For an 8GB drive I'd suggest to use PFS3ds or FFSTD64 (= FFS V44) or the old version of SFS (up to 1.87). These file systems allow access to 7.8 GB (8064 MB) even as one big partition without any further patch.

In all other cases you need two partitions and a reset during the first boot process. Patches for this are OS 3.5, OS 3.9, IDEfix97 or scsi.device V43. As file system can be used FFS V45 or SFS (any version).
What about the FastFileSystem and scsi.device from 3.9 BB2 (Patched with the BB2 patches from Aminet). Using both of these, I have been able to mount and use a 300GB HDD.

Obviously, the Boot partition still needs to be small, in order to load the patched scsi.device 43.45 and FastFileSystem 45.14.
