When you install ANY OS you add partitions to a disk. Just because you let the automatic installer do the partitions for you doesn't mean the disk is not partitioned. If you run:

sudo parted -l

You will see the partitions.

Are you wanting to reinstall and make a newly partitioned disk or do you want to try and keep what you have in place now?

Got this when i tried that command

sajid@sajid:~$ sudo parted -l
[sudo] password for sajid:
no talloc stackframe at ../source3/param/loadparm.c:4864, leaking memory
Model: ATA ST1000LM024 HN-M (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: gpt

Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
 1 1049kB 538MB 537MB fat32 boot
 2 538MB 996GB 995GB ext4
 3 996GB 1000GB 4182MB linux-swap(v1)

Then I suggest you run a full backup and you can boot to liveCD / liveUSB and resize your partitions to make them as you desire.

Can't We do it Manually ??

How would it not?

Do you expect the OS to automatically guess the size and filesystem you want?

How would that work?

Can you help with this problem?
