Question cant create raid base gpt partition with Gparted


I add 4 samsung 1 TB hard disk drive to one volume raid0 in "Intel Rapid Storage Technology"; then boot the system with Gparted live USB (gparted-live-0.11.0-7).

Gparted find the volume at /dev/mapper/isw_dbiefegjia_Volume0 and can create partitions with "msdos" disk label; but it is not possible to create partition under "gpt" disk label. The reported error from gparted is:

"no such device or adress while trying to determine filesystem size"
I try to do it with parted, following the instruction "Linux Creating a Partition Size Larger Than 2TB".

There was no error; I can set the disk label to "gpt" and create partition larger than 2TB and mount it. But after restarting the partition disappears.

There is no /dev/mapper/isw_dbiefegjia_Volume0p1 file after restarting.

any idea?
