Remember that Windows limits you to 4 primary partitions when creating new partitions.

Maybe previous Windows OS'ses. When I just look within my disk management at Windows 8 to my existing drives, SSD's etc. I see already 7 primary partitions, 5 assigned as active (I can boot from each of them).

OK, let's be more specific then.  MBR based systems are limited to 4 primary partitions.  GPT based 64-bit systems can have 128 primary partitions if you have a UEFI capable motherboard.
