I cant believe it. I dont know whats up with tose develtogs (in german:
Teulefszeug). After I do some a bios update (which was only a short
idea) now i am more confused than before....
Here it comes:
If you start a normal windows installation from CD it results in the
error "ntldr not found". Look into the fat bootsector:
78 heads 60 sektors... (before 255/63)
But now parted works as expected. After parted with mkpartfs fat32 the
fat bootsektor says:
255 heads 63 sektors... (before 78/60)

And now all works fine.

What the hell is going up? I dont know. Check the changelog from the
Patch EZ-Flash.
Fix default memory timing setting.

So nothing about which is releated to this problem....

So just let me thank you again for this tool. I think it was an error
from the bios....
