When using recovery disks received from IBM, I don't get the option to create partitions on the HDD. Can someone suggest how this can be done either before or after running the recovery disk please?

My question however is how to create the partition when running recovery disks. When i insert the 1st disk, it just says the whole HDD will be reformatted. So, if I have already pre-created 2 partitions or 3, they will again be deleted. The recovery disk does not give an option to create more partitions.
Any ideas or solutions?

No, The recovery discs do not give the option to create partitions.What you can do is interrupt the recovery process.
Right after the last disc has run it will reboot. If you catch it there you can use something like partedmagic to resize and create partitions. When you are finished with the partitions, reboot and let the restore process finish.
