It depends on what boot method you are using. If you installed 8 on an older bios based machine, 8 will support 4 primary partitions plus multiple extended partitions.

If you are booting using UEFI, you can have up to 128 partitions without having to designate them as primary or extended.

Follow the instructions HERE for partitioning. W8 has its own partition manager - no need for other software.

Your service center needs to get some education. However, three 150g partitions will get you on your way to using the rig the way you want.
