The article refers to a different issue, but explains what you are looking
"I strongly suggest that you practice on a USB thumb drive before you
risk your real partition table !"
I used it. You do not need a PC with EFI support, however, your kernel must
have " EFI GUID partition table support" compiled in. And you will need GPT (
GUID partition tables ).
