Error when trying to create new partition on 4TB extenal disk
Open, Needs TriagePublic


When trying to create a new partition on an external hard drive, Disks fails and gives me an obscure error message. I tried a variety of settings (ext4, ntfs, with and without LUKS) so I don't think it's related to any specific configuration.

4TB disks/partitions can not be supported, unless we switch from BIOS to UEFI with GPT support, or adding GPT support to the Librem's BIOS by other means.

Partitioning the large disk into smaller partitions of sizes below 2TB might work though.
