Disk /dev/sda: 10.7 GB, 10737418240 bytes

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1305 cylinders

Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk identifier: 0x00011e25

 

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

/dev/sda1 * 1 25 200781 83 Linux

Disk /dev/dm-0: 9898 MB, 9898557440 bytes

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1203 cylinders

Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk identifier: 0x00000000

 

Disk /dev/dm-0 doesn't contain a valid partition table

 

Disk /dev/dm-1: 570 MB, 570425344 bytes

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 69 cylinders

Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
