    Hi all,
    I've tried to setup up dual boot per instructions on an XDA Nook post. A few of us get errors when the CWM install tries to resize mmcblk0 8.

    The script:
    parted -s /dev/block/mmcblk0 resize 8 3692 7691

    gives following error:
    Error: Input/output error during read on /dev/block/mmcblk0

    One poster suggested trying: "fsck_msdos /dev/block/mmcblk0p8"
    Output is:
    ** /dev/block/mmcblk0p8
    ** Phase 1 - Read FAT (compare skipped)
    Attempting to allocate 5120 KB for FAT
    ** Phase 2 - Check Cluster Chains
    ** Phase 3 - Checking Directories
    ** Phase 4 - Checking for Lost Files
    60 files, 677160 free (1217866 clusters)

    Which doesn't help.

    Any other suggestions from anyone? I have a nootered 1.1 on my Nook.

    Thanks

    Dual boots it on my list of to-do, but haven't gone there. Since you bring it up though, it saves me a thread - has anyone here worked on dual-boot yet?

    Just got suggestion that finally worked for me. Had to re-format media partition.

    newfs_msdos -F 32 -L media /dev/block/mmcblk0p8
