fdisk with these options,
fdisk -H 32 -S 32 /dev/sdc
Then I made a new label, and created an aligned first partition.
Disk /dev/sdc: 7743 MB, 7743995904 bytes 32 heads, 32 sectors/track, 14770 cylinders, total 15124992 sectors
However when I run,
fdisk -l /dev/sdc
My heads are reported at 16, like this,
Disk /dev/sdc: 7743 MB, 7743995904 bytes 16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 29541 cylinders, total 15124992 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0xd84c4698 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdc1 8192 15124991 7558400 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
Why does the disk not show the 32, as I specified when creating the partitions? Is it just displaying 16, but everything is still actually as I specified?
Really just want to make sure I'm still correctly aligned.
