Re: dmraid erronously detects pdc metadata

Hello,

I tried to update my system from the mandriva-free-2007-thor-DVD.i586-x86_64
DVD.

Installation failed because dmraid detected PDC metadata on my second HD (see
http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=24096).

The fact is I do *not* have any Promise controller, my box is built upon an asus
A7V133-C board.

My question is: Is it safe to erase RAID metadata
(dmraid -E /dev/hdb)? Is there any risc to lose my
partition table ?

# fdisk -l /dev/hdb

Disque /dev/hdb: 81.9 Go, 81964302336 octets
255 têtes, 63 secteurs/piste, 9964 cylindres
Unités = cylindres de 16065 * 512 = 8225280 octets
