I have a strange problem. I have an external HDD which I use it for a linux version I use. I deleted all the partitions on it in order to create some new partitions.
I deleted all previous partitions and now I have one huge 950GB unallocated partition. My problem is that I can not create an extended or logical partition. I have used 4 different software to re-partition my drive, but I can only have 4 Primary partition. I am sure that I had 2 logical partitions before all of this on this external HDD. I have used:
1-Live Ubuntu 2-Live Gparted 3-MiniTool partition 4-EaseUS Partition Master
In all above methods I can not choose extended or logical partition because they are inactive. I know 4 primary partitions are enough for me, but I would like to know what is wrong that I can not create an extended or logical partition.
