P.S. How did you end up with this weird partition table?

Disk Druid under RedHat 7.3. This machine is a Dell, and _must_ have the weird, goofy partition in there to boot. The first time I booted the older (7.3) install tools, I had to do a lot of dancing to make sure there was always a type 222 partition around for the next boot. That's why the NetBSD partition starts at 64260; there used to be another copy of the 222 partition there.

I'm attaching the output of NetBSD's fdisk program, mainly as there are a lot more extended partitions that aren't showing up. However it looks like you're right, that some of the partitions are off the end of the intermediate extended partition.

I might also just try adjusting the length of the outer extended partition.

Actually, doing that made it work.

Ironically, I was only able to adjust the outer extended partition (the one in the primary partition table), but that was enough to make things work.


Take care,
