      your fdisk -l reports 578308 blocks :
      578308 * 512B = 296093696 Bytes
      = 282 MBytes

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

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


      with A8-A14 revision BIOS, my laptop freeze when it write in
      the suspend partition.
