In our computer system , we usually divide our hard disk into partitions . There are three kinds of partitions ie., primary , logical and extended .There must be 4 primary partitions in our computer & many logical partitions .This error message got generated when there is already 4 primary partition & you are creating an another partition. If you are getting this error message while creating a partition then follow these easy tips to get rid of this problem .
It might be very confusing to you , but let me explain the procedure . If you have already 4 primary partitions , then you have exceeded the number of primary partitions . If you attempt to create an another partition then you will get error “There are no free MBR slots available on the hard disk”. So ,there is only one way available that is to convert primary partition into logical partition.
