You can't install centos (or redhat) over a gpt partition (unless
itanium platform) and there is a big chance your bios won't boot such
installation. I came with 2 solutions: if disk access performance
isn't important (as for backup), I do software raid; or I install two
little raid1 disks for the OS and then I use GPT or LVM on the
multi-tera raid of big disks.
