Unfortunately all of them are shown as FAT.
In fact the problem is more complex, other partition are shown as windows
partition but ONLY qnx partition
are also shown as windows + FAT because windows seem to find out some FAT
info on these qnx partitions.
So far only type 79 is not shown as a windows partition but it’s shown as a
All the others (linux/bsd/novell) are shown as windows partitions but only
(77/78) QNX partitions have data
that leads windows to think they’re FAT.
Most of the time they’re shown as ‘Healthy’ but if data goes over some place
on this parition it switch to non-healthy
and win2k try to fix them at boot time.
Then some data is lost on the QNX partition.

Hmm. I did not notice that. Anyway, you could try to use one of partitions
Windows surely knows (and does not support) so it won’t try to fix it.
would be a good choice. (type 7 I think).

I found some serious problem with w2k and qnx.
77 and 78 partition are shown as FAT partition in w2k,
79 is shown as FREE partition.
So the major problem is only with 77/78 partitions (QNX4).
The problems starts when these 77/78 partitions becomes almost full,
w2k stops finding them as healthy FAT partitions and actually start
to fix them when you boot w2k.
The result is that some data is changed/lost on your 77/78 partitions.
I can’t believe how w2k can shows non-dos/win partitions as FAT
I’m currently trying to find out partition number that are NOT shown as
partition by w2k, as far as i tested i only found 79 who shows as FREE.
If you know how to avoid that major problem or if you know partition
that doesn’t show as FAT partition in w2k please tell…
