Hi Micky,

 

My WD 4K sector HDDs with 512e firmware also report 

sector size: 512

Could you be kind enough to try again? (last test if it does not work)

..simply because in sys/disk.h I've found  "DKIOCGETPHYSICALBLOCKSIZE" defined, and it sound really good (stupid me..).

No problem. Here is your new sector size command line report for my WD 4K sector HDDs with 512e firmware:

Physical sector size: 4096
Logical sector size: 512

:)

 

Just confirm that it works, here is my report on the same PC for a non-AF HDD running Windows

Physical sector size: 512
Logical sector size: 512

I'm going to updated Zeus.app to detect the real sector size and install the boot1h with the result of my command line!

....but you're the only person I know with AF drive. Are you interested in doing a test when changes will be ready??

The error is triggered when you allocate too much memory, which can happen with huge ACPI tables. In that case there is simply not enough memory left to allocate, but try this change in memory.h

 

-#define ZALLOC_LEN        0x10000000

+#define ZALLOC_LEN        0x14000000

I fixed (imho) bugs. Can you test? Attached File  boot_r2379.zip   154.71KB   4 downloads

Thx.
