Bug Description

I still see many Summary reports with the far from start of disk error.
But yet to have that issue on any new UEFI based system using gpt.
Can warning be suppressed on UEFI or gpt drives.

Even if not applicable on most newer BIOS drives it is ok to leave that warning as they may have IDE settings in BIOS not AHCI.

Would also like to see more info on NVMe drives, but I think that is more in bootinfoscript.

Appears it wasn't completely fixed in 4ppa42. Should be solved in 4ppa51.
