BSDRich said:I've tried to install 7.2 and 8.0 and when I try to write the label by pressing "w" it pops up this message. What does it mean and what's going wrong?
It can, the problem is that sysinstall can't. One can install FreeBSD to a GPT disk, but it takes extra effort and some manual steps.BSDRich said:"Is/was your disk GPT partitioned?"
Mine may have been. It was a long time ago so I can't remember. Why, can't FreeBSD recognize and deal with GPT?

What doesn't necessarily make much sens is why the GPT is so hard to blow away at times.
