Quote from: "redsun"A few things to notice. The only drive is a 30GB Maxtor. The install program created a 8GB single partition. I used the single EIDE driver from the beta driver disk. So the OPENSTEP partition limit is 8GB, not 2 GB or 4GB. But the install program can only use the first 8GB disk space. I plan to use the reset for Windows. Not sure if the new Windows 7 or 8 would work. I can always do it again if anything blows up.
Quote from: "cubist"Formatted does not necessarily mean robust. If you start filling and/or doing dump/restores on that 8gb partition, you're likely to have problems. And partitioning isn't really a barrier to undefined behavior. This may take down your multi-system install as well.
Quote from: "t-rexky"The maximum supported partition size on both NS and OS is 2GB. OS actually will work with 4GB partitions but some file system tools (dump/restore in particular) will break beyond 2GB. My rule of thumb on NS is to define all partitions at 2GB. On OS I usually create a boot (system) partition of 2GB and all other partitions of 4GB - this allows me to clone the system partition using dump/restore without any errors.Partitions larger than 2GB on NS will result in I/O errors when accessing above 2GB.
