The only thing we clarified there is that even MiNT wasn't able
to access the resulting partition, which you refused to beleive.

Uwe Seimet confirmed that, without BigDOS, the partition (and any
partitions following it) simply won't show up in SingleTOS, nor
will it (and the following) be found at bootup if the TOS version
doesn't support that partition size.
