In this practice we have to get the name of the hard disk and its partitions in different computers: in a Raspberry Pi, in Linux and in Windows. Also we have to compare computers both x86 and x86-64 architecture. Every hard disk of each computer has different partitions from the rest.
Here we analyze a 32 bits computer of the class with the help of hirens boot cd and its tools that you will see.
3) Dos Programs
We also analyze a 64 bits computer at home. Here we will saw you its different hard disk partitions from different ways.
With windows, without booting the computer, we obtain this information.
But if we boot the computer with hirens boot and the option mini windows xp we get the same information:
To see the partitions of a hard disk in a Linux computer you have to use ubuntu or your hiren’s boot cd. Then you have to search the gparted in the menu or applications and select accesories. Following these steps you will arrive to the partitions of your computer:
3) Dos programs
We can also get this information through the hiren’s boot cd using the option of “Dos programs”. As we have said before check if you are looking in the right hard disk, if it’s wrong press F5 to change it.
RASPBERRY PI COMPUTER
We have been looking in other types of computers with an arquitecture, that is ARM (Raspberry Pi).
To get the information from this PC you have to open terminal, type ‘gparted’ and press Enter. It will open, you have to check if it is the right disk because maybe you are looking your USB.
To make a screenshot in a raspberry computer you have to type in the terminal: scrot -c -d10 or the number of seconds that you want to take the image.
The conclusion that we can get of this practical is that each computer has a different hard disk, but the hard disk does not depend in the operating system because we can see that in the same computer, with linux, windows, or dos programs, we obtain the same partitions with the same información.
