15+ Partitions are back again using kernel version 2.6.28.x
Latest kernel, 2.6.28.x supports 63 partitions in PATA as well as SATA disks now.
One of my old hard disk having 23+ partitions was lying around and I plugged it in to use it again today. Booted up PartedMagic LiveCD having kernel version 18.104.22.168 and to my surprise, it recognized all partitions. I plugged in same disk in Ubuntu box having kernel 2.6.27.x. It could not detect all partitions. I downloaded latest stable kernel 22.214.171.124, compiled it and all partitions are visible in Ubuntu now.
Created 54 partitions using fdisk successfully. I couldn't create 63 partitions because fdisk threw error and I didn't have much time to find out problem. I will try to create 63 partition very soon.
Just for testing, I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 5 in 50th partition successfully. Ubuntu 9.04 has kernel 126.96.36.199 only.
We can create 63 partitions using kernel 2.6.28.x now. Good news !
