Every new partition created is automatically logical.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.
Whenever I try to create a new partition using Windows' Disk Management tool, it automatically creates a logical partition instead of a normal primary one. Why does this happen? Pics below.



And, if I try to create the partition in my secondary HDD (not my system one), it gives me this error.



It says "The parameter is not correct", it's the first time I see this in any computer. I'm running under Windows 10 Pro x64 with the anniversary update, both are HDDs at 7200rpm, no SSDs.

Disk 0 has a partition taking up the entire disk so there isn't enough free space for more partitions.
Disk 1 already has the maximum number of primary partitions.
