Hi all,

I am taking the decision to abandon at all Atari format partition on my Q60/Q40. I never had a special passion for mkpart/drvchk/drvlnk because I never fully understand the logic behind and this is my limit obviously .

New configuration I am approaching is to burn new ROM able to load SMSQ/E 3.36 directly without need of at least one atari partition and then have a single CF/SD (1 or 2 partition, doesn't care) to be able to load until 8 QXL.WIN and to have the freedom to share them with Q68. I think, that QXL.WIN on FAT32 could be considered the new standard, my humble opinion obviously....

Sadly, this change totally broke secondary partitions support for Atari
partitioned hard disks.
Just to make sure, this change broke things in 3.36 only, not in 3.35?
Yep. v3.35 works like a charm in this respect, and I actually reverted to
it for now...
For me the question is: Where is even the slightest practical benefit of
the new feature? Up to eight QLWA containers can be used without it.

I know it is hard to abandon code, after time was already invested, but
in this case I'd vote for it.

All the best
