Different Keys.
Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.

Hold up.. different positions for major/minor scales don't really exist. You can vary how you play them (on one string, box scale, etc.) but if you change the positions of the notes, it's a completely different scale (unless you play the same notes somewhere else on the fret board).

Pentatonic scales have different forms though. Their root notes are in different positions and they start at different places on the fret board.

Um, not entirely sure what you're on about there...

A scale is a pattern of note intervals, usually 7, which repeats constantly. If you know the pattern just pick a root note and play, when you hit the 7th note you can just move to the next instance of the root note and start again, that applies for ALL scales, pentatonic or otherwise. Any scale exists all over the fretboard and can be played numerous ways due to the fact that most notes are duplicated at least once on the fretboard. That being the case, it's imperative to actually learn the notes on the fretboard before even thinking about scales, let alone attempting to learn them. You also need to use your ears to teach yourself to recognise octaves and the intervals between notes.

Scales are NOT boxes, the whole point of them is the intervals between the notes - the physical positioning of the notes on the fretboard is the least important aspect of a scale. It doesn't matter where you pay as long as you play the correct notes...not frets, or strings, NOTES.

Scales =/= positions or boxes. Scales are sets of intervals, and the key depends on the formula applied to the notes. Scales span the entire fretboard and can be played anywhere, regardless of what frets or what part of the neck.
