Official partition table for advanced format 2 TB disk?

Post by lacix » Mon Jan 20, 2014 12:58 pm

Hi there,
I would like to use a 2 TB WD20EARS disk in my NWSP2. The WD20EARS is an advanced format disk, which reports "Sector Sizes: 512 bytes logical, 4096 bytes physical" to my operation system.
I use the "classic" version of the NWSP2, so I would need a partition table formatted with a MBR (not GPT).
Could someone please provide me with the original Lacie partition table for a 2 TB disk with advanced format.

Thanks in advance,
lacix

Dear Jocko,
thanks for the quick reply.
However, the partition table referred to in the wiki page is for a 1 TB disk and I assume it is one reporting "Sector Sizes: 512 bytes logical, 512 bytes physical", so no advanced format disk. So I will face disk alignment problems. Thats why I asked for an original 2 TB disk partition table. Perhaps someone might post it?

The partition sizes are not important, as long as they are 'big enough'. So you can use your favourite partition tool to create aligned partitions, as long as the partitions are not smaller than the ones specified in the wiki.

Is your sda9 large enough? The capsule is temporary stored there, I think.
