Create RDB hardfile and partition it using hdtoolbox (like when using real Amigas) Remember to use uaehf.device if you aren't using IDE or SCSI emulation.

If you really want to use partition hardfiles: Your problem is AmigaOS 3.1 and older limitation, total number of cylinders must be less than 65535. Increase number of heads until warning message in harddrive panel disappears and reformat it.

Emulation does not have any size limits but AmigaOS does have multiple different limits.
