Windows 7: Help required - Multiboot

Help required - Multiboot

Hey guys,

In my current pc, I have 4 partitions (all primary)- System Reserved, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Abhishek (Personal Data).

Now I want to install ubuntu on another partition, so how do I create it because I already have four primary partitions. If I convert Abhishek to logical then I will have 3 primary and 1 logical partition. Still I cannot create a partition(neither primary nor logical).
Space is not a problem.
So now what to do.

Convert E to Logical using that feature on Easeus or Partition Wizard to set partition Logical.

Then shrink E as needed to add as many adjacent Logical Partitions as needed: Partition Wizard Create Partition - Video Help

If you need to add or borrow any space from another partition - even if it's not adjacent - use the cool new PW feature to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help. I would use the PW Boot Disk which has never failed, while all others except Disk Mgmt can fail with data loss during resizing - so make a backup image first!
