Hard to use the native MBR formatting. Windows 8.1 didn't like that when trying to install a windows/UNIX dual boot

Doc, Amazon
23 October 2014
  • Summary: Once I got it installed seems to be a good drive. Comes formatted with a MBR and I needed a GPT and had to install it in my rack mount computer to be able to reformat it to GPT before I could use it in my laptop.
