Hi misjah,

So that the Amiga can read it, the 1.44MB floppy disk needs to be formatted to 720kB in Windows once the HD sensing hole has been covered by the sticker.

The can be done by using the FORMAT command at an MS-DOS prompt thus:
FORMAT A: /T:80 /N:9

Note that some Amiga floppy drives are unable to read 1.44MB floppy disks formatted to 720kB, even with the HD sensing hole covered.
