Hi!
You seem to have the exact same problem I had.
After changing the partition type to 4d , you have to validate the changes.
If you donít, you end up with two different partition names that belong to the same drive.
Just do the operation again. Unfortunately you canít just go back, change the name and not format the partitions.
1 change partition type to 4d
2 Type W (to validate !!!)
3 Format both new partitions. Those will appear as 77.4 and 77.5 now

Cheers

Reinstall SSD[INDENT]42. Reinstall the SSD back into the CIC. Before placing all trim back in place, check to make sure the Nav works - This verifies that the hbnavi partition is functioning. Then check the Media Info to see the available size. If you have more than 12GB free space, it shows as 100% free


Iím now wondering if that would possible to fix the available space info to match the actual size of the partition...?
Also for those in the process of doing the mod, you can download the latest CDDB Gracenote database (search the forum, its there) and update while the partition is mounted.

Cheers

It could only be fixed via a firmware update from BMW.

The OS code is in flash memory and not on the hard drive.

You would also need their source code and digital keys.

Can anybody tell me if this would work on the f30 3 series? I read through the entire thread but may have missed it. I could really use more storage for digital music, not to mention a back up image in case the stock drive ever fails. I have the nbt system with nav, if it helps.
Thanks!
