PARTITION_TYPE (Enums)
 
.
Summary
Partition types (for MBR partition style)

C# Definition:

public enum PARTITION_TYPE : byte
{
    PARTITION_ENTRY_UNUSED = 0x00, // Entry unused
    PARTITION_FAT_12 = 0x01, // 12-bit FAT entries
    PARTITION_XENIX_1 = 0x02, // Xenix
    PARTITION_XENIX_2 = 0x03, // Xenix
    PARTITION_FAT_16 = 0x04, // 16-bit FAT entries
    PARTITION_EXTENDED = 0x05, // Extended partition entry
    PARTITION_HUGE = 0x06, // Huge partition MS-DOS V4
    PARTITION_IFS = 0x07, // IFS Partition
    PARTITION_OS2BOOTMGR = 0x0A, // OS/2 Boot Manager/OPUS/Coherent swap
    PARTITION_FAT32 = 0x0B, // FAT32
    PARTITION_FAT32_XINT13 = 0x0C, // FAT32 using extended int13 services
    PARTITION_XINT13 = 0x0E, // Win95 partition using extended int13 services
    PARTITION_XINT13_EXTENDED = 0x0F, // Same as type 5 but uses extended int13 services
    PARTITION_PREP = 0x41, // PowerPC Reference Platform (PReP) Boot Partition
    PARTITION_LDM = 0x42, // Logical Disk Manager partition
    PARTITION_UNIX = 0x63, // Unix
    VALID_NTFT = 0xC0, // NTFT uses high order bits
    PARTITION_NTFT = 0x80,  // NTFT partition
    PARTITION_LINUX_SWAP = 0x82, //An ext2/ext3/ext4 swap partition
    PARTITION_LINUX_NATIVE = 0x83 //An ext2/ext3/ext4 native partition
}

VB Definition:

Notes:

These values where found in Windows 10 WinIoCtl.h except for the linux ones which were taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partition_type
