I Have Partitioning Issue

During windows installation, I want to partition my drive into 3-4 sections. System Reserved, Partition 1 & 2 (Logical). But everytime I make "New" partition, the installation interfering me by suggesting a suitable partitions.

Is there a way to keep me manually partitioning my hard drive?

Thanks in advance,

MTH

Hi MTH,

Is your drive partition style MBR or GPT?

Is this a first Windows 10 installation or a re-install?

MBR can only have a maximum of 4 partitions, that may be the cause of this

Please provide a photo of that window where you are setting up the partitions . ..

It sounds like you do have an MBR install.  As mentioned, the drive can only have 4 primary partitions.  You will only be given the option to create a logical partition if you have available drive space after the 4 primary partitions are already created.

Thanks for the answers, guys. I figured it out already and I beg your pardon for my late reply.

Short story, I want to reinstall my device, but the automatic partition from the installer interfering my manual way to do it. As soon as I run partitioning program, just as I thought, my drive became a GPT format. This must be the trace from my last windows installation. So I reset my hard drive totally to MBR, then start anew. Problem solved.
