VERY URGENT:does Solarix8 support hard disk as large as 40GB?
Posted on 2001-07-09
Hi, Solarix Experts,
I am a new comer of Solarx 8.
I have made up an Intel Platform computer (using Intel PIII 1GHz CPU, ASUS CUSL2-C Mainboard, IBM
IDE 40GB ATA) and successfully installed Solarix 8 Unix. However, I found that I can just use 6.9GB
of my 40-GB harddisk. I have run the "fdisk" command and find that I have just 14243 cylinders (512
bytes per cylinder). Totally, 34GB of my hard disk cannot be used.
I am not sure whether it is a problem of Solarix or it is a problem of my own installation. Can any
one give me some suggestion to handle this problem? To be hornest, I don't beleive that Solarix Intel
Version just support such a small hard disk size! Please help me, Professional Solarix Experts!
