Applies to RouterOS: v6rc5+


Sub-menu: /partition

Starting from v6rc5 it is possible to partition NAND flash, allowing to install own OS on each partition and specify primary and fallback partitions.


Note: Repartitioning of the NAND requires latest bootloader version

Minimum partition sizes:

  • 32MB on MIPS
  • 40MB on PowerPC
  • 48MB on CCR

Maximum number of allowed partitions is 8.
