Topic: Partition table silently fails to be created
I have 2 brand new 4TB Western Digital Reds that I'm unable to create partition tables on. I do the standard device > create partition table > gpt > apply, and gparted acts like it is doing things, but just silently fails to create a partition table. Both disks have the error 'unrecognised disk label'. I've tried to create partition tables with parted as well, and mklabel also silently fails. Any suggestions?
