    you're going to use gparted or parted (partitioning programs) to partition the hard drive. There are many ways to partition a drive for linux, so you should look online for linux partition schemes – Liam Mar 12 '16 at 6:46

These simplest what of doing this is to boot your system using Ubuntu bootable USB and open gparted app.
There you can do partitioning in the way you like.

Remember, you cannot have more than 4 primary partition. If you need more, you must make one extended partition which gives you option for making other partitions withing it.

By having a simple search in web you can find good tips for partitioning.

  • Remember to make one partition for swap. It is suggested to keep it double of your RAM but maximum 8GB. – Mostafa Ahangarha Mar 12 '16 at 5:45
  • There is only a primary partition limit of four if the OP installs an old style MBR. – Anthon Mar 12 '16 at 15:02
