I am dual-booting Ubuntu and Win 8.
When I installed Ubuntu, I forgot to format a partition of 90GB.
Now when I tried to create a partition (in gparted), I get this error
It is not possible to create more than 4 primary partitions
If you want more partitions you should first create an extended partition. Such a partition can contain other partitions. Because an extended partition is also a primary partition it might be necessary to remove a primary partition first.
Here's a Screen Shot:
sda1 is that small space that windows loves to create for reasons unclear to me
sda2 and sda4 are windows 8 drives C: and E:
sda3 is my linux drive
the last unallocated 10.2MB? I have no idea where that came from.
But why is Ubuntu counting Window's drives as primary?
But more importantly, how can I get that 90GB back, Win8 Disk Management also gives some error :(
