FIX ERROR – fdisk: DOS partition table format cannot be used on drives for volumes larger than 2199023255040 bytes for 512-byte sectors

When trying to create a partition with the "fdisk" utility, 2 or more TB in size, the following message appears:

The size of this disk is 2 TiB (2199023255552 bytes). DOS partition table format cannot be used on drives for volumes larger than 2199023255040 bytes for 512-byte sectors. Use GUID partition table format (GPT).

 

Solution:

Add the "gpt" label on the new disk

parted /dev/nvme2n1

 

Where "nvme2n1" – is your disk

 

Add the label:

mklabel gpt

 

Checking:

print

 

 

Then we return to fdisk and create the desired partition. The section can also be created in the "parted" utility

 

Let’s create a file system, for this we copy the full path of the created partition

 

And we create a file system, in this example it’s ext4:

mkfs.ext4 /dev/nvme2n1p1
