I had some fun formatting a Sun disk recently - disks with EFI labels

Sun might be more compliant than Apple. Apple do strange
things with their GPT disks. Block 1 is supposed to be a
dummy MBR, but Apple use it as a real MBR for Boot Camp.
I discovered that as soon as there is 1 active partition
in the MBR, a Windows disk appears in the EFI boot list.
Presumably "Win95" is a misnomer, as I can't imagine Windows 95 booting
Probably not, but I wonder!
By the way - what I'm up to now is CD-less installation
onto a Boot Camp partition using vmware-rawdiskCreator.
I think I've almost worked out how to do it. Then I can
install one OS onto a real partition (i.e., not on a
virtual disk) and continue to use OS X concurrently.
Do you know why Windows leaves 62 blocks between the MBR
and the first partition?
