There's probably a really stupid answer staring at me in the face right now and my noob blindness is not letting me see it.
Please forgive me.
But, I'm using Minitool to repartion my SanDisk 16GB microSD card for Link2SD, and, when I try to get a 2GB partition going, the primary ends up being the 2GB and the new one is 12GB.
Here's a screenie of what happens as soon as I resize the partition.

All I do is move the slider over to 1.99GB.
What's going on??
Or am I doing everything right??
I'm worried. :(

I'd just back up your stuff and do it from recovery. Seems much easier that way.

You have to do your primary first, so when you do it make the first one what you want the primary to be and then you can make the rest your ext.

But I don't wanna wipe my SD, and I just wanna do it this way. D:

phones are far picker when it comes to partitions then computers are. i know i've read that you should partition it with the device you intend to use it in from the recovery menu under advanced. just copy everything on your sd card to a computer do the partition from recovery and when its done and everything is up and running copy everything back. no loss :)
