convert logical partition to primary

hi i need to convert a logical partition to primary partition in win 7 ultimate, but cant seem to find a way to do it so far, i need to change the logical to primary so to be able to install an operating system on that partition.

iv read that the MBR in win 7 will only accommodate 4 primary partition's but is this per disk drive? or only four!!?? overall!?

hopefully a snapshot will be below any help will be gratefully received

Hello Web, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can also install an OS on a logical partition the same a primary partition. I've done it several times.
