is it possible  you are referring to extended partitions, which can be subdivided into logical partitions?

more info :  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_partitioning
You can create 3 primary and 1 extended partitions. Inside the extended partitions you can create as many partitions as you have space. As a test I created once 400 partitions. Not with Windows but with third party partitioning tool.
