Re: [users] big IBM harddisk

Dear Martin,

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?
