Re: Help Regarding - fdisk



Gpt refers to the type of disklabel not the boot record (MBR- master boot
record). Fdisk uses the mdsos disklabel.

At any rate mark is right as I already mentioned, parted will work no
matter what.  I have seen 2TB drives for which fdisk doesn't work due to
manufacturing variances etc.
