Partition Table

The term partition table is most commonly associated with the MBR partition table of a Master Boot Record (MBR) in IBM PC compatibles, but it may be used generically to refer to other "formats" that divide a disk drive into partitions, such as: GUID Partition Table (GPT), Apple partition map (APM), or BSD disklabel.

An alternative term to generically refer to partition table is partition map.

    Comes the time when it’s later
    and onto your table the headwaiter
    puts the bill,
    Robert Creeley (b. 1926)
