Most likely because you've already hit the 4 primary partition limit on an msdos style partition table.

Can you boot to the LiveUSB, select "Try Peppermint" (not "install Peppermint"), then when you're at the desktop, open a terminal and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
sudo blkid

Hmm, weird.

Have you tried manually shrinking the Windows partition (in Windows) leaving empty space behind it.

The checked if the installer offers to install to "alongside Windows" in the free space ?



How full is the Windows partition ?

Is there any chance you can try say a Lubuntu 18.04 LiveUSB and see if that offers "Alongside Windows 10" .. it may be that for whatever reason your partitioning scheme is confusing the ubiquity installer.

If that turns out to be the case, you'll have no option other than to select "something else" and set your partitions manually.
