Default GPT?

Hi there
I tried to install FreeBSD, but when I come to the partition sector it told me that I have a GPT table but I have not, is a MBR disc. It only see my hardrive and not my partitions that I have to my Windows 7. I have a free space for FreeBSD of 100GB.

I want to dual boot FreeBSD with my Windows 7.

I tried to install Slackware and that was not any problem. So something are very strange here.

When you get to the partitioning section, do you see free space? You can always choose BSD label. (I've only done it with Linux distributions on a disk, and the way it has worked is that I would create the free space first, then highlight the disk, e.g., ada0, click create, and it would create a partition, where I could choose the size. I then click create again, and can create mountpoints.)

I don't know if that's any help, though, I have not tried sharing a drive with Windows.

I think perhaps it matters that the disk are on 1 TB and my 100GB free space for FreeBSD are the last space on the disc.

Your disk could be GPT formatted with a proctective MBR. This combination is used so that an disk partitioning tool that only understands MBR formatted disks will not disrupt the GPT partitions.

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr.../gg463525.aspx and
the beginning of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GUID_Partition_Table
