What is a GPT disk?

The GUID Partition Table (GPT) was introduced as part of the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) initiative. GPT provides a more flexible mechanism for partitioning disks than the older Master Boot Record (MBR) partitioning scheme that has been common lớn PCs.

A partition is a contiguous space of storage on a physical or logical disk that functions as though it were a physically separate disk. Partitions are seen by the system firmware và the installed operating systems. Access khổng lồ a partition is controlled by the system firmware before the system boots the operating system, and then by the operating system after it starts.

The GUID Partition Table (GPT) Scheme was implemented under Microsoft Windows XPhường. x64 edition, Windows Server 2003 (64-bit), Windows Server 2003 SP1 (all versions), Windows Vista, Windows 7+

In a nutshell, GPT Partition was developed khổng lồ get around known, MBR partition kích thước issues; the maximum form size for a MBR partiton is 2 Terabytes (TB). GPT partitions enable this limit to lớn be exceeded.

GUID Partition Table (GPT) partitions are also found in Mac OS X versions 10.4.6 và newer. All Intel-based Macs require a GPT partition on a boot volume, whether it be internal or external.

(or newer), 32-bit operating system, you may find your drive sầu is inaccessible and that Disk Management reports that the drive sầu has a GPT Protective Partition on it. The drive cannot be repartitioned và formatted in this state. This is because the internal or external hard disk was previously prepared on either a Windows or Macintosh computer with a GPT partition.

Normal Disk Management facilities will not overcome this issue. To prepare this drive, you will need to use the Windows diskpart command-line utility. The following procedure provides the steps for cleaning a GPT Protective sầu Partition from a hard disk drive sầu connected lớn an existing Windows XP (or newer), 32-bit Operating System.
