gptsync - GPT partition table to MBR partition table synchronisation
[-q] [-t] device
reads the GPT partition table on device and synchronises the legacy
MBR partition table with the GPT partition table. The MBR partition table
can hold only 4 partitions.
Legacy bootloaders or operating systems that do not support GPT require an
MBR partition table; this is typically the case when using GRUB or LILO on
an Intel-based Apple machine.
Do not print any message, do not prompt to modify the MBR.
Truncate partitions starting or expending beyond 2 TiB (MBR limitation).
Default is to ignore such partitions.
