I have earlier had serious problems with a Mac formatted disk, on which I has created a NTFS partion from Linux. When I edited the disk again from MacOS (adding a new partition to an empty space), the NTFS partition totally dissappeared!
Yes, this is the exact thing why not to use many HD configuration tools on one the same disk.Quote:
I would prefer to use HDToolbox, but is possible to use it on a disk on which you have MOS? I'm afraid MOS installer does not accept a disk prepared by HDToolbox, without wanting to reformat it first. And if you use HDToolbox on a disk already having MOS, it considers it 'corrupted' and fixes something on it, before it can do any further changes on the disk.
Sorry, this I don't know. My only machine with MOS+AOS combination is Pegasos 2. And there was first MorphOS, so I everything prepare with MOS HDConfig and then format under AmigaOS or linux.
You have to try. You cannot destroy the disk by add/remove partitions, only data on it. Try to made partition with AOS, and format it with MOS.
The difference I know between HDConfig and HDToolBox is, that AOS have marked "last drive", MOS not. Message "last drive is not correct" is opened, when you open MOS prepared disk with AOS HDToolbox. But you can safety ignore it. Or fix it, it doesn't matter.Quote:
So, is the trick just to use the identifier '4E544653', whatever tool you use? But as MOS cannot write on a NTFS partition, can it even format it?
I dont use custom identifiers much. I am not 100% sure, but I think they have only information reason. Maybe system offer automatically right filesystem for formatting, but you can freely select other. Of course, do not use builtin identifiers (DOS/FFS/SFS) for other filesysystems. It can be used for automount.
'4E544653'='NTFS' in ASCII.
I had linux filesysystems marked like 'ext3' or 'ext4', but 'lnx1' or 'lnx2' works also fine.
In any case '4E544653' is good identifier for NTFS [ Edited by sailor 07.04.2022 - 10:50 ]
