How to force BIBM to create logical drive

Postby skrewdover » Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:53 pm

In latest BIBM 1.12a boot disk, in partition work, I see no option to specify you want a new partition to be logical or primary.

Starting w/ a blank, SATA disk, say I create C:\ drive for new OS partition.

The next few partitions I want to be logical. It doesn't give an option to specify primary or extended / logical, AFAIK.
Yes, if you limit primary partitions to 4, it won't create more than 4 primary & anymore beyond that would automatically be logical.

Many other partitioning tools offer this option & maybe there's a way in BIBM, but I don't see anything in user manual on it.
Thanks.

if you want an extended partition, create one (it's in the list, or just
choose 5 (it will adjust as needed)). Then you'll see the free space under
it (volume type) indented where you can create your volumes.
