Let’s highlight the major points According to the official Microsoft documentation all its OSs starting from Windows Server 2003 SP1 support GPT volumes as the data disks.
However, only 64-bit Windows versions installed on the UEFI motherboards are able to boot from a GPT volume. There are several hacks that allow to boot Windows 7/8 x64 in BIOS firmware from a GPT disk.
But what if your Oracle database is running 24/7 and you cannot easily stop listener service.
Then you cannot truncate file using mv or rm commands because Oracle will continue writing to that file and will not free up disk space.
In a standard Windows installation to an MBR disk, only 2 TB are available, the rest space stays unallocated.
You could stop listener service process, move or remove file and start service again.Today let’s dwell on how to install any modern Windows version (including Windows 7 and Windows 8) to a GPT hard disk on a PC using BIOS firmware (without UEFI support).The necessity to pull such trick arised when trying to install Windows Server 2008 R2 to HP DL380 G8 server (HP DL servers do not support EFI yet) with the size of the local array (RAID 5) over 4 TB.The GIT repo URL, branch and commit id can be found in the Processor_SDK_Linux_U-Boot_Release_Notes A note about device trees.With this LCPD release all boards are required to use a device tree to boot.
