Chapter 2. Configuring Hardware > Use more than four partitions

2.7. Use more than four partitions

Basic disks in Windows 2000 are limited to no more than four partitions, just as in DOS, Windows 9x, or Windows NT. Dynamic disks, a new feature in Windows 2000, let you create more than four partitions on a disk. Aside from this distinction, dynamic disks are essentially the same as basic disks. However, dynamic disks are not supported by or visible to other operating systems, including Windows NT. If Windows 2000 is your only operating system on the computer, or if you don't need to see the dynamic disk and its contents from your other OS, this isn't a problem.

See Section 2.9 to learn how to create a dynamic disk.
