9 A partition table is a partition table, whatever is the tool you use to
10 handle it. I didn't met your problem with size limitation but lost
11 partition table and changed partitions tables on drives. For this, i
12 used different tools, even proprietary ones, and never had conflict,
13 except with Vista special partition (that has a bigger size than the
14 actual disk size xD )
16 My two cents,
