Installing Linux on GUID Partition Table (GPT) Disk
There are many advantages of GPT disks compared to Master Boot Record (MBR). MBR was introduced back in 1983, any technology being that old has a restriction in modern day computing, and MBR is no other. If you are interested, feel free to read up on the comparison between MBR and GPT, but I won’t be explaining the differences here. Instead, I want to explain the issues I had with GPT and how to resolve it.
I tried to dual boot my Windows ten desktop computer with a new Linux OS (Debian based). I started off with Elementary OS, but then found some of the bugs annoying and moved to Linux Mint. I had the same issues on both distribution, and I wasted a lot of time trying to fix it. So I would recommend not convert your hard disk to GPT and install Linux on it unless you know what you are doing.
