Why can't I create a new partition as per below? This is the disk of a physical server running Hyper-V 2012.

enter image description here

Any help appreciated!


2 Terabyte limit on MBR disks. Convert the disk to GPT for > 2TB.

Edit: For completeness - Back up all your data first. Wipe out all the partitions and volumes on the disk. Then right-click on the disk itself on the left hand side and choose "Convert to GPT."
