Summary0016994: GUI installer splits msdos table after 3 partitions
Description1. Upon the creation of a 4th msdos primary partition, the installer creates a 4th extended partition for a new table and places the requested 4th partition in a 5th logical partition. For msdos/mbr, this would make sense if creating a 5th partition, but not a 4th.

2. Isn't it about time to consider the switch from msdos partition table to gpt?
Steps To Reproduce1. Start 8.1 install from DVD
2. Configure Disk > Manually
3. Select "Standard Partition"
4. Create 4 partitions

* /boot - 1 GiB
* /var - 4 GiB
* / - 4+ GiB
* swap - 1 GiB
Additional InformationI realize it's not quite like this, but maybe something along the lines of...

# Partition Table
/usr/bin/dd bs=512 count=10 if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda
/usr/sbin/parted --script /dev/sda mklabel gpt
/usr/sbin/parted --script /dev/sda print
