I don't know that I will actually use it, but I have wanted to see if I could get this working for some time now. I had tried before after finding a blog post of someone else who had gotten this to work. But I failed at that time since I didn't understand that gdisk's 8300 was actually representative of a type GUID.

I have an SSD in my machine that is currently blank while I try to figure out what to use it for. So I think I will leave this enabled for a bit and see how it goes. So far so good.

Unfortunately, the firmware only allows for up to 3 hours before the IRST kicks in. You say that 24 hours is invalid, but does adjustment with your patch allow you to go over the bios listed max at all?

PS D'oh, I got the anti-spam question wrong...
