Haiku 51100 x86 GCC5 on a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 upgraded with a 60GB OCZ AGILITY 4
DriveSetup sees my 60gb SSD but it only ever shows 1 59GB partition. I can format the full drive as one BeFS partition and install Haiku to it OK but DriveSetup fails to see my (intel/MBR) Linux partitions when present - one 27GB XFS root partition and a 2GB swap partition. I created a BeFS partition after the Linux partitions using cfdisk under Linux but DriveSetup/Haiku fails to see that too - it only ever shows 1 partition regardless. At first I thought it might be because Haiku doesn't support XFS but I reformtted it as ext4 (using mkfs -t ext4 ...) but Haiku still failed to see it.
Due to this issue I am unable to dual-boot Haiku with Linux on my netbook because (I believe) BeFS partitions cannot be resized?
