    1. The offset 0xA60 of the AC holds the Boot Header Signature.
    2. The offset 0xC60 of the AC holds the signature of PLM and PMCDATA.
  2. For the Header tables:
    1. The offset 0xA60 of the AC holds the IHT Signature.
    2. The offset 0xC60 of the AC holds the signature of all the headers except IHT.
  3. For any other partition:
    1. The offset 0xA60 of the AC is zeroized.
    2. The offset 0xC60 of the AC holds the signature of that partition.
