Further to my earlier post getting the AB IPBox 900HD up and running with Sky+ HD: https://tickett.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/ab-ipbox-9900hd-with-sky-hd-uk/
I had a bit of trouble initializing a large HDD (320GB worked… 1.5TB didn’t) so here’s the workaround:
Telnet into the box and issue the following commands (make sure you replace the /dev/sda if fdisk –l identifies your drive with a different path and 1400GB with a figure slightly smaller than the size of your disk):
fdisk –l fdisk /dev/sda d n p 1 enter +1400GB n p 2 enter enter w mkswap /dev/sda2 swapon /dev/sda2 mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1 reboot
The mkfs.ext3 command formats the disk and will take quite a while on larger disks (there may be a quick format option but I wasn’t in a hurry)
Once the box has rebooted your HDD will be mounted at /hdd – you need to make a folder /hdd/movies reboot again and you’re good to go!
