Hey everyone, I know this is an old post, but this is probably the most relevant one. currently, I have Windows xp dual booting with ubuntu 12.10, and I now wanna install Windows 8. I have absolutely no clue if my system is gpt or EFI or anything... so im basically a n00b
But I did run this line of code - "sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print"
And the result -
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 15181s 92162047s 92146867s extended lba
5 15183s 51828303s 51813121s logical ntfs
6 51828736s 87971839s 36143104s logical ext4
7 87973888s 92162047s 4188160s logical linux-swap(v1)
2 92162048s 195366911s 103204864s primary ntfs boot
Hope that helps.
