I have not been paying attention to messages. The PM's pop up with a notice.
Update of grub does not update fstab.
I relie on gpt info from srs594/ Rod. He is the creator of gdisk. I converted one 160GB disk to gpt and it works just fine. I also did it on my 16GB flash drive just for grins. I do not see much difference with gpt. It is supposed to be a bit more reliable, but you cannot boot windows unless your have efi & win64. I have not tried reading my gpt disk from my XP as I have only Linux partitions on my gpt disks and use XP very little now.
You can send me a private message - PM. (not sure if you have to friend me first to get PMs to work. Several others have asked me to help on a thread & if available I am willing. Sometimes I run across them anyway, depending on how much I am on system.
I do not normally respond in PM, as I do not know all the answers and expect others to add or correct my reponses.
