Correction: the above is wrong. Even with the third partition added,
one still cannot use anything else than 0 for the first partition
type, or the Windows partitioning tool will still get confused. Doing
this after Windows has extended the third partition, is safe (which is
how I tested it before, which made me believe it would work).
