One of the users that we were helping on the pre-release forum could not

You're asking if the openSUSE kernel has GPT support?

I has for a while I'm pretty sure. Maybe even the 11.1 kernel.

What makes you think it doesn't?

Or are you asking if the yast partition module supports them? I don't
know about that.

I have an external sata2 2T drive that works fine in 11.2

Here's the link to Bugzilla:

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=617288

Out of curiosity, I just added myself to the cc list, but the bugzilla
is just a couple weeks old and people appear to be looking at it, so
the process seems to be going fine.

fyi: You imply your 2TB drive has a GPT (GUID Partition Table). I did
not think WIndows Vista supported GPT on boot drives. Has that
changed with Win 7 to do so?

Thanks
Greg

Apparently. This not my drive.

Check out this link:

In addition, the following instructions from Novell for SLED/SLES 11
provide instructions to boot to shell and execute /efi/boot/elilo.efi
from removable media.

Here's the link:

I will also cc to myself. I'm curious about the outcome.
