Does anyone knows if (sata)disks bigger as 2T are supported by the Lime?

Just an FYI:

Linux does not require partitions.  If you only want one
partition anyway and don't care whether other OSes can
handle an unpartitioned disk, simply use the whole disk,
i.e. /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1.  No need to recompile
the kernel and search for the fancy new partitiong tools
with support for GPT or EFI.

MBR

flobber> Yes, that's right, Linux does not care as long as it's a working block device. And you can also avoid problems with block alignment, because newer disks use internally bigger sectors than 512B.
