How can i make a bootable disk with cfdisk on gpt label?


I want to install ArchLinux, but i have a problem. When i open cfdisk(gpt), there is no bootable option. I pressed b, but it doesn't work. How can i make my disk part bootable? (sory for my bad english)

In Linux you don't need to mark any partition bootable. It's something Microsoft invented for their boot-loaders.

To work with gpt disks, use parted or the gdisk suite - there is a cgdisk, which is equivalent to cfdisk.
