I am following the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive
4) Create one partition occupying all the space on the drive:
(parted) mkpart primary 0 0
5) Check that the results are correct:
However when I do this I get:
$sudo parted /dev/sda GNU Parted 3.2 Using /dev/sda Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands. (parted) mklabel gpt (parted) unit GB (parted) mkpart primary 0 0 (parted) print Model: ATA Some SSD (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 240GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt Disk Flags: Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 1 0.00GB 0.00GB 0.00GB primary
The Start and End of 0GB and Size of 0GB is making me think this isn't correct. I would have thought the size should have been 240GB (or close to it). Are these instructions correct? If not, what is the correct way to make a single partition that covers the entire disk?
