I just partitioned a new GUID drive, and accidentally chose "Linux filesystem" (0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4) instead "Linux root (x86-64)" (4F68BCE3-E8CD-4DB1-96E7-FBCAF984B709) for my root partition. I already downloaded and installed the system. Is it possible to change the partition type without reinstalling/repartitioning?

OK, I must have been blind.

In fdisk there is an entry

t   change a partition type

Just select it, choose the partition, and enter 24 (or l to check the number first)
