Dear All Gurus,

I installed Fedora 17 into a GPT hard drive, E320 can't boot. Howerver, if I installed it into MBR drive, E320 boots it no problem. Is E320 really can't boot GPT drive?

The BIOS version is 1.17

Best
Isaac

Are you booting via UEFI or BIOS mode?

Both UEFI and BIOS (Legacy) mode failed.

Odd. What was your GPT partitioning setup like? When you were booting via UEFI, did you make sure you had both the actual UEFI boot partition and a BIOS partition?
