#12410 closed bug (fixed)

GPT add-on doesn't write protective MBR on GPT init.

Reported by: kallisti5 Owned by: axeld
Priority: low Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Partitioning Systems/GPT Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


While GPT now works, it doesn't write out the protective MBR. Not a *huge* issue, but something we should investigate long-term.

GPT disk created under Haiku, edited in gdisk:

$ gdisk test-gpt.img 
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.0

Partition table scan:
  MBR: not present
  BSD: not present
  APM: not present
  GPT: present

Found valid GPT with corrupt MBR; using GPT and will write new
protective MBR on save.

Command (? for help): p
