Re: [users] big IBM harddisk
I've tried this '32 Gb clip' and it does allow me to boot using my 40 Gb,
but i've been unable to get access to the last 8 Gb. I've been experimenting
with the 'hdx=c,h,s' parameter but all i can get are screens filled with all
kinds of hdd related errors rangeing from 'bad superblock' to 'seek error'
and loads of others. Have you found a way to access the full drive capacity?
