problems with fdisk on 2TB HDD

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Will you be booting windows from this disk?  I believe win7 can read GPT but it cannot boot from a GPT formatted disk... I am not a win expert.  You will have no Linux issues booting to GPT with grub.  Not sure about syslinux but check the wiki.  If you can, I recommend formatting to GPT and partitioning with gdisk.  Remember that if you plan to boot off this disk using grub to create a 1 MB partition first (for grub bios) or a 200 MB partition first (grub efi). graysky https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=21060 2012-10-10T23:40:40Z (HowTos)
