  • What's the meaning of Partition ID 0x27?

    And is Partition ID equal to System ID in DPT?

    Thank you very much!

  • Windows Recovery Environment use the partition to hidden from the disk and users do not accidentally delete files or corrupt the Windows Recovery Environment installation in anyway. Microsoft has defined a special partition type for this specific purpose. On MBR disks, the partition should be assigned partition type 0x27.

  • Dear Dainese,

        Thanks for your reply.

        If Microsoft has defined this value, why can't I find some corresponding document? Is it new for Vista?
