Unhappy help before formatting

On unzipping some files on my A600 2MB with Compact Flash HD, I had a crash (no disksafe installed). My HD has DH0: with personilzed WB2.1, DH2: with Classic WB GAAE, and DH1: (not bootable) for games/utilities.
Unfortunately now, I can boot from DH0: or DH2: or from floppy (!!!) DF0: only when, in the ealy boot-menu, I disable DH1:. If I don't disable it I get a "DH1 program failed error #800000004 Wait for disk activity to finish" and all ends. I believe it has a validate error.
A1200 repairs itself errors like this with first long waiting boot loading. Unfortunately A600 doesn't (? Kickstart 37.350 Vs. 3.0+).
Therefore I tried ValWait in StartUp-Sequence but with no success.
I would like to use utility like DiskSalv or similar, but since I'm forced to disable DH1, then I can't view this partition and so I can't fix it.
I can backup DH0: and DH1: to a compact flash using the PCMCIA port, then format all and reinstall them, but I would like to know if someone here in the forum can suggest me something before formatting. is offline
