Unable to make 5 (five) partitions in Yosomite using terminal
1 1

Question

How to make following  five partitions in 1 T.B. hard disk using terminal?

1. Yosemite HD - 190 GB - format Mac OS extended (journaled)
2. Cinema - 250 GB - Format ExFat
3. Windows 8.1 -170 GB - Format MS Dos
4. Mavericks HD - 180 GB - format Mac Os extended (journaled)
5. Songs & Texts - 200 GB - format ExFat

Please help me out as I could not mount the last partition out of 5 partions (i.e. disk2s6) using Disk Utility in Yosemite 10.10.1.

 My laptop is Acer E5-571 33YS.  The hardware specs are given below.
CPU:                              Intel Core i3-4030U Cpu @ 1.90 GHz.
Chipset:                        Intel Haswell ULT, Socket 1168 BGA
Motherboard:                EA50_HB
Graphics:                      Intel HD 4400 (Microsoft Basic Display Adapter)
Ethernet:                      Gigabit Ethernet
Wireless LAN:                IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Wlan:                             i) BT Atheros WB335
                                      ii) BT4.0 BCM43142
                                      iii) BT 4.0Atheros WB222
                                      iv) Qualcom Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network           
                                          Adapter (PCI- Express)
Audio Card:                    Realtek ALC283


I made 5 partitions in 1 TB hard disk with Master Boot Record or Guid Partition Table with different formats i.e. ExFat, MS Dos, Mac OS Journaled, but the last partition could not be mounted. The message coming is “Could not mount disk2s6 with name Texts after erase”. As a result, essential.pkg could not be extracted and installation fails at 14th minutes remaining  time If by luck the installation completes, I cannot see any bootloader icons to boot from the hard drive.
Can you find a way out to make the installation successful?  Also let me know how to install wify software for my above wify card in windows.
