FAT32 partitions detected as type 0x1b
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
FAT32 partitions are detected as type 0x1b on the Disk Druid screen when
doing a graphical install.
The problem with this is that apparently the LILO configuration screen
doesn't recognize this partition and thus it is impossible to correctly
configure LILO from within the installer to dual-boot; this must be done
manually after the install.
I made this a high severity/priority for this reason; newbies may wonder
what happened to their Windows 9x when they reboot.
Brock please reproduce.
Verified ... partitions of type 0x1b (Hidden Win95 FAT32) show up in disk druid
with the "0x1b" label, not the "Win95 FAT32" label ... further, ddruid does not
allow a mount point to be chosen for partitions of this type (so a partitionless
install cannot happen, or you can't even assign it a mount point under a regular
linux install either) ... thanks for your report!
verified fix in internal test tree (qa1206.0 w/updates disk) ...
with current fixed internal version, the user is able to assign partitions of
type 1b to non-root values ...
