Number of bytes written to boot sector was too long, 446 instead of 440

That 446 number is accurate -- that is how much room is available in
the boot sector. After that 446 there are 64 bytes for the partition
table and then two ID bytes (55 AA). In many boot sectors that I have
seen, the end of that 446 space is usually several zeroes -- my current
MBR has fifteen of them before the start of the partition table . . .
Nice to see you around Kevin.
It is accurate, but Major Supplier decided that right to write rules
(standards) belong to them, so from now on we have new number to remember,
440 bytes. If the trend continue in few years it will be easy to remember
what we can change:"Nothing, zilch, nichts, ništa, ничего, nada, ... "
