Master boot record/global unique identifer, partition table hybrid disk that includes GPT bootstrap code

Wayne, Inc., Incheon, Korea, has been assigned a patent (11,314,523) developed by Bak, Seongbin, Incheon, Korea, for a master boot record (MBR)/global unique identifer, GUID) partition table (GPT) hybrid disk that includes GPT bootstrap code.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “The present invention relates to a booting disk including a master boot record (MBR) stored in a first region and a globally unique identifier (GUID) partition table, GPT) stored in a second region, wherein the booting disk has a hybrid MBR partition structure in which an MBR partition used by the MBR and a GPT partition used by the GPT are mixed. The GPT partition may include an operating system (OS) partition configured to store an OS and a GPT storage partition configured to store data, the MBR partition may include a GPT protective partition configured to protect the GPT partition and an MBR storage partition configured to store data, the GPT storage partition and the MBR storage partition may be the same the same starting address and size, a starting address of the GPT protective partition may be a logical block addressing (LBA) #1 of the booting disk, and a partition size thereof is zero.

The patent application was filed on October 18, 2018 (16/959,389).
