I'm running into an issue installing Windows 8 from a usb drive to GPT parted hard drives.
The first time I tried installing it wouldn't allow me to do so becuase the flash drive was formatted as NTFS. Apparently GPT works with FAT32 not NTFS.
So I reformatted to FAT32 and copied all the files back over except this wouldn't work either because my install.wim file is 9GB and FAT32 has a 4.32 GB limit on file sizes.
I'll add that I'd like not to wipe the drives because they were shipped with Windows 8 and recovery partitions. I am reinstalling over top becuase I've created a sysprepped image.
