hello,
i am using 500 gb seagates harddisk,
having 4 partitions,
1. 40gb (windows 7)
2. 100mb( windows boot)
3. 26gb
4. 400gb

but the confusion actually is, there is no 8mb partition or whatever it call,
what should i do? should i make manually(shrink)?
should i repartition my hardd? is 8mb is necessary?

Oh - older hdds have 8mb cache - memory, not on the hard drive but as a memory chip in its controller. Most new hdds now have 64mb cache. It helps them work faster.
