Yo Brink, thanks for the article.
Tell me though, do you know if it's possible or not to have Windows 7 64 install and boot on MBR and then if I have say 300GB unallocated on the same disk, partition that unallocated space as GPT but keep my first Windows partition as MBR? I have a laptop that I need to do this on for certain purposes that only support GPT. The laptop does not have UEFI.
Actually, just read this, interesting: Booting from GPT
See towards the bottom in the Windows section. Looks like I might need to create a Hybrid MBR or DUET system, sounds painful but I think I'm going to give it a go.
