I have a confession to make…

On the advice of another comment in this thread, I didn’t use
for those experiments. Instead, I used
to avoid any possible alpha/testing anomalies.
I neglected to say that in my earlier report. I’m sorry for any confusion it has caused!
This afternoon, I plan to make a comprehensive set of tests:
(a) “as-is” no messing with the partition tables at all; just dd directly to the USB stick.
(b) an automatically gdisk-built GPT table deleting partition 1 and leaving partition 2 unmodified except for setting as type EF00.
(c) an automatically gdisk-built GPT table based upon the original MBR table deleting partition 1 and leaving partition 2 unmodified except for setting as type EF00.
(d) a hand-built (using disk) GPT table with partition 1 having the same start/end as the partition 2 had in the original GPT table and type EF00, and no partition 2.
I plan to start with
because it’s the smallest (to minimizing time spend dd-ing) and has the fewest non-fully-supported features to confuse issues. In particular, this is not the firmware-9.4 I used above.
I’ll report back as soon as I have some results.
Thanks for all the help!
