Hi OT,

What tool did you use to delete the Linux partitions?   What tool did you
use to recreate the Linux partitions ... and which gave you the partition
table inconsistent message?   Partition types:   0x5=dos extended
partition,  0xb=win95 fat32 partition  0xc=win95 fat32 partition(lba)
0xf=win95 extended partition(lba).  I think you probably have a mix of lba
and non lba partitions ... your fat32 primary is probably type 0xb ... but
... your fat32 logical is probably type 0xc.   This doesn't sound like a
problem to me ... just an inconsistency.    The partition records dont all
agree to use lba addressing but then  Linux really only uses lba
