A second Extended Partition ?(fdisk)

Are the new partitions for a linux system?
If so, there is a solution: sw raid.

Make md_d0 a (degraded), partitionable raid1 array of sda3.

mdadm --assemble --level 1 --force -n 1 --run --auto=p2 /dev/md_d0 /dev/sda3

Once you have md_d0, you can create md_d0p1 as a regular partition,
md_d0p2 as an extended partition, and 4 logical partitions inside

You may have to be explicit on the kernel command line:
md=d0,/dev/sda3 root=/dev/md_d0
