Which partition IDs are recognized ?

The following two sections contain all MBR and GPT partitions recognized by Boot-US.

1. MBR partitions

The type of MBR partitions is determined by the partition ID (1 byte). This value is stored in the partition table. Boot-US knows 80 partition IDs in total. The following table contains the list of these partition IDs with a short description of the corresponding partition type. Please note that some partition IDs cannot be assigned uniquely to a specific partition type. In other words several operating systems respective partitions use the same partition ID.

Some partitions are classified as hidden partition. The partition ID of the hidden partitions is different from their visible counterpart only by the hex number 10h which is added on the partition ID of the visible partition.

2. GPT partitions

The type of GPT partitions is determined by the GUID (16 bytes). The GUID is stored in the GPT partition table. The following table contains all GUIDs known by Boot-US. All GUIDs are documented officially. However due to their length the GUID values are rather unpractical. Much more practical are the IDs with a length of two bytes only. These short IDs were invented by Rod Smith (Linux project GPT fdisk). Boot-US uses the same short IDs for denoting the GPT partition types. The short ID is not stored in the GPT partition table.
