    force BIOS to reread drive info


    Hi!

    I am changing hard drive size by creating DCO area, but the new size is only displayed correctly after reboot. How can I force Linux to reread drive info without reboot?

    (no expert, but)...if you are talking about a different partition or hard drive altogether, perhaps unmounting and remounting would work?
    I don't even know what DCO is, so you probably know more than I do anyways... (in fact, could you tell me what DCO is?)

    I was interested too, so I googled it! It appears (to me) to be some sort of locked and/or hidden partition or tool. I didn't read a whole lot.

    @haaleaba,
    If the "new size is only displayed correctly after reboot" then what is the problem? don't you want it to be correct after rebooting?
