Prevent kernel reading partition information from disk
I don't know if this is the right forum, but i'll try it anyway...
Lately i get a lot of damage disks, which i'm asked to take a look at, mayby you can rescue the photo's, etc.
Normally i take an image with ddrescue and try to mount or scrape the image later.
To speed things up, i'm looking at building an old pc only for this cause, plugin a sata2usb cable, and automaticly make a disk image to another disk.
One of the problems i encounter is, that the kernel always wants to read the partitions on the disk. But the table can be broken. How do i prevent the kernel from doing this?
