OK, first are you using 32bit or 64bit Peppermint 5 ?

If I were you (unless you understand the requirements of GPT and EFI) I'd ditch the GPT partition table in favour of an MSDOS style partition table .. then partition the drive so you don't have a single partition larger than 2TB.
(such as 1x1TB mounted as / and 1x2TB mounted as /home)

If you're not sure how to do this .. just ask.

Its a 64 bit system. 

How would I go about that process?

Switched to Mint 17.1 and have had no issues.  Wish Peppermint 5 had worked out but had to put a stop to the time drain.  Many thanks to all for the help.

Hi Peanuts, sorry Peppermint Five didn't work out for you  :'(.  Good luck with Linux Mint 17.1, (nice distro).  Come back and see us in a month or so.  Peppermint Six should be out by then  ;).
