A 14 year old release of Windows that has been end of life and
unsupported for years?  Yikes!  That could explain why it is trying to
access the disk in CHS mode.  On the other hand, you may simply need
to restore the correct Windows boot code to the MBR.  I don't recall
what parted puts there if you try to create a partition table on a
blank disk, but it almost certainly is not the same as the Windows code.

I am confused.  If you are using sfdisk to partition the drive, then
what does this have to do with parted?

Oh boy, those are also ancient ( 8 and 5 years old ).  You should try
an up to date version.

How is it "failing"?  If it is only the CHS values that have changed,
then nobody should notice or care since any software written in the
last 20 years has ignored these values as they have been meaningless
and obsolete since the '90s.  I gather that you are using parted to
recreate the partition table on the drive so you can then restore the
data to those partitions using some other means?  Just to make sure,
there is only a single logical drive in /dev on which you are using
parted right?

Looking at your picture, it appears that the original CHS values were
Head = 7, Sector = 61, Cylinder = 1023, and the new values are Head =
131, Sector = 62, Cylinder = 1023.  In both cases the ending LBA is
20482560, which is too large to be represented in CHS, so presumably
these values are the maximum allowed values going by whatever the
partitioner thinks the drive's "actual" ( no such thing ) geometry is.
 I'm guessing that whatever you originally used to partition the drive
believed it had 8 heads and 62 sectors per track, and now your kernel
thinks it has 132 heads and 63 sectors per track.  Normally the kernel
assumes 255 heads and 63 sectors per track, so I'm not sure where the
132 is coming from.

> We are using a 5.8 kernel.

Did you mean 3.8?

Can you be more specific?  Also CHS is mythical nonsense these days
and should be totally ignored by everyone.

Sir:

We are experiencing some odd behavior with the parted command.

I am trying to reconstruct a partition table entry on a scsi raid drive.

When we do this our ending CHS is off by one.

It was FD FF FF and it becomes FE FF FF.

This prevents our system from booting up.

We are using version RHEL 5.8 and parted to reconstruct the  partition tabl=
e entry.

Are there any known bugs with parted and scsi raid drives?

Can you possibly direct us to some literature that can help us solve this p=
roblem?

Many Thanks,

Eric Price.
