hrev44645, gcc2. I'm attaching a fresh VirtualBox 3 TB GPT disk containing a single unformatted partition. Format the partition using 'mkfs' or 'mkdos', and notice its mountable size being only 881.69 GiB.

It seems there is also a problem while partitioning smaller disk.

On a fresh 8 Go disk under Virtual Box, using ISO hrevr1alpha4-44606, i create an Intel partition map, then a 8 Go partition. After formating using BFS and installing Haiku, i was unable to boot. After rebooting with the ISO again, i found that the partition was only 2 Go large with 6 Go of free space.

Well, i was not able to reproduce it on a different virtual machine (but dynamic size drive instead of a fix one). Strange, because i have tried two times with the previous machine.
