I have a CentOS 7 Virtual Machine (VM). I add a new disk to a VM with VMware workstation. Then on the guest CentOS VM, I run the fdisk command, to start adding the partitions that I want. After I specify p to add a primary partition, I see output like follows:
Partition number (1-4): 1 First cylinder (1-47536, default 1): Using default value 1 Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1-47536, default 47536): Using default value 47536
My question relates to the 1st line of italic text above. Why does it say (1-4)? Are you not allowed to have more than 4 partitions on a single disk?
