Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-03-10 17:01:08 EST
Description of problem:

gptsync synchronizes the legacy MBR with the real GPT partition
table.  It can either truncate or ignore partitions which cross the
2TB boundary.

gptsync - GPT partition table to MBR partition table synchronisation

Additional info:

The source for gptsync is part of the rEFIt project
(http://refit.sf.net).  Unfortunately this is not in Fedora, _and_
it's quite hard to build.

Note also that Debian have non-upstream patches to
gptsync which substantially enhance its functionality:
