I normally use
fdisk -l to look at partitions. I recently installed ubuntu 17.10 on a computer, and noticed that fdisk is not showing me the boot flag as it used to do. The output now looks for example like this
Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 1050623 1048576 512M EFI System /dev/sda2 1050624 1953523711 1952473088 931G Linux filesystem
I've not been able to find any info on why the boot column is missing, or how to get it back. Any links/info on this?
fdisk --version gives me
fdisk from util-linux 2.30.1. I have another computer with version 2.27 (ubuntu 16.04), and this does show me the boot flag.
