Wrong HDD Size when installing SL BE (x86_64) 1.0 [Solved]

Postby rikd » Tue Jul 31, 2007 19:42

Hi,

After having great experiences with SL on my desktop machine, I thought I'd have a go at moving my home server from SuSE 10.2 to SL BE 1.0 but have a strange problem

Posting here - as seems to be HW Issue rather than installation.

Have a home server based on ASrock M/B with VIA PT880 Ultra chipset
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=4CoreDual-VSTA&s=n

For some reason SL is detecting the attached 80GB Samsung PATA as 33.8GB.
Here's the output from dmesg

I've tried to google such problems - but no luck...
Am wondering if this line in the log is the key to the problem
Code: Select all

[   46.689424]  native size: 156301488 sectors

Seems pretty convenient that the # sectors is halved as is my drive capacity ;)

Would be great if anyone has any thoughts on this.

TIA

:oops: Boy do I feel stupid!

As I typed the post earlier I thought - hey that capacity thing is a bit familiar.

I opened up the box, checked the jumpers, cables, etc. and found that for some reason I had a jumper in the wrong place on the drive. Not too sure when I moved it - but putting things back to normal fixed the drive... :roll:

Just goes to show - always worth checking cables/jumpers when something goes wrong with your hardware :wink:

Wow. And here I was thinking that jumper cables either work or don't work!

you would think so...

Actually - what happened was..
Samsung PATA drives >32GB require 2 jumpers to be set for a master drive, but they only supply one. I found a spare jumper and put it on.
For some reason the spare jumper appears to have shaken off the drive. I put this down to some redocorating that was done recently and this machine got moved around a lot.
Still very strange - but hey - it works now :)
