No, it's not equivalent.

If you tell the installer to "Use whole disk", it will - unless I'm very
much mistaken - create _one_ partition, the size of the entire disk, and
install into that.

If you want to have multiple partitions, and you don't have free space
to create them in, then - as Brian said - you need to specify which
existing partitions to delete, and then create the needed partitions (or
let let the installer create them) in the newly-available free space.
