No breakdown, I've just never seen an LBA partition table out put before. :)

Thanks for supplying a sample.

I'll see what I can do to add support for it.

In fact, if you want to be helpful in that regard, you could post textual output of the following commands with an LBA formatted drive:

myidetool.exe --list

myidetool.exe \\.\PhysicalDriveX -l

myidetool.exe \\.\PhysicalDriveX -L

If I get that output, the I'll see what I can do about LBA support.

In the mean-time I may just put a more helpful message in saying it's not working.

Thanks for that. If I need to, I'll go down to that level. I'm trying to avoid it, though :)

For now I'll just go against myidetool's output.

If someone who has an LBA drive could supply the output of:

myidetool.exe --list

myidetool.exe \\.\PhysicalDriveX -l

myidetool.exe \\.\PhysicalDriveX -L

That would be great.

In the mean-time I'm promoting the v0.6 version out into release without LBA support.

Many thanks RoyE - always great info from you, sir! :)

Here's an LBA version to try (I've only tried it with your mock data, so TAKE CARE!):

Same exact output failed as my posted above info..

The program must be seeing the CF card otherwise it wouldn't put out the Dialogue Box with all the info of partitions. and sizes.
You might ask Flashjasscat 'the programmer for the SDX partitioning software' what his math kernel looks like.

I'm quite surprised that it was exactly the same, but oh well.

What's the easiest way for me to get a drive LBA formatted/partitioned?

Can someone send me a backup image?

The I can stop stabbing in the dark..!

I can PM you an SDX-IDE.rom, and Fdisk, Listpart, programs for a AtariMax-MyIDE flash cart or ask flashjazzcat. I don't know for sure it is public domain yet as the Author programmer hasn't release it publicly yet.
But if you own an Atari that doesn't have Phi2 problems, and the Flashcart to flash the SDXrom into it might be easy..

P.S.
Have you read this thread on this forum..

Hi!

The SDX LBA partition-table format isn't 100% complete, so the output might change (slightly) until the final release. flashjazzcat & I are just discussing a slight modification (supporting more than 15 partitions).

Please also note that the output of myidetool, supporting the SDX LBA format, is different than the output of the older myidetool development-versions which added experimental support for MyIDE LBA format (aka MyIDE OS 5.0 LBA format). V0.40 of myidetool only supports the old CHS and new SDX LBA format.

@Sijmen: What's the status on your new LBA OS? I could add support for this partition format back to myidetool.

so long,

Hias

I'm here. What do you want to know about my math kernel???

And what's with the quotation marks?

Those should be comma's to reference Flashjazzcat as the programmer of fdisk software.

There was no Error Dialogue. But no correct info recorded.

Has the author downloaded the tech docs from here?

http://www.atari8.co.uk/myide/

The relevant passages are:

// offsets in partition table
enum {
ePartitionOffset = 0x10, // start of partition entry #1
eImageSpaceOffset = 0xf0 // partition entry #15
};
// offsets within global header block
enum {
eOfsTotalLBASize = 0, // 4 bytes LO..HI
eOfsLBAIdentificationr = 4, // must be $10
eOfsPartitions = 5, // must be set to # partitions
eOfsBootNo = 6, // boot drive number
eOfsOptionByte = 7 // option flags (see below)
};
// option bits
enum {
eOptionsPartCopy = 0x40, // Last LBA sector is copy of table
eOptionsCFCard = 0x80 // Media is CF card
}
// partition block size
enum {
ePartitionBlockSize = 0x10
};
SDX IDE Driver Technical Reference Manual
3
// offsets within partition information block
enum {
eOfsPartitionStart = 0, // 4 bytes LO..HI
eOfsPartitionSize = 4, // 4 bytes LO..HI
eOfsPartitionType = 8, // see below
eOfsPartitionFlags = 9, // see below
eOfsPartitionDrive = 10 // drive number (1..15)
};
// partition types
enum {
ePartTypeNone = 0,
ePartTypeSD = 0x01, // 128 bytes/sector
ePartTypeDD = 0x02, // 256 bytes/sector
ePartTypeQD = 0x03, // 512 bytes/sector
ePartTypeImageSpace = 0x80 // (Not yet implemented)
};
// partition flags
enum {
ePartFlagActive = 0x01,
ePartFlagWritable = 0x02,
ePartFlagBootable = 0x04
};

They look better in the PDF. :)

The changes Hias spoke of before simply involve provision for additional partition table sectors (each containing up to a further 16 partitions), mainly to support the dynamic (un)mounting of named partitions. I guess we'll need a flag somewhere to describe how many sectors the partition table uses. I assume they'd be contiguous (i.e. you allocate n partitions on a blank disk and you'd have to stick the that amount), rather than in a linked list. It's - AFAIK - the only change we're considering making to what you see here.
