thanks
Thanks worked like a charm, just to let you know all is fine and still activated

edit:

So after first boot everything looked ok, but went to the market and it wouldn't download anything, thought I'll reset it, then went to boot and got in a boot loop on dft screen.

Put my old card in and bam everything works again? Any ideas?

thought of this method, and you wrote it up with tutorial which makes 100% sense

what builds have been tested so far that are able to boot from SD card?

does SUPERRAM 1.5 work?

You may wish to try again. I had no issues. Thanks

I'll take another look later, I'm using a Kingston 16gb, just doesn't want to work, does the windows partition need to be at the end of the drive?

Wonder if its the windows 7 compatibility problem with my SD

Hey there!

First I wanna thank you for this decent tutorial, very detailed.

Then I have a few questions:

1. When copyying the unformatted partition from smaller to larger card, did you resize it too? Right now I didn't so I will have 3 partitions on the larger card when I'm finished (3rd is a small piece appr. 200MB large). If one would resize the unformatted partition one could use the whole storage of the larger card...

2. I`m on step 8 right now (8. Using same procedure as outlined in 7, copy the “unformatted” partition from your smaller sd card to the larger sd card. Click “apply”.)
Is it normal that this takes forever (appr. 1% per minute)??

The windows partition needs to be at the beginning of the drive. See picture in 1st post. If it is not, your card may not show up on your pc.

Might be an issue with the sd card. Not all are working with wp7. Sandisk seems to be the safe bet for wp7. See posts in the wp7 forum about sd cards.

Thanks

Sry, screw question 1. Just saw on the attached pic of yours that you have 3 partitions as well...

I have only tried with resizing the fat 16 partition to a larger fat 32 partition so that all the sd card would be used.

Yes the process is very slow.

There are 2 partitions. The unformatted partition is a math error
