Creating partitions with command prompt [For win7 & XP]

Yes! you can create partitions with the command prompt. if i guess right, you are think what is the use of the command prompt when we can access the GUI.but the Graphical User Interface is not always suits to our need. for example in Win7 we cannot create extended partitions easily.
So now we are going to create partitions with the command prompt.
first open the "command prompt" by type"cmd" in the run box.
type "diskpart", the Diskpart program will open.

Disk part is the microsoft's advanced disk management tool.

first you have to select your harddisk.
type "list disk" to list your disks.
now type"select disk X". 'X' is the no. of your disk.

now the harddisk will be selected.
to create a primary parttion type "create parttion primary size=XXXXX"

to create a extended partition type "create partition extended size=XXXXX"

now to create logical parttions in the extended partition, first you have to select the extended partition.
to do this type "select partition X", where X is the extended partition's no. to know it type "list partition".
after select the extended partition type "create partition logical size=XXXXX", to create logical partition with size "XXXXX".
