Automated FDISK - Please Help!

Threaded View
Roughly 7-8 years ago, a colleague and I found a page(s) online
describing the steps required to complete an automatic FDISK. Not only
were we able to automate the steps involved, but we were also able to
edit the program (HEX) (if I remember rightly) to automate the creation
of a primary partition spanning the entire size of the drive,
irrespective of the size. We used this to great success.

Needless to say, but I am unable to find any of my original work or
documentation. I have searched high and low online but only managed to
piece a few parts of the puzzle back together. If anyone has done this
before or has any documentation on this topic, I would really
appreciate the assistance.

Thanks in advance.

A search on Google for

fdisk command line switch

reveals many different switches - not all of them comaptible with different
versions of fdisk - that you could use as part of an automated script.

 Are you looking for a keyboard stuffer (such as KEY-FAKE)?


Re: Automated FDISK - Please Help!

Thanks for the replies. Basically have the initial FDISK procedure done
through a macro file now (created with hex editor), but still battling
with the commands to make use of the whole drive as one partition. I
hadn't considered a keyboard stuffer (this would basically be the same
as the macro option), as this wasn't the process we used before, but I
guess the same problem will apply, using the maximum available space as
one partition.
