Error about GPT and EFI during Centos installation
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 server with 4 x 2 TB hdd and during Centos 6.4 installation, after setting partition layout, I receive the following message:
You are using a GPT bootdisk on a non-EFI system. This may not work, depending on your BIOS's support for booting from GPT disks.
I read that this could be related to setting a partition bigger than 2 TB, and in fact I set a 5 TB partition, because I need to use it as a backup storage.
Except for that, everything worked fine: the installation has completed successfully, the system boots without any problem, and the partition seems correctly recognized with 5 TB of space by "df" command.
The only anomalies are that I get these errors while booting the system:
ERST: Failed to get Error Log Address Range
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 48
So my questions are: are the above problems serious or I can ignore them?
Can I go ahead and use this server or I could face problems in the future?
Looking at this error-
So I don't know if this disk is the right one.
Other members here that are running CentOS and have more experience would know-
It is my hope that they will chime in-
Linux kernel (>2.6.30?)can boot both UEFI and classic BIOS from GPT.
