EEGo Test Definitions

I love the functionality of EEGo and what it brings to the table. It has certainly saved me once or twice from banging my head against a wall (or calling platinum "hi, its me again"). I have a question however, over the definitions of some of the tests that it runs. Specifically, the Disk Status Test.

If the S.M.A.R.T Test is the one that uses the self testing technology to determine if the drive will fail in the near future, what does the Disk Status one actually test for, and what does a 'Success' mean versus a 'Failed'?

Re: EEGo Test Definitions

Is there anyone that can speak to this portion of the tool?

Re: EEGo Test Definitions

The Disk Status Test checks that the disk meets the requirements for an EEPCinstallation. That is, it uses MBR partitioning with a bootable partition. With a standard windows machine this test will pass. EEPC doesn't currently support EFI / GUID partitions and this test will notify these machines as failures.
