GPT Partition Table Curropt by latest revision!
« on: May 10, 2013, 09:13:14 AM »
I have occasionally run into this severe problem which disables my ability to boot/install ANY bootloader and forces me to muck around with things I shouldn't to get it working, anyway, I installed 2.2svn-r2203 and here is my log output:

So my partition table was for my ADATA 128GB SSD,

         Starting       Ending
 #: id  cyl  hd sec -  cyl  hd sec [     start -       size]

 but after failing to boot (Operating System Not Found) and using a USB boot it's,

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, my temporary fix is to do this,

Disk: /dev/rdisk0   geometry: 15566/255/63 [250069680 sectors]
Offset: 0   Signature: 0xAA55
         Starting       Ending

 3: 00    0   0   0 -    0   0   0 [         0 -          0] unused     
 4: 00    0   0   0 -    0   0   0 [         0 -          0] unused   

I'm going to assume this is very unsafe but I can't even boot off the secondary drive either, when it happens to one drive, it happens to both.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
