  1. You can do it from Windows.
  2. Thanks a lot for the info. Can I do it from Windows 7 professional 64 bit.

    If so which is the best way to partition the Western Digital 3TB External
    Hard drive into Primary and logical partitions
    Total No. of partitions I want to have is 8.

    3 or more for installing operating systems and the
    rest for data storage --Extended or Logical Partitions.

    In one of them I want to have Oracle database to install
    (Free from Oracle --for Study purpose).

    I don't know what is extended or Logical. I only heard the name.
    Iam not sure what they are.

    Please help me sir.

    Thank you
