After installing Windows, ArcaOS and Ubuntu Linux on a new computer - meanwhile all works fine - minilvm shows a warning at beginning:
"Disk 1 reports a corrupt partition table."  The extended partition/logial drives are not shown anymore.

The problem seemed to happen after installing the last OS.  The order of Installation was Windows-Windows-ArcaOS-ArcaOS-Ubuntu Linux. I have no other malfunction, Airboot and all OS work fine.

DFSEE shows the following:

Can I repair this so I can use minilvm at the future or should I use dfsee in the future instead?

Hi Martin,

How did you make the partitions minilvm or ?

My own setup  with Windows 10 and ArcaOS and Linux Mageia . Was to make partitions for all partitons with disc tool provided with ArcaOS. ArcaOS was installed last in my case. I am using Linux bootloader from Mageia to choose what OS to boot.

I think I can recall some issues when people were installing Ubuntu distros along Ecomstation/OS2 gave some issues in the past. But I have not been able to track it down in the this forum.

Yes, I made all partitioning with Minilvm. I did not use dfsee for partitioning, but I copied the two ArcaOS partitions from one place to another. But before, I created a third and fourth partition for ArcaOS (same size). After copying, I deleted the old two partitions, also with Minilvm. At this moment, Minilvm still worked. I assume that Ubuntu changed something.

I have contact with Jan van Wijk. But I will copy the whole HD to another new HD before doing my tests, so it will take same time. I will report here.
