Convert Logical Partition to Primary
- Click on the object partition to make it active.
- Choose "Convert to Primary" and follow the guidance.
In general, Logical partitions function like primary partitions except the following parts.
|Partition Type||Can be used to install OS||Maximum number on MBR disk|
|Logical Partition||No||No limit|
The number limit on MBR disk is all depend on disk type (MBR or GPT). On a MBR disk, there can be at most four primary partitions (no logical partition in such situation). If you want to create one more partition (logical), you have to make one primary partition extended first and then create logical partitions on the extended partition. An extended partition can hold logical partitions with no limit. There’s no division of logical and logical partition on GPT disk.
Microsoft Management Console (MMC) has no snap-in tool for this conversion, neither Disk Management (DM) nor Diskpart or other command order. Then, we have to resort to a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, a professional and powerful disk partition manager.
