Can someone please step we through creating a 3rd partition in Apollo OS6 to use free space on 32GB card.
I used FixHDDsize and it shows 32GB.
In HDToolBOX I can see the free space but when I choose it I dont get the save option.
I did it inside ata.device.

Please list the steps I would really appreciate it.

Cool!

Is there a similar guide to safely create partitions for the unused CF space in Coffin?

I think coffin uses the familiar HDToolBOX.

It does, mate, although I would love a step-by-step guide, because all these numbers and parameters get way too technical for me.

Its really about time to make some more user friendly partition manager. Hope someone will be up to the task :)

Cool! thank you, i was wondering how we do this.

On the other hand, I noticed something in the display of the screen, it is in 1920x1080, good also it is with Apollo OS 4 I think it was possible, but not now with Apollo OS 6?

I have made the partition and formatted it successfully.
However the icon for HD3:(work) is a floppy disk and I want it to be a HDD.
Iconedit is missing from Apollo OS6 and I cant use HDDTOOLBOX now as I have installed MUI as default.
Is there a way of turning off MUI if its installed ?, I found the supplied script for MUI wasn't very good.
Some help to change my icon would be much appreciated.

hi, with directory opus, you access your dh3 disk and using disk.info from another disk you can copy it to dh3.

Hi, I think you could also do it with the classic HDToolbox OS3, to do this you should initialize the partition with a PC HD Editor and set ID 0x76.
