Hi all..

4 GB RAM
500 GB Hard Disk
Intel T6600 processor
CREATIVE Sound Blaster(R) X-Fi MB
15.6 " Full HD(1080p)WLED (1920 x 1080)Display with TrueLife(TM)

and so on..!! I have made the payment and now i am waiting for the delivery..!!

In this regards i want to know some things.Dell will only give me standard partitions.That is 2 partitions.
I need to divide the 500 GB into 5 drives ( C to G)..??

How can i do this..??

simple- Search in google for partition magic ( http://www.google.com.np/search?hl=ne&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=gTY&q=partitions+magic&btnG=%E0%A4%96%E0%A5%8B%E0%A4%9C%E0%A5%80&aq=f&oq= ) and download it from any link you want.

But is it 100% safe to do the partitioning like that..?? I need a hassle free and the safest way of doing it..!!

PartitionMagic is not free, and while it works, there's a better way.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/files/gparted-live-stable/0.4.6-1/gparted-live-0.4.6-1.iso/download

The above is a download of the latest version of the Gnome Partition Editor live CD. Basically, you can burn this to a CD, reboot with the CD inserted (you may need to change your BIOS settings to boot from CD before hard disk) and a utility to repartition your hard disks will appear. Screenshots.

It's very straightforward to use. You simply click on one of your existing partitions, choose "resize/move" and shrink it down. Then you can create new partitions - if you want them all to be Windows partitions, pick the NTFS filesystem (ext2 is the default, but Windows can't understand anything except FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS without a 3rd party driver).

Pro tip for fladry: that link is insanely long - this one is the same but shorter: http://www.google.com/search?q=partition+magic

I agree with using GParted. It works flawlessly, and you shouldn't have to worry about any causing any damage. Of course, there are some rare cases where things can go wrong, but it's usually nothing to worry about. I would back up anything important first, just in case (a friend of mine didn't, and accidentally deleted a partition).
