need a list of partition tables on as many disks as possible


Hello everyone.

If you have a a minute, I need to compile a list of diffrent disk geometry and their partition tables. COuld you take a second and enter 2 commands in and post the output? I am writing a gui partitioner/installer and I don't have a lot of disks to test it on. I need a list of examples I can work from.

fdisk -l /dev/hdX
sfdisk -d /dev/hdaX

Also, if you could briefly explain where/how your partition table was created.

If you have a particular unique partion table, PLEASE post!

thanks for everyones support!

Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4864 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 3187 25599546 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 4795 4864 562275 5 Extended
/dev/hda3 3188 3200 104422+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 3201 4794 12803805 8e Linux LVM
/dev/hda5 4795 4864 562243+ 82 Linux swap

Partition table entries are not in disk order

======================

# partition table of /dev/hda
unit: sectors

/dev/hda1 : start= 63, size= 51199092, Id=83, bootable
/dev/hda2 : start= 77015610, size= 1124550, Id= 5
/dev/hda3 : start= 51199155, size= 208845, Id=83
/dev/hda4 : start= 51408000, size= 25607610, Id=8e
/dev/hda5 : start= 77015673, size= 1124487, Id=82

This laptop started out with one large hda1 and a swap. Resized it with the
gparted bootable CD and added CentOS. (It's a long story...)

Thanks again jimX86, so far it looks like my equation proves true, however, I wish I had received a bigger response. I am curious to see if windows/dos fdisk created the partition tables in the same way.

Oh well, at least there is one generous soul out there who cares enough to help out.

Thanks again jimX86!
