      Hi JM, list,

      Can you explain what you mean? The partition space is now around 564Mb whi=
      ch is larger than:
      - what mks2d uses by default (it complains of insufficient partition size a=
      t that size)
      - what one gets with the (512 + 32) * 1.01 + 4Mb formula (554Mb) (also insu=
      fficient)

      So I don't think that the problem is just insufficient partition size... (w=
      hat does "unrecoverable disk
      error" mean anyway?!)

      Is it true that s2d doesn't work with recent BIOS revisions on the i8100?

      What is the most recent BIOS that people have working with s2d?

      Thanks,
      Daniel
