i've just spotted something - hdb3 (which was supposed to be an Extended partition in which the other Logical partitions existed) is showing as type '1f' whereas it should be type '5', shouldn't it?
If anyone could confirm this, that'd be great. Or suggest any way to change the type without formatting.
