Partition new additonal hard drive from Windows XP

Recently I bought another hard drive and had to add it to my current working workstation that is powered by Windows XP.

I didn’t had a fdisk utility or any other commercial disk management software so I used built in Windows XP disk management utility called diskmgmt.msc
You can run it from Start -> Run -> diskmgmt.msc <hit enter>

And from there you can add partitions and of course format the drive. Good luck and I hope this small howto paper helps someone.
