if 2Gb partition is enough, you can try the prepared hdf files in this archive.

here are two videos which may help, if you want to create hdf files on your own:

Most importantly, WB 3.1 and older don't handle >2G partition/free size and usually shows strange size values. It is only visual problem.
EDIT: If you use partition hardfiles >2G: don't unless you know what are you doing, for example geometry values must be correct, make sure WinUAE won't show "too many cyls" notification text in hardfile panel. Or use pre-made hardfile with correct geometry.

I have made a few prepared hdf image files available here https://github.com/henrikstengaard/h.../master/images.

They range from 2-64GB in size and are prepared following configuration:
  • Partitioned with max transfer 0x1FE00.
  • 5 cylinders free at end of last partition for RDB hdf images.
  • PFS3AIO v2.3 used for PFS\03 and PDS\03 partitions with filename size set to 107 characters. Note: Toni is working on a new release of PFS3AIO, which I will use to update the images once it released as a final version.
  • FastFileSystem v45.16 for DOS\07 partitions.
  • Partitions formatted and ready to use.
