    Excuse me in advance if this does not make sense and is me seeing ghosts. And sorry for rising what is basically a AmigaOS issue.

    I have had a WD 1TB HD that I have used for a MorphOS install on one of my X5000's (MorphOS registred on the other machine). I have now moved the drive to my AmigaOS machine. However for some reason I can not use the new NGFileSystem on the disk. FFS and SFS works fine.

    In short I deleted the MorphOS install by rereading and installing the HD in AmigaOS. And then created new partitions. FFS and SFS creates and shows up fine. I can also create NGFileSystem partitions but when I reboot they do not show up.

    I know that this is not a AmigaOS/NGFileSystem support site :-)

    However, I seem to remember that MorphOS makes som very lowlevel alterations on the HD's it is installed on.

    So basically my question is if there maybe is something left from the MorphOS install that is causing my question in AmigaOS?

    Thank you in advance and sorry :-)

    Sorry, I'm gonna have to stop you right there. MorphOS does not make very lowlevel alterations to hard disks or to any other part of any system it is installed on for that matter. MorphOS only writes data to hard disks in a completely normal way, and any data installed to a hard disk by MorphOS can be erased by wiping the data on the disk in any standard way, for example with a simple dd command on any Unix system.

    I'll possibly be wrong here, as I don't use the system in question here, but it sounds like you're either supposed to install the filesystem in the RDB of the hard disk, and you didn't, or you've set up your partitions to not mount automatically on boot, which is a flag you'll be able to alter with whatever partitioning software you're using.

    However, I'd simply advice you to follow the documentation for the OS/filesystem you're trying to use, as that is where the issue lies.

    Thank you both @Piru and @Bigfoot for your detailed reply.

    As I wrote in the first line it is most likely me seeing ghosts. Thank you for ruling this out as a cause of error.

    I will continue searching for the error. It it is not the lack of install in RDB or me not setting it to automount.

    Thank you once again. Not in any way a post that was meant to cast any doubt on MorphOS. Just ruling out issues :-)

    Filesystems in OS4 are... problematic.
