- NetBSD kernel itself already has LBA48 support so all existing
restorecd can handle large disks.
- NetBSD/cobalt *bootloader* in 5.0.x and 5.1_RC2 (and forthcomming 5.1)
don't have LBA48 support, but it's required only if installed kernel
is put beyond >137GB boundary on the target disk, and I guess
it's unlikely in most case.
- If bootloader from 5.1_RC2 restorecd in your disk fails to load
your kernel, you can replace it with -current bootloader binary
which has LBA48 support.
The latest bootloader can be found in daily build:
and you can replace it by using restorecd as a rescue disk if necessary.
If there is a popular demand for LBA48 capable bootloader,
I'll send a pullup request of it.
