5 Can you use gdisk to create a new partition in some empty space on the
6 disk, delete it again, and write a partition table? Basically anything
7 to get gdisk or gparted to actually write a new partition table (that
8 should be the same as the old one, of course).
10 If there are hidden problems that udisk or whatever is picking up on -
11 garbage data somewhere most likely - that's the most likely way of
12 clearing it.
14 Cheers,
