You can use the built in Windows partitioner to create up to 4 partitions as I mentioned previously.
