Hi List


There are problems with M$ booting and partioning of HD where reported by the BIOS with 240 Heads (many Laptop HD’s).

I have tested with the „Workaround“ (echo the /sys/firmware/… Values in /proc/ide/hda/settings ).

The behaviour of parted is always the same it portioning the HD always with 255 Heads not with 240.


I am stand By for testing ;-)
