Thanks. I thought, that You have found a method to have two visible, bootable partitions, and just swap the booting partition (and so work partition) using CHDK.


Anyway - it could be interesting feature in chdk to use multipartition memory cards. Is there any way to implement it?

This is possible (and works fine) with a modified HD storage driver for Windows XP 32Bit :D

I tried this before but it did not work for my card. Anyway it is a shame that windows does not support two partitions as Linux for example.

Widows XP SP3, Vista or 7 accept only certified drivers.   :(

Work well with Windows XP SP2.

Thank you for your response.

I redid some research.

For Windows XP, see this:

It works fine on my laptop. (WinXP SP3)

For Windows> winXP, see this:
