RedHat + Linux 1.2.X + Linux Partition Id 85 not recognized

RedHat + Linux 1.2.X + Linux Partition Id 85 not recognized

Post by ramk » Sun, 31 Mar 1996 04:00:00



I have two linux installations

Slackware 3.x + Linux 1.3.47 under which Linux extended partition
type is recognized (paritioned using fdisk 3.03) but under RedHat
3.x + Linux 1.2.x it is not being recognized.

Slackware boot messages show

Partition check:
  hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 >
  hdb: hdb1 hdb2 hdb3 hdb4

RedHat boot messages show

Partition check:
  hda: multiple mode turned off
  hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4
  hdb: multiple mode turned off
  hdb: hdb1 hdb2 hdb3 hdb4

I am trying to figure out if it is due to the kernel difference (1.2.x
does not support Linux Extendted but 1.3.X supports) or something else
totally different.

Thanks and cheers
ramki

P.S This the output of fdisk 3.03 on the Slackware setup

Yes. The type Linux Extended is supported since 1.3.33.

 
 
 

1. Linux not recognizing my 1.2 Gig DOS Hard Drive

Here's the situation.  I have a "frankenstein" computer at home
(my creation!).  It has two hard drives(1.2 Gig, 815 MByte),
SoundBlaster16 PnP (which linux boot disk won't recognize) w/4x CD-Rom

My motherboard bios does not support LBA for large hard drives, thus for
DOS/Win95 to see my entire 1.2 Gig drive, I have to install a
dynamic drive overlay in the boot sector of that drive.  This makes
linux see this as a type unknown in fdisk. (not dos >32)

I want to install linux on the other drive.  But with a PnP card
controlling my CDROM, I can't get linux to recognize the CDROM and
use the linux CDROM I bought.  I cant install from the DOS partion
because linux won't recognize that.  

What I really want is for linux to be able to mount my DOS
partion(s).   Anybody know how to do this with a dynamic
drive overlay installed on the drive that has the DOS partion?
