1st step is maximize the layout to get access to full 128 GB
2nd step is create a new partition.
Please mind here partition size limits of different Amiga file systems and ensure to set the correct MAX transfer value
3rd step go in CLI and format from there.

Following these steps you should have no problem

There are 2 ways you can use the FORMAT command.
    1) Use the pulldown menu from within workbench.
    2) Use the CLI command...
SYS:System/Format DRIVE DH0: NAME "Volume Name" FFS NOICONS QUICK
NOTE:
    *  Change the DH0: with the name of the partition to format.
    *  Change the volume name to anything you like.
    *  The option FFS is to format for fast file system. Leave that out if use are using another filesystem such as PFS or SFS.
    *  The NOICONS option is used to prohibit the creation of the Trashcan. Delete this option if you wish to create the Trashcan.
   
If you get stuck, then use the help option.
From the CLI type...
SYS:System/Format ?
This will show the options you can use within the command line. The '?' option works with almost all AmigaDOS commands.

When you setup your hard-drive for the first time or even add a partition, when the changes are saved usually an icon will appear on the desktop stating the name of the drive and the words uninitialized or the name of the drive and some garbage characters. This is quite normal. Just select the icon and click on format. Use the quick option and the drive will be formatted.

if you look here in the NAVI BAR then you can see a tap named "APOLLO-OS"

You can find detailed explanation of all CLI commands under this TAP

i have noticed that ibrowse if i start it from the sd card no longer gives me problems before it used to freeze every time and this also affects other applications so i just wanted to inform the people in charge of apollo os that i think it is very good and i know that it is under development

HI,
  first of all hello evrybody. Trying to setup my Manticore right now and have a problem with the 128GB CF from Apollo
 
  I can see full size and i can create partitions.
  I can't format these partition.
  Depending on what file system I use i either get
  "Can't create application" (FFS)
  or
  "object is not of required type" (SFS)
  Partition size does not seem to influence the problem.

Using R9.4
 
  Thanks for any advice

Solved the issue with the FFS Filesystem. CLI Format works for that matter

Please format from CLI.
Please mind to set proper MAX TRANSFER value.
Please mind that Amiga filesystem have max partition size limitation.
Therefore it can be better make 2 or 3 partitions than one to big one.

it is not possible to create a new SFS partition on apolloOS after the procedure recommended by Gunnar creates a partition that cannot be formatted

what size did you create your partition?
what Max transfer did you set?
did you format from CLI?
