Are GPT and LVM a good combination for this system? 2 TB hdd
I just bough a new 2 TB hard disk and I'm wondering, would it be a very wild idea to use GPT instead of MBR? Is there any real advantage? (my BIOS is a regular one, not a UEFI)
And the second part is that I'd like to try some distributions now that I have plenty of space. (I use Ubuntu). Is using LVM a good idea for this? I read that using LVM you can resize your partitions on the fly, and I want to know more about this.
Let's suppose I use the following partitioning method with the old MBR partition table:
How would that be with GPT + LVM?
sda1 ext4 / 30 GB
sda2 ext4 /home 1925 GB
Would it be possible to resize sda2 whenever I want (even if it has many GB in use but a few unused) to create other partitions that I'd use with other distributions (Arch, Gentoo, Debian, Ututo)? And if I'm tired of them, give the GBs back to sda2?
Any advice and suggestion is accepted, thank you very much in advance!
