Description

Setting active partition should be possible at any time, not only when creating the partition

We have the parameters panel framework pretty much there, maybe we could create a menu item named properties and have a params panel displayed for that. For this specific case we could display:

  • a switch for active partition
  • the size of the partition
  • partition type
  • a name field if supported
  • an icon to represent partition type or partitioning system type?

A problem I see with this would be, would you get the partitions information or the file systems information if the selected partition had a file system. Obvious for setting active partition bit you would want the partition, but I could see wanting to be able to set properties of the file system as well. Maybe a dialog with one on top of the other? I am curious as to how other people think about how this should be solved.

We could provide a menu item, enabled for inactive (and non-extended) primary partition.

So, everything would be self-contained in the Intel-partition-map.
