can i divide it to 3 primary partitions in advance using diskpart?
Hello Shayx.

Yes you can, here are the commands.

diskpart <enter>
List disk <enter>
select disk # (# your disk number) <enter>
create partition primary 10240MB <enter> you will have to enter the size you want to create in MB

Do that for all the partitions/volumes you want to create.

If you want a GUI to see better what you are doing, use free Partition Wizard bootable CD as suggested earlier. It is a great tool to have around for Win7.

It also has the ability to wipe specific partitions, whereas DISKPART can only Clean a volume or disk.
