Hey guys, im trying to partition a microsd card (2gb, samsung), into FAT and ext4 for use with link2sd, using Minitool Partiticion Wizard.
Now, the Fat partition turns out well, but the ext4 one keeps ending up like unpartitioned space.
I tried formating into ext2, ext3, linux swap, change size, cluster size, no result. The only file sistem thats succesfuly is FAT, FAT32, NTFS.
Thanks in advance!

Anyway i kinnda fixed it, i chosed FAT for both partitions then i formated the second one from fat into ext4 and it seems to work for now.
