Help!!! Unable to convert GPT disk!!!
I need to convert this hard drive to MBR. I'm trying to dual boot Windows and Linux and my Windows XP install disk won't even attempt to install anything on it (doesn't even see it). I have a Knoppix LiveCD that I can boot said machine with and fdisk -l shows that the partition type is EFI GPT. fdisk doesn't seem to want to do anything more than list this information. parted's man page doesn't seem to say anything about converting to MBR. I've got a windows machine that I can mount the hard drive on (in an external enclosure). I tried using the windows utility diskpart to convert it to mbr, but it doesn't show the disk as being GPT, so it won't convert it.
What exactly does EFI GPT mean anyway? And how can I convert this beast to MBR?
Thanks everyone in advance!
