With the very newest camera, you can make cards larger that 4G bootable.

Do you mean to put "BOOTDKISK" string in MBR in apropriate offset? I've found this solution somewhere on Magic Lantern wiki but seems to be not working for my sx130is. Or I did something wrong. Unfortunetly having no windows I can't use SDM installer to prepare my SD with.

I'm dealing with two partitions method having no problems (and using no windows I don't have to replace partitions each time). Nevertheless if sx130is can manage >4GB FAT32 partitions bootable I would be appreciated to know the proper way to do so...

No - FAT32 booting only works on cameras released this year.   Your sx130 unfortunately does not qualify.

Thank you for the reference and fast answer:) I bought my camera a half of year too fast (otherwise I would probably buy newer model)...

There's always a better thing coming just over  the hill.   Trick is to enjoy what you have now - it's just as awesome now as it was when you bought it !

@Outslider - you say you have no Windows. My SDMInst app (http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/clickpansdm/sdminst.html) runs on Macs and does the same job as the Windows installer. I'm currrently working on a Linux version - would you be interested in testing it?

I run Ubuntu (using VMWare Fusion on my Mac) and I'll need testers running it and other Linux flavours natively.

I'm available and I have a couple of spare 2,4 & 8M cards to play with.  Fedora 14.

PM me a link ?

I can test it;) Although my SD is well-fromated and I don't need now to touch it, but if it'll be helpful for you - no problem! Ubuntu 11.04 natively. VM Ware supports SD cards? Virtual Box does not, which is a problem.

Yes - VMWare does.  I used it for a while under Fedora - made a VM out of my Win7 paritition and then did CHDK development using CHDK-Shell in a VM.   The SD card part works really well.

I made my Win7 VM directly from a running copy of Win7 using VMware-Converter.  However Win7 running under the VM would decide after 45 days that it was "not an authorized copy" even though it was running on the same iron and disk.  So I had to recreate the VM image every 6 weeks - that got tiring so I eventually gave up and went back to dual-booting.    I suppose I could have reversed the process and run my Fedora partition under Win7, but that felt like treason.
