    How to check for GPT after install?


    I installed Win 8 64-bit fron an UEFI USB drive. How do I check if the drive is using GPT instead of MBR after installing?

    In disk management I see the following partitions:
    300 MB Healthy (Recovery Partition)
    99 MB Healthy (EFI System Partition)
    118 GB NTFS Healthy (Boot, Page file, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

    In diskpart I see the following partitions:
    Partition 1 Recovery 300 MB
    Partition 2 System 99 MB
    Partition 3 Reserved 128 MB
    Partition 4 Primary 118 GB
