Some more deteils may help understanding the issue.

Please explain what exactly you are doing, and what happens. Some screenshots might help as well.

Hi,

Nothing is showing here.

Note-It's a ESXI boot LUN.

ESXI Version-7.0.2

VMware never supported creating a VMFS partition on the ESXi boot volume from the GUI.
If there's free disk space you may be able to create a VMFS partition from the command line.

However, what confuses me is the "Legacy MBR" partition label.
Can you please post the following command's output (replace the DeviceName)
partedUtil getptbl "/vmfs/devices/disks/DeviceName"
