If it's from a clean install it does for sure. Follow this guide:

If you aren't doing a clean install, or it's a secondary drive, try here:

Only for use during initial installation, not for re-sizing after
installation. However, if you have "empty space" after installation, the
disk management tool will allow you to create & delete, and of course
format, partitions in the empty space.
