issue with adding a new hard drive

I just added a new hard drive an I am in gparted and when i try to create a primary partition I can only choose hfs, what am I doing wrong? I want to create ext3 or ext4

Don’t know why it’s working from the graphic call…

look here, the same problem is already discussed.
