How to view an EFI GPT partition in Linux


Disk /dev/sda: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes
256 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38761 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16128 * 512 = 8257536 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1       38762   312571223+  ee  EFI GPT

I was wondering why I couldn't access the above, it was a Windows 7 system.

Solution - To view it you need to use parted and you can then mount the devices as normal.


parted /dev/sda print

Disk /dev/sda: 320GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Number  Start   End    Size    File system  Name                          Flags 
 1      1049kB  211MB  210MB   fat32        EFI system partition          boot  
 2      211MB   345MB  134MB                Microsoft reserved partition  msftres
 3      345MB   128GB  128GB   ntfs         Basic data partition                
 4      128GB   293GB  165GB   ntfs         Basic data partition                
 5      293GB   320GB  26.8GB  ntfs         Basic data partition          hidden

Information: Don't forget to update /etc/fstab, if necessary.

ntsf-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3
