REPARTITION(8) System Manager's Manual REPARTITION(8)NAME
repartition - load a partition table
repartition device [partition-file]
Repartition uploads a new partition table for the partitions of device. The table is obtained from the first sector of partition-file if
given, device otherwise. Device may refer to the whole drive or a primary partition, depending on whether you want to upload a partition
or a subpartition table. The partitions will be truncated to fit within the enclosing device like the disk driver does, unless the numbers
are coming from partition-file.
repartition /dev/hd4 /etc/hd4.table
Reload the partition table of drive 0 setting /dev/hd[1-4], and the subpartition table of /dev/hd4 setting /dev/hd4[a-d] using a file. The
latter may be useful if you need more than the 4 subpartitions a single Minix partition gives you.
The new table is printed on standard output.
SEE ALSO hd(4), part(8).
The disk must be in use for the changes to stick. The partition table of an idle disk will be reloaded on the first open.

FDISK(8) System Manager's Manual FDISK(8)NAME
fdisk - partition a hard disk [IBM]
fdisk [-hm] [-sn] [file]
OPTIONS -h Number of disk heads is m
-s Number of sectors per track is n
fdisk /dev/hd0 # Examine disk partitions
fdisk -h9 /dev/hd0 # Examine disk with 9 heads
When fdisk starts up, it reads in the partition table and displays it. It then presents a menu to allow the user to modify partitions,
store the partition table on a file, or load it from a file. Partitions can be marked as MINIX, DOS or other, as well as active or not.
Using fdisk is self-explanatory. However, be aware that repartitioning a disk will cause information on it to be lost. Rebooting the sys-
tem immediately is mandatory after changing partition sizes and parameters. MINIX, XENIX, PC-IX, and MS-DOS all have different partition
numbering schemes. Thus when using multiple systems on the same disk, be careful.
Note that MINIX, unlike MS-DOS , cannot access the last sector in a partition with an odd number of sectors. The reason that odd partition
sizes do not cause a problem with MS-DOS is that MS-DOS allocates disk space in units of 512-byte sectors, whereas MINIX uses 1K blocks.
Fdisk has a variety of other features that can be seen by typing h.
Fdisk normally knows the geometry of the device by asking the driver. You can use the -h and -s options to override the numbers found.
