First of all the disk doesnt show as primary in Windows Disk Managment when I try to split a certain partition but rather simple volume. When I split the partition, I can allocate to NTFS as easy as it sounds. However when I try to allocate using the Ubuntu installation, I can only see the whole partitiom that I split to two as NTFS and not the new partition I created as free space.
The laptop had Windows 8 installed in it, and upgraded to Win10. I believe the disk is GPT and not MBR.
How do I solve this problem? Without having to format/lose data.
