Partition type oddity on my SSD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got a Crucial M4 128GB SSD attached to an AUS P8Z68V-Pro/GEN3 motherboard on a SATA3 port. According to DISKPART, the partition type of the only partition on the disk, is 0E, which according to Microsoft is FAT 16 bit, Win95 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/69912). The file system for that partition is NTFS and it contains Windows 7 x64 and my program files.

Some potentially helpful background info: My system originally came with a different SSD in it with Windows 7 X64 installed on it. I upgraded to this current SSD to get more space and to utilize the SATA3 capabilities of my board. I cloned the old SSD to the current one using True Image Home 2012 and in that process, I increased the size of the partition to max out the new SSD's partition size (~128GB vs ~80GB on the old SSD).

My system works fine, is very fast and the SSD benchmarks very well, so I am not tempted to do anything drastic about it but I was wondering if anyone can shed any light on why this is?

I was actually in the same exact situation before, upgraded SSD and just cloning my old one to the new one. It most definitely stemmed from that and it irked me for some reason so I just backed up whatever I needed and reinstalled Win 7. Although the SSD still performed as it should, I didn't like feeling it was hindered in any possible way even if it could've been a simple display bug.

Where things get really strange is I installed my old SSD (Intel 320 80GB) back into my PC and booted from it. The partition type on it is 01, which seems to be FAT12. Very odd.
