I hope that I name it that right. I have a root partition a home partition and swap. All I want is to add a partition for windows. BUT my drive is full so I want to shrink the logical home partition 900gb and then assign the 100 gb to windows ntfs. The problem is that the home partition is under extended and when I shrink it the 100 gb for Windows is under extended too. I cannot get it to primary, always logical. How can i change this without data loss? I do not have external drive to empty my drive.
