Clear msftres and other GPT 'flags' set by GNU Parted
Authored by: PizzaCake on Oct 24, '09 08:49:01AM

Using gparted 0.4.4 to create a FAT 32 partition I ended up with the dreaded microsoft reserved partition. Diskutil simply gave up and crashed. Gdisk 0.5 fixed it :) I first tried changing the type of the partition but this was not enough, the partitions were still messed up. After deleting the troublesome 'reserved' partition and rebooting all prior problems were fixed including gpt and mbr syncing as verified with refit.

Note gdisk is a lot easier to use now as it asks which which partition rather than entering sector numbers.

Many thanks to the author.
