Exclamation [Q] Issue on increasing the internal memory

Hello Everybody
I have Sony Xperia L ( Android 4.2.2 - 15.3.A.1.17 Firmware - Rooted - with locked bootloader ), ( I had never flash any custom ROMs or unlock the bootloader before )
I tried to extend my internal memory with the method of partitioning the SD card " That's why I rooted my phone !! "- I have 16 G.B SD Card - I downloaded the Minitool Partition software, and made the 1st partition 10 G.B Fat32 primary , and the 2nd partition 4.26 G.B Ext2 primary.
But when I insert the SD Card in the phone, I got bootloop issue, otherwise when I remove it, the phone operates normally.
I tried to make the 2nd partition format Ext3 and I got the same result, and Ext4 but at this time the phone operates normally but the SD Card couldn't recognized !!!! , and when I delete this 2nd partition, the phone operates normally.
So, please I need help to solve this **** issue
I'll be grateful, Thanks

Most likely because the tool you are using isn't very good for stuff like this. I know, it's weird, it creates the partitions and all of that, but something about the Windows tool that just messes things up. I've had the exact same problem on another phone. Typically gparted is recommended for these kinds of things. You should be able to set up a Ubuntu Live CD or bootable USB drive to use the gparted tool there.

Like so:

Though if you have a newer bootable Ubuntu version, you won't need to install gparted.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com for more info!

Thanks mate
I'm gonna try this, and I'll tell you the results.
but one question:
you mean I make a partition on linux and the other in windows ???
I mean I need to make a partition to link it with the internal memory and that's will be the ( Ext2, Ext3, or Ext4 ) , and the other will be for storing ordinary files.

I tried to changing the file system from Ubuntu Live DVD like you said ( Boot from the DVD not Installed ) and I used Gparted program ( Built-in the DVD ) and the same result
I have 2 questions:
1- Is the order of the partitions make change, I mean the right or the lift one in the Gparted program ???
2- Is that any other way to extend the internal memory please mention in the comment
Thanks....
