comment Is this a so-called “Hybrid” Mac Partition table, and how can I mount this in Linux?
Yes, I think the drive is messed up. Because we're expecting it to only have one partition/filesystem, but we're seeing the drive split into several smaller pieces. Maybe it just had an "interesting" history, but it seems pretty off.

Surely 148237192 * 512 = 75 897 442 304 bytes. But yes, if none of the existing 5 HFS partitions can be mounted under linux, it would be interesting to look at the 5 HFS filesystems which testdisk found at rather different locations. While bearing in mind that mounting HFS+ on Linux could potentially be a destructive operation & that backups are a really good idea.

@olafatchmi where have you posted the testdisk output? I can't see it. Btw I don't think there's any MBR or GPT here, I think it's just an Apple partition map.

comment Partition offset at 63 or 64?
@user66229 answered already. I expanded the reasoning when I updated it regarding offset 0. In this case "everyone else does the exact same thing" is a really good answer. The only real question is whether there might be reasons to align to a larger number in future, not a smaller one.

more opinionated + include the explanation we found about offsets being 0-based, with 0 being invalid.

comment Partition offset at 63 or 64?
@user66229 ty. That explains the 0. (Ideally I could have guessed from online docs). The e command can also used to 'delete' partitions by resetting them to 0 - it looks like there's no separate delete command. Offset 0 is invalid because it overlaps the MBR, so I guess the non-zero size is just ignored (by the kernel?). In that case I think an offset value of 2048, or 64, would be aligned as I wrote in the answer.

expand MBR to explicate connection to partitions
