I prefer C: as default for mass storage as well. Feels much more natural.

So as an alternative solution to always initializing the disk rom first would be to let nextor reclaim the A: drive on a machine where the disk drive was already initialized and reinitialize the disk drives afterwards. This is what the MMCSD is doing to have consistent drive mappings on all MSX computers (regardless of the location of the disk ROM).

Just my 2 cents: Marking more than 1 active partition is considered an illegal condition by many operating systems. This flag must be used *only* to flag which of the partitions must be booted. It has nothing to do with which partitions should be mounted or not.

If we wish to have some smooth interoperability, It's better to keep the implementation following the same standard.

Yes only one partition should be active and how Nextor handles the active flag is fine.
