    1313=== No Primary Partition Required ===
    1414Because !AirBoot is written in (neat and compact) Assembler, it is small enough to fit in the track0 (nowhereland) space.
    15 So, unlike OS/2 Boot Manager, !AirBoot does not require a primary partition, resolving the problem that occured with Windows 7 OEM installations.

    2323No other tools required.
    2424=== Support For Huge Harddisks ===
    25 Under OS/2, huge harddisks are handled by using a special geometry.

    2626!AirBoot understands this special geometry, allowing OS/2 to boot from partitions located above the 512 GiB boundary.[[BR]]
    2727=== Operating System Agnostic ===
     
    3131== Before Using !AirBoot ==
    3232Before installing !AirBoot, it would be a good idea to learn a little bit more about it.
    33 This is especially true with regard to partitioning hard disks the way OS/2 likes it (use its volume manager) and the co-existance with other operating-systems.[[BR]]

    5252There exists a project clone at: [https://rousseaux.github.io/netlabs.air-boot]

    54 That project is *not* a fork of the original Netlabs project. It is a *clone* done with {{{git-svn}}} with the purpose to be able to use Git Branching for testing and feature additions.
