I'm using FreeBSD 4.0 and this is a new installation. I have a
Maxtor 91728D8 which is a 17 gig drive. The label on the drive
cylinder 16383 head 16 sectors 63
When I boot up with the cd and do the Disk label it says this:
cylinder 4096 head 16 sectors 63
Which is now only giving me like maybe a little less than 2 gigs.
There is nothing physically wrong with the drive. I boot up in
dos and it does the same thing on an Fdisk, tells me there is only
about a gig or so of space. I tried fixing it with setting the geometry
in BSD, which when I set the geometry to the listing on the outside
of the drive it shows up correctly, but I write the information out
and reboot and it's back to 4096 cylinders. The Bios is correctly
identifying the drive as you can see above in the drive ID, what can
I do to get my 16 gigs of space back?
