If you type fdisk /dev/hdc1 and then press P, does it see the drive size
correctly or does it complain to you about accessing the device?
unable to open /dev/hdc1
If however I enter fdisk /dev/hda1 then it gives me a whole paragraph about the
hard drive having more than 1024 cylinders, the partition table contains no
entries, and there is a message stating
Warning: invalid flag 0x0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by write
If I enter fdisk /dev/hda6, I get the correct drive size etc.
This doesn't sound hopeful I know.
