How do I change the number of cylinders my HDD thinks it has?
I have a 500 GB WD Scorpio Blue that now thinks it is a 58GB drive, even in BIOS. I can reformat and repartition this 58GB until I'm "Blue" in the face (sorry) but it doesn't change a thing.
fdisk says the drive has 7,113 cylinders for a total of around 114M sectors, but the drive should have about 976M sectors. I think the correct cylinder value should be 60,801. I can change this in fdisk, but it doesn't actually save this to the drive.
