Rescue disk's cfdisk reports HDD is corrupt
I've done searches at the list archive and FAQ-O-MATIC for similar
problems, but it would seem I've found a new one.
IBM PC 300PL
10Mb IDE HDD, 512Mb FAT, 3092 NTFS, remainder unpartitioned
Windows NT 4 SP5 (required for RealWork(tm))
Install Debian on the unpartitioned region of the disk and modify
boot.ini to run bootsect.lnx as an option. (Which I have done on several
other machines without any difficulty.)
On running install.bat from DOS (512Mb FAT partition), I cannot get
cfdisk to run successfully. The error message reports that "THE
PARTITION IS CORRUPT!" and then offers to wipe the partition table for
me and start over - not exactly the best choice option for me.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be causing the error?
Has this been seen before and I missed the post?
Or is this a bug report for the maintainer/upstream developer?
