GPT on 2tb drive

Hi everyone.  I would like to install Mythbuntu 12.04 on My Book Essential 2TB external harddrive.  I have read many articles and post concerning GPT.  I would like to know if the harddrive is gpt compatible?  My system is Inspiron 560.  Any assistance will be appreciated.  sister6091:cry:


You can initialize any disk drive as GPT as long as you have the required utilities or Operating System. However, you may need to perform a full erase (Write zeros) before you can initialize the unit as GPT.
