Logical Partition instead of Primary/Primary Bootable Partition?

#1 Post by Spawn » 02 Jun 2016, 15:24

Hello again, the flash drive was successfully formatted and created partition successfully without any problems.
When I clicked Analyse it says Bad sector count. No partition is bootable.

After that, I clicked Quick Search and then this screen is showing

After clicking Quick Search, The listed partitions are listed Logical and Extended only. Is there any problem if I would write these type of partitions to my flash drive? Or I should convert it to Primary or Primary Bootable first before writing it back to the flash drive? What should I do? Thanks in advance!

In your case, P(rimary) is the best choice.

Thanks sir! I've manage to fix the flash drive and it works well now even though it was not using a Primary partition. :)
