Hi Hany2012,

In Windows 8 Advanced Boot Menu (F8) has been removed also the recover and restore options have been changed. You can see the following Microsoft Article for more details on how to recover Windows 8:

Please revert for clarification.

Hi Hany2012,

Here are the generic steps on how to partition the Hard Drive in Windows 8 Operating System:

1. Hold the Windows logo key on your keyboard and press "R" (Winkey+R).
2. Type "diskmgmt.msc" in the run dialog box and press Enter. This will open the Windows Disk Management utility.
3. Right-click the main drive and select "Shrink Volume."
4. Enter the amount you want to shrink the hard disk by in megabytes (1000 megabytes = 1 gigabyte). For example if you want to create a 1 gigabyte partition, enter 1,000 megabytes in the text box.
5. Click "Shrink."
6. You will then see the region of unallocated space (shaded black).
7. Right-click the region of unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume."
8. This will launch the New Simple Volume Wizard.
9. Assign the disk a drive letter. Choose any drive letter that is not currently in use.
10. Select a file system for the disk (such as NTFS or FAT).
11. Next name the partition in the "Volume Label" text box.
12. Click "Finish" to create the new partition.

Please reply if you have any further questions.
