First this is my fault. While flashing my updated version of Cacko 1.23 for the C3000. I lost my partition table.
No big thing right? Just boot into D+B mode recreate them and then reflash right?
Well. I can't seem to create a 'good' partition table.
I've tried as both /dev/hda and /dev/hdc (w/ a CF card inserted) and I get the same 'extra' partition. After creating hda2, when I start to create hda3 fdisk autoselects partition 4.
Here's what my partition table ends up looking like.
/dev/hda1 1-204 id 83 (linux)
/dev/hda2 205-1020 id 83 (linux)
/dev/hda3 1-1 no type
/dev/hda4 1021-7936 fat32
I've even tried building the partition table backwards (from hda3 to hda1). I that case I still get the 1 block no type partition. I don't understand enough of the advanced menu in fdisk to know if I can clean this up.
I just don't get it. I will say that a few times fdisk didn't even find my hard drive. I bought my 3K the first week after they were announced, so this unit is a full 3 years old.
Is this fixable?
Edit to mark as fixed.
