 i'm sending this email for Kerim as advised by Mrfai. No answer

needed :)

 i have an issue when trying to create a single root partition

on a raid5 array of 3.7TB

 here's the disk_config : 


disk_config disk1 disklabel:gpt-bios bootable:1 fstabkey:uuid

 primary /

100% ext4 rw,noatime,errors=remount-ro
 primary swap 32G swap sw

 when the

system boot, it fails to boot from the mbr and drops to grub rescue.

running rescue command like insmod linux fails with an error message which

i didn't wrote sorry, but it's easily reproducible i suppose.

 i worked

around the issue by creating more partitions not exceeding 2TB


available for more information if needed.
