This document represents a proposed Change. As part of the Changes
process, proposals are publicly announced in order to receive
community feedback. This proposal will only be implemented if approved
by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee.
== Summary ==
This Change makes it so that Fedora Linux systems installed on legacy
x86 BIOS systems will get GPT partitioning by default instead of
legacy MBR partitioning. This makes x86 BIOS installs more similar to
x86 UEFI installs.

== Detailed Description ==
Once implemented, Anaconda will create a GPT disk table on
non-partitioned disks or when the disk is being completely reset when
Fedora x86 install/live media is booted in BIOS mode.
Fedora Server WG discussed the proposal and insists that the proposal be deferred until
Anaconda can install software raid on biosboot systems with GPT (see
- at least for Fedora Server where software raid is a common use.
The issue is known to all server WG members at least since F32 and is mentioned in the
server user documentation.
A hybrid boot configuration may be useful for cloud because the same image is to be used
for different runtime environments. For physical servers it is irrelevant and for VMs in
a libvirt virtualization it is completely pointless. It would only introduce an additional
potential source of errors for Fedora servers, without any benefit at all.
