in the grub4dos console.
It mentions flags and id type??
Could a flag of 0x80 mark it active?
The point is that there is no need to have it active if grub4dos is used to boot the dos.
It is possible that *something* else remains to be fixed, there was recently an issue with partition ID :
quick jump to the relevant posts:
Later grub4dos versions should have been patched to use "--in-situ=FLAGS_AND_ID" (but haven't had the occasion to test).
BTW, both Tinybit and YaYa did not provide a valid example, so how to actually use the feature is unclear (at least to me).
Hey, yaya accepted the proposal of --in-situ=FLAGS_AND_ID. The original FLAGS is still in the lower byte, and the higher byte is used for partition ID.
Yaya (via Google Translate):
The function map increments the --in-situ=FLAGS_AND_ID parameter.
The low byte is FLAGS, 0/1=3 active partition flags after clearing the partition table/empty partition table last 3 items, default 0.
The high byte is the partition ID, specified with 0xnnnn.
