Cylinders: 38309 Head: 16 Pre: 0 LandZone: 38308 Sectors: 255
I selected the "G" command from sysinstall's menu to set the geometry manually: 38309/16/255 (cyl/hd/sector) and it still insists the figures are wrong. It's defaulting back to what it believes is correct:
9729 cylinders 255 heads 63 sectors
These are 80gb SATA drives. The BIOS is set to run in IDE Enhanced mode (I believe).
I did a test installation and it worked, except the dreaded GRUB loader (from a linux test install) keeps coming up (fdisk /mbr does NOT get rid of it)... I don't know if that's the cause of this problem (doubtful).
Any clues as to what might be wrong? The BIOS is AMI/Phoenix, and is up-to-date.
