What is computer management?

Question

How can I change the active partition on my hard drive? I have partitioned my hard drive in 3, but it will only let me set a Primary DOS Partition active. I have tried not having any Primary DOS Partition, but then fdisk just says that it can't set any partition active. I know that this feature is here for a reason, and I have a use for it, so please, how do I create more than one bootable partition on my hard disk?

If you go to administrative tools on your control panel then computer management then disk management you should be able to partition the disk you want if not download a software called partition magic and it will allow you to do it through there as well
