How to install CentOs 5.8 on 3TB disk with RAID 1 on Hetzner EX 4S (10 TB) server?

user133916 asked:

I have installed centos 5.8 with Hetzner server rescue mode but its disk parttion table is in MSDOS formate which does not support more than 2 TB space of disk so i need to change the partition table into GPT formate.but enable to install os in Gpt formate how can i cange parttion table formate from dos to gpt.
Thanks in advance.

My answer:


You don’t. GPT support is available on EL6, but not on EL5.

So Hetzner should never have offered you this distribution.

To resolve the issue, install CentOS 6 instead.
