Start the computer in Command Prompt Mode.

Step 2Type "FDISK." The partition window will appear with menu options.

Step 3Enter 5 if you're partitioning a second drive, and select the drive; otherwise, skip to the next step.

Step 4Enter 1 (Create DOS Partition or Logical DOS Drive).

Step 5Enter 2 (Create Extended DOS) to create a partition.

Step 6Enter N when the program asks if you want to use the maximum available size.

Step 7Designate the amount of disk space to allocate to the second partition (the partition will be assigned the next drive letter).

Step 8Type a name for the new partition and press Enter. The partition menu will appear.

Step 9Repeat steps 5 through 8 to create additional partitions.

Step 10Press Esc to exit the partition command.

Step 11Format the newly created partitions (see "How to Format a Hard Drive").
