I have never succeeded to have the gemdos drive after real drives

I never used such a setup with Hatari, but i think that should be the easy.
The gemdos drives are mapped just to their corresponding directories, so if
you have lets say 2 partitions on your IDE  drive, just name the directory "e"
and you should be done.

For that to work, "e" needs to be in a directory that doesn't have
*anything* else than directories with single letter hard drive volume identifiers (C-Z). And you need to give Hatari the name of the directory
*containing* these volume letter subdirectories, not "e".

IMHO easier is just to use any directory and Hatari "--gemdos-drive e"

Only thing that does not work is to mix the order, eg.
have first the partitions from IDE, then gemdos, then partitions > from other drives.

Note: Hatari SDL GUI doesn't have an option for specifying the GEMDOS
drive volume, it has only option for skipping ACSI/IDE drives (which
corresponds to "--gemdos-drive skip" option), but that works correctly
*only* if both the emulated Atari hard disk driver and Hatari interpret
the hard disk partition tables to contain the same number of entries.

However, that interpretation can differ between different Atari
hard disk drivers, so whether "skip" works, can depend on the
hard disk driver in your HD image.

IMHO better just to use "--gemdos-drive <drive letter>" option.
