Thanks for all the possibilities! :shock: :D But, how to I find the boundry for instance hda50? When I try fisk -u /dev/hda50 I get a warning: Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI or OSF disklabel I guess this is because of zeroing the partition table. And there are no s...

Hello! You said that the partition information comes from the Linux kernel? So did we change anything in the kernel itself? Or why shouldn't there be a hda56 any more? As far as I understood your script we've zeroed the partitions table; is that the reason? I only use hda50 (rootfs) hda1 as swap and...

It havn't used a script for mounting the partitions; I've only mounted all the drives to check if the sum is 137GB, but it isn't! The /dev/hda55/ doesn't exist; also while booting there's an error message: "special mount device /dev/hda55/ does not exist" but I've a /dev/hda56 with 22GB space! I gue...

yes a little bit confused, but I understand what you want to tell me. you said that all the drives are mapped between hda50-hda55, which are in the first 268435455 sektors, right? So, when I create a partition (e.g. hda3) in that range I'll override all the hda5#, and also the rootfs,...? I've tried...

The script is designed in a way to use up all your hard-disk and you wont have free space left for hda3. Otherwise, you can always create as many hda# using the fdisk tool by repeating the entire process again but give a smaller partition size for hda2. That's what I don't understand: I'm using onl...

hi! I've installed Gentoox new, and run all your scripts! now it works fine! (I've seen, that you've made some small changes in the script!) maybe I've done something wrong in the first install!?! My last questions: Can I make a 3rd partition (/dev/hda3) at the unused sectors of my HDD or will this ...

... once again thanks for the guide! I think i missed something, because now I've only 20GB at hda (/) I asked myself: "Where is the rest? (137 GB)" Then I made a big mistake: I added a new partition (hda3) in front of the swap partition :cry: ... I lost my rootfs an gentoox didn't start correctly a...

hi! thanks for your guide, but i think there's the last script (update.fstab.sh) missing :? Furthermore, I think there's a small fault in the "xfer.content.sh"-script mount -o loop /mnt/fatx/f/rootfs /mnt/rootfs there should be "/mnt/fatx/e/rootfs" since we have installed it on "E" i'm a linux newbi...
