Regarding unsupported hardware I don't have any concerns with that - Lenovo T430 is well known to support different Linux distributions out there.You may not be concerned about your hardware, but you are already experiencing a compatibility issue. Perhaps your laptop will support Ubuntu and Fedora, and perhaps RHEL 6, but I doubt it will run with the Oracle Linux UEK kernel.
Not sure if you by chance forgot to mention the answer to my question which was - what is the Linux rollout which does support GPT partition?I was only trying to save you from running into a brick wall, assuming you are not a master of Linux Kung Fu. ;-)
Thanks, man, now you are talking :)
No, I am an par with Kung Fu, even Djiu Djitsu ), though I used to always come up with my own kernel...
Why not VM? Because I got myself a good laptop at last!
On a serious - if I am not online the VM won't do no good, correct?
