MBR vs GPT partitioning

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Jul 30, 2009.

  1. MBR partitioning won't handle hard drives larger than 2TB (or is that 2TiB)?
    Beyond that, you'll have to move to GPT. Is your OS ready?

    Ditto. In fact the last MS OS I installed will only boot from a GPT
    partition.
