I have this same thing. Those partitions were legal according to Hoyle.
Something changed them.
I have lived with this condition with no problems but would like to fix it.
Anyway, Linux can read/write them all with no problems. Windows works with
its partition and does not need or touch the others. Tools like
PartitionMagic and QTParted, however, will no longer work.
