Hi Nicolas!

> # parted -s /dev/sda unit chs print free

Both produce the same result:

# parted -s /dev/sda unit TiB print
Error: /dev/sda: unrecognised disk label
# parted -s /dev/sda unit chs print free
Error: /dev/sda: unrecognised disk label

But shouldn't the disk label be set by setup-storage?
disk_config sda disklabel:msdos

With regards, Alex
