2005-01-09 Thread Thomas Beer
Hi, I'm dealing with this issue since six weeks or so with no avail or a clear source of failure. So this may be my last chance. I have a 5.2.1 R Wifi access point on a Netgear MA 311 and two clients. I tested this with different versions of firmware. One client, a 5.3 B-7 has no problems in both

If the installer sees your existing XP and manufacturer service partitions, and they seem OK in terms of size, most likely everything is fine and you can ignore the warning about the geometry being incorrect. What seems strange between 4.x and 5.x in the fdisk partition table is, after
