With all this talk about the problems with a larger then 137g drive, what really is the problem? I have mine formatted Native and it is a 160g Drive and it works perfect so far. I have filled the drive to less then 12g free and never had a problem. Is that drive limitation only if you use the F install?

yes, it only occurs on fatx partitions that cross the LBA28 boundary
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?
