    55Depending on the boot mode you use (UEFI or BIOS), mondo and mindi will have to behave accordingly.
    6 Depending of your choice, software configuration, you may also use GPT or MBR as a file table format. Refer to README.ia64 for more details on how mondo and mindi deal with that.
     6Depending of your choice, software configuration, you may also use GPT or MBR as a file table format.
     8The fdisk command used by mindi/mondo to determine all aspects related to the disc hasn't been adapted yet to handle GPT. Only the parted command is able to do it.
     10So a perl script called mr-parted2fdisk was written that will take as input all the order that mindi/mondo pass to fdisk, translate them to be given to parted and print the result in fdisk format. So this is a filter allowing fdisk replacement. It's only used for GPT based disks. On BIOS based disks, mr-parted2fdisk is a link to fdisk.
     12Thus mindi/mondorestore commands launched by root will pass all their call to mr-parted2fdisk on GPT based disks instead of the real fdisk, and be able to support the GPT format. It will call fdisk and parted for its work.
     14The script will setup everything correctly for you.
     16Note that mr-parted2fdisk supports currently only the -l and -s options as well as the commands p,n,d,w,t,a,q
     18On SLES 10, fdisk is not provided anymore. You'll have to rebuild the util-linux package by desactivating fdisk removal in the spec file.
    819In BIOS mode, mindi uses sylinux as boot loader for the restore media. As this doesn't work reliably yet with UEFI other strategies have been usd:
    920When using a distribution like RHEL6.x, then grub 0.97 will be used as boot loader for the restore media. During tests, we had success with grub-0.97-93.el6.x86_64 part of RHEL 6.6. In particular, the version provided with RHEL 6.5 doesn't boot !
