I created partitions with cfdisk and the one of the partition is
partition number 83 I made it and another is 82 which is swap space.

I was searching what is the code 83 corresponds to that I could not find
because if I remember 83,84 like that it was used for ext3/etx4 but
when I used cfdisk
i could not find a hex code corresponding to ext3,ext4.
