In addition to 'use existing AROS partitions' on installAROS, if there was an option to 'wipe AROS partitions' then it would be easier to add or remove a Work partition. Just two cents.
M
hmz, never thought about that tbh.

fwiw: for testing purposes i use two pen-drives, one with 2 and the other with 1 AROS partition, and select use existing AROS partitions. For 2.0 Icaros release i needed to re-do completely, but usually that's only required once in a while.

Would it be worth a feature request on AROS bugtracker ? (e.g. you can work around it now).

Although probably not for the casual user, i usually use more partitions, which i solve know by specifying the size of the work partition so that there is space left that i can use with HD-toolbox and manually add. So i would prefer an option for that, or having a bit better understandable/workable hd-toolbox
cavemann
You have a good point. The core issue is that the HDToolBox is cumbersome to use. Sadly, I have no suggestions for HDToolBox, except to say that I like the way GParted works, so that might be something to strive for. But I am happy that some improvements were made to HDToolBox :)

Since I got a positive response here. I mentioned my suggestion at Aros-Exec too, hopefully it will attract some positive reactions and stay flame free.
