A technician is attempting to create multiple partitions on a hard disk that is using the boot sector standard that supports a maximum partition size of 2TB. What is the maximum number of primary partitions allowed per hard drive?
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Master boot record (MBR) is the boot sector standard that supports a maximum primary partition of 2TB. MBR allows four primary partitions per drive. The globally unique identifier (GUID) partition table standard (GPT) can support enormous partitions with a theoretical maximum of 9.4ZB (9.4 x 10 to the 24th bytes). GPT supports a maximum of 128 primary partitions per drive.
