Hello,I have a disk image which won't run with QEMU. Its CHS formula is 510,255,63 isn't recognized automatically, and whenever I specify -drive file=image.raw,cyls=510,heads=255,secs=63 QEMU exits saying "invalid physical heads number".
Is there a reason why head count above 16 isn't supported? Is there a workaround to make my image usable by QEMU without losing the data?
