GPT Surgeon

Registered 2010-09-09 by SteelPangolin

Command-line tool for repairing corruption of GPT partition labels on dual-boot Mac/Windows systems.

Developed to fix issues caused by utilities for mounting HFS+-formatted partitions on GPT-partitioned drives in Windows. Generally this manifests as the Apple Disk Utility error "invalid BS_jmpBoot in boot block: 000000". See the below blog posts for more info.
