Note that ISOs produced with -hfsplus currently have partition 1
starting at LBA 1 as is prescribed for type 0xee.
If you want to test with partition start LBA 0 then create the
ISO without -hfsplus.

No need to hurry. I have a bug to hunt anyway.


The riddle is why i once associated HFS+ production with GPT
production. It happened in June 2012 when i discussed HFS+
with Vladimir. libisofs launchpad rev 1000.
3 days earlier, Vladimir wrote to me in german language that i
should make partion type 0xee
 "if GPT is present (if EFI or HFS+ is present). For GPT to work."

Possibly i took this as reason to hardcode HFS+ <=> GPT.
I will now carefully try to loosen that connection.

Have a nice day :)
