Why do you want to?

You have 4 primary partitions.

That's fine.

If you want a 5th partition, then you will have to deal with logicals.

You are ignoring questions.

Why do you feel the need to use logical partitions at this time??

The problem is that i want to install another OS, for this i need to create another partition in my C drive that will be named like E, isnt logical partition the only solution for me since i have a manufactured PC?

You NEED to install another OS ? Why ? Let me guess Windows 8 ? Don`t waste your time. It`s not worth the effort.

Leave your pc alone b4 you render it useless.

Get another hard drive to install it on. If you don`t know what your doing you shouldn`t be messing with your main pc. If it is I`m saying.
