disk partitioning problem




I have a custom kickstart CD, based on RedHat 7.3 that has installed for years on a number of motherboards. I have just got an Microspace embedded board and it has failed. The reported problem is no disk space. Flipping to a shell and running fdisk shows that the partitioning is screwed up. For example a desired 50M boot partitions is 4.8GB because the start and end cylinders are wrong.

At first I thought this was a problem reading the disk geometry (which I suppose it actually is) but I tried redoing it by hand with fdisk and if I ask for a 50M partition, that's what I get.

What could be going wrong? Thanks.
