Post subject:  New GPT partition type GUID for Linux data partition

There is a new GPT partition type GUID for the Linux data partition, so Linux and Windows data partition can be differentiated.
Quote:
Previously Linux used the same GUID for the data partitions as Windows. Linux never had a separate unique partition type GUID defined for its data partitions. This created problems when dual-booting Linux and Windows in UEFI-GPT setup. This new GUID was defined jointly by
GPT fdisk and GNU Parted developers. It is identified as type code 8300 in GPT fdisk.

Windows Basic data partition[2] EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7
Linux filesystem data[2] 0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4

Thanks very much for the tip Icecube, I'll check that out, and I should be able to update Partition Logic with new GUID(s) before the next release, which should be pretty soon now..

(also, I'll reply to your post in the Visopsys forum shortly) 8-)

I've updated all the GPT GUIDs so they're current with the ones listed on the Wikipedia page you linked to. Those will be in the next Visopsys/Partition Logic release. Thanks again!
