    No you don't. Just install and it will make the partitions it requires. Boot from your USB key, delete all partitions (assuming you don't want anything already on the disk) and then install.

    Why do you need more than 4?

    As a minimum Windows requires (for BIOS) 1 partition. For EFI (which you aren't using) it requires 2.

    If you partition using MBR partitioning scheme you can make the final partition extended to increase the limit of 4.

    Are you trying to dualboot or something?

    My experience has been that it is better to let Windows setup make the partitions on a blank disc during setup, then adjust them to what you want using MiniTool Partition Wizard Free after setup is done and Windows is running.

    By all means create separate partitions for data and keep as much as reasonably possible away from the OS partition.

    I would suggest caution if you are relocating user folders normally on C: (as is supported) - several people have got themselves into some difficulty having attempted that. You might like to search the forum to find such threads.

    Storing user folders on other drives is built in properly to windows 10 - just go to setings , storage to change.

    This was essential to be able to manage tablets/hybrids often with a 32GB mmc drive.

    Since 10586, you can install apps as well (not sure about win32 programs).
