Ah ok, now i understand. So access to IDE is byteswapped because Hatari only 
emulates the original Falcon behaviour. But this is not done when reading the 
partition table, which is done through host file access, so it does not find 
any partitions.

Or add an option for it, like Aranym does. But of course the access must 
always be the same, whether reading the partition table or actual data.

As a workaround, you could try to hack the image by swapping only the root 
sector back.
