I've been trying to dual-boot dragonfly, windows and debian. However,
dragonfly's installer does not appear to see the partition I set up for it.
Below is my partition table for the disk I want to install dragonfly on
as reported by parted in debian:
Model: ATA ST1000DM003-1CH1 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: gpt
Number Start End Size File system Name
1 17.4kB 134MB 134MB Microsoft reserved partition
2 135MB 269GB 268GB ntfs Basic data partition
4 269GB 385GB 116GB ext4 j-deb
3 385GB 385GB 99.6MB fat32 efi
5 385GB 505GB 120GB ext4
6 505GB 612GB 107GB
I set up sdb6 for this and ran the dragonfly 4.4.1 installer.
All dragonfly reported when I tried to install on this disk (da1 in
< 0M - 953869M: EFI DPT >
No other partitions were available.
It detected all the partitons on my windows drive (msdos partition
table; sda/da0) just fine.
A cursory google shows that dragonfly supports GPT. So did I do
something wrong here or can I not install to a GPT-formatted drive?
