Re: Primary vs Logical Partitions?
Lea Gris spake thusly :
James Taji a écrit :
Not exactly, an extended partition IS a primary partition. 1 of the 4
primary partitions can be an extended partition.ing a partition table
Exactly, and, if you intend on using a whole disk, there is no real need
in adding partitions at all. Just create the filesystem on the root

Avoiding a partition table wil save a few blocks and will save
boundaries limitations affecting partition start and end.
Hey! Thanks for that. :)
