Woahh! :-O

That is strange indeed. An extended (container) partition as bootable. Right now, I wouldn't know how to handle that. I simply do not know.

Notice that you have about half of the disk unused (15013..30401), and due to the strange positioning of sda2 and sda3, it has to go to sda4, all of it.
