BootStar Dummies

Previous  Next

Only available in profi mode and activated by default!

 

During booting entries are copied from the internal BootStar partition table to the master boot record partition table. The remaining entries of the master boot record partition table are filled with so-called "BootStar Dummy" entries.

 

Other partitioners read the dummy entries as invalid values. This prevents for the most part that unauthorized or inexperienced users apply other partitioners while the bootmanager BootStar is installed.

 

Operating systems read the "BootStar Dummy" entries like normal partitions.

 

If you do not wish the effect of the "BootStar Dummy" entries you can deactivate this via the command line option. (To protect inexperienced users, this is only possible via the command line option.)

 

Be aware that other partitioners now have unprotected access to the partition table.
