    Linux VM Mounting GPT partitions - Solved

    Hi there

    I know a load of you run Linux VM's - and you *might* have wondered how to mount GPT partitions. (Works too on Linux HOSTS)

    The standard Linux fdisk -l command doesn't list the partitions properly for GPT partitions. What you need to do is use the parted command (as root --su / sudo).

    You'll then get a list of partitions 1,2,3 etc. So to mount say 2nd partition you have to mount /dev/sdb2.

    Screenshot enclosed.

    Hope this helps some 'nixers here.
