Description Arvin Schnell 2022-05-04 09:54:08 UTC
Using YaST it is possible to set the partition id of a primary
partition on MS-DOS to the partition id of an extended partition
(0x0f). The system ends up with a broken partition table since
the partition does not have a extended boot record.

The option should be removed from the menu.
