Win8.1 shows BIBM allocated as Unallocated

Postby hime3 » Sat Apr 25, 2015 5:14 am

intended to post in BIBM not BING, so copied and posted to BIBM

Converted GPT to EMBR.
Made extended partition.
Allocated space to 5 volumes.
Disk Management shows space Unallocated.
Rescan disk. Still unallocated.
File manager does not show partition allocations and names.
OS and file manager always showed BIBM and BING allocations in past years.
Is the issue EMBR and/or Win8.1 nuances?
If so, will consider limiting partitions to 4 (delete WinRe and/or OEM recovery partitions) to change drive type to MBR.
Also, wondering if no mouse, no keyboard issues installing Win7 might relate to EMBR vs MBR.

Image for Windows shows BIBM extended partitions (volumes).
