I have a pc running 400mhz - pretty old
I don't know what motherboard is in there .. but the problem is:
i want the pc using a seagate 120GB disk
the motherboard / bios does not support such a huge disk
with this seagate disk i can limit the disk with a jumper (to 32GB)
then I can boot.. and stuff ..
everything works ..
exept mounting hdb3 & 4 (because they're beyond the limit of 32GB???)
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 730 5863693+ 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2 731 793 506047+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hdb3 794 6873 48837600 83 Linux
/dev/hdb4 6874 14593 62010900 83 Linux
I can mount hdb3, but as soon as i do something with it, the system crashes/freeze
and I cannot mount hdb4 -> system crash/freeze
now i heard that seagate has some tools .. but only for windows machines
(cannot post urls??? look at seagate )
the utility is called DiscWizard Starter Edition -> only for windows
so I searched the net for a utility in linux
tried flashing bios (I think some f***ing adjustments are set, so that it is not writable or stuff I don't understand -> but even if this would work there would be only 60GB access)
I heard this problem (of accessability) would only be because of windows and bios or something .. because linux would not pay attention to the bios settings
I'm using gentoo gnu/linux kernel 2.4.?
would be great if somebody knows something about this ..
