Subject description: Large Hard Disk Partitioning and BIOS/MBR Info By Rod Smith
 

As hard drives get bigger....into Terabytes, [1000s Gb] the old DOS partitioning scheme MBR has become redundant as it cannot address extremely large 2Tb> partitions

Many newer PCs are shipping with something called Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) firmware, or Gui Partition Table [GPT]

For explanations of this, and how to use GPT FDisk see the excellent tutorial by Rod Smith

http://www.rodsbooks.com/gdisk/

see also his MBR limitation workarounds

http://www.rodsbooks.com/gdisk/workarounds.html

and What is a GPT?

http://www.rodsbooks.com/gdisk/whatsgpt.html

and BIOS to UEFI transformation

Missing Partitions in GParted

and finally Fixparts

There are even more embedded links for those delving deeper into this topic

Anyone using Linux or dual booting Windoze will find something useful

Thanks Rod! Wink
