Subject: Fwd: PROBLEM: ide messages during boot caused by a strange partition table

 [1.] One line summary of the problem:

ide messages during boot caused by a strange partition table

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:

hello,
i tried to install over an old win95 partition a
dos6.2.
it mangled badly the partition table and now linux
during the boot spews a lot of message like

hda: task_in_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: task_in_intr: error=0x10 { SectorIdNotFound },
LBAsect=1052835654, high=62, low=12648262, sector=1052835654

ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hda: task_in_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: task_in_intr: error=0x10 { SectorIdNotFound },
LBAsect=1052835654, high=62, low=12648262, sector=1052835654

ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hda: task_in_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: task_in_intr: error=0x10 { SectorIdNotFound },
LBAsect=1052835654, high=62, low=12648262, sector=1052835654

ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hda: task_in_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: task_in_intr: error=0x10 { SectorIdNotFound },
LBAsect=1052835654, high=62, low=12648262, sector=1052835654

ide: failed opcode was: unknown
ide0: reset: success

after about 1 minute of printing these error messages the
kernel "give up" and boot correctly.

the partition table is

btw: any idea on  how to recover my old partitions?
