Yes .. you can only have 4 PRIMARY partitions, but you can have 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partition .. the extended partition can contain any number of logical partitions :)

Anyway, DON'T try to create the partitions for Peppermint .. the installer will do all
that for you.

what you want to do is

a) use gparted to delete the peppermint partition (/dev/sda4)
leaving unpartitioned space at the end of the drive

b) close synaptic and reboot to the LiveCD

c) once rebooted to the LiveCD desktop, click the "Install Peppermint" icon.

at some point it will offer tto install Peppermint along side Windows .. accept that
and continue with the installation .. the installer will do the partitioning for you.

Thanks a lot, your advice in the previous post works! Now I'm writing this from Peppermint on my HDD ;-)

First I changed the peppermint partition into an unusable space on gparted. Then the newly appeared option "Install Peppermint alongside them".

Again, big thanks to PCNetSpec! :-D

Issue
I guess this instruction page needs to be modified:
