Which one is correct? I don't think it is necessarily the bigger one..
File system does not need disk size. It gets geometry from DOS during mount. It should first check for NSD / TD64 and only if both aren't supported fall back to DS. Then it could try to read the last block of the partition (given by Surfaces/BlocksPerTrack/HighCyl) to check whether DS works or not.
