Hey, Erik, thanks for the link in your post with info about the "poor man's EFI" partition. Explains what had puzzled me a little about the original partition setup on the refurbished Think Pad T420 I bought about 18 months ago. It had been upgraded to win10 (which I got rid of), but it seems the hardware is too old to have EFI firmware. I had wondered about the ntfs "System" partition and what its use might have been. Now I know!
