Oh, dear... The box triple-boots - Windows 7/64, Solaris 11 (still on
151a) and NetBSD-current. The whole thing starts with Solaris 11's
grub. W7 takes two primary slots, as is unfortunately required; NetBSD
takes the third slot; then there is an extended partition, which holds
some shared 15GB FAT32 data and the Solaris11 partition. It works well
for me, I intend to keep this laptop until it dies completely (even if
we are in the process of getting upgrades now).

Having said that, I have a few external USB2 disks, at least two with
earlier -current (both amd64 and i386), which also work (I don't
bother updating them as often, though). -
