 When the (long) entire thread is read, it eventually becomes apparent that the
OP switched back and forth between GPT and MBR.

The initial thread post was not relevant to the purpose of my post, which was
intended to clarify meaning of the thread post I replied to standing alone.
Critical in my post is it was addressing exclusively the content of the replied
to post. I wasn't writing exclusively for the benefit the OP or thread readers.
On the contrary, I was writing primarily to the mailing list archive, for those
finding it via web search and trying to understand it entirely based on what it
contained.
