parted “Error: Can’t have a partition outside the disk!” sometimes means you’ve a bogus DVD inserted

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/07

At first sight I thought I had a damaged partition table on the HDD, but then I realised it was a bogus DVD.

parted -l would give me this:

Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!
Ignore/Cancel? i                                                          
Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!
Ignore/Cancel? i                                                          
Model: NECVMWar VMware IDE CDR10 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sr0: 4647MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 2048B/2048B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags: 

Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      7340kB  23.9MB  16.5MB  primary               esp, type=ef
 2      23.9MB  18.6GB  18.6GB  primary               boot, hidden, type=17

A simple eject /dev/sr0 solved the issue.

Too bad there is no way to force parted to ignore errors (or specify a default answer).
