Re: Installing JXFS (and getting a lot of bad blocks)

I suspect that there is a maximum partition size, especially for Western Digital hard drives. There is a thread over on amigaworld about this issue.

Here are my notes from some experiments on August 15, 2009 ...

August 15, 2009, I added a 160 GB partion to my Western Digital hard drive
- DH3 Volume name "Extras" ... 160 GB JXFileSystem (JXF\04)
- As per instructions from Media Toolbox, I let the machine reboot.
- DH3 showed up as unformatted.
- Quick format ok.
- Copied two videos over to DH3. Both played just fine.

Then I did a cold boot (power off/on) ...

Please insert volume
in any drive.

Lucky thing I burned a bootable backup to CD-R before I added the new partition ...

Rebooted machine using CD-R. Renamed my new partion to a different Volume name a few times, but same message on boot from hard drive.

Rebooted machine using CD-R and deleted the new partition.

System running ok since.
