GUID - GPT Disk tutorials.

  • In computer hardware GUID Partition Table (GPT), is a standard layout of Partition table on a physical hard disk.

  • It is a part of UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) standard. It is Intelís proposed replacement for PC BIOS.

  • You can implement GPT based disk in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

  • You cannot use GPT partition on Removable disk.

  • GPT support maximum 128 partitions per disk.

  • Maximum disk volume size is 18 Exabyte. Each Exabyte is equal to one quintillion that is 10 raised to 18 bytes. You can say 1 Exabyte equals one billion gigabytes or you can also say 1 Exabyte equals one Million Terabytes.

  • As of now we donít have hardware or disk with such a large volume.

  • GUID GPT disk check for Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) duplicates and protect GPT disk.


Note:- When you partition disk using GPT , it create 3 partitions for windows.






EFI System Partition (ESP)

100 MB

The first Partition contains the boot manager, the files required in booting an operating system. It contain tools that run before an operating system boot, or the files that the boot manager must access before operating a system boot.


The ESP must be the first partition on the disk.


Microsoft Reserved (MSR)

128 MB

128 MB partition is reserved for Windows components.

This partition is hidden in Disk Management, and does not receive a drive letter.


It is used when you convert a basic GPT disk to dynamic disk.


Operating System (OS)

Remaining disk

This partition contains the Operating System and other folders for program. Most people usually looks at it as C : drive.
