Hi

They should be exact, in fact, its kind of a real important rule. You must have a rookie for a CE. Not uncommon now-a-days.

Here's a good link. Refer to page 81.

Re: rp7420 Add Cell to Partition

You have version 3.3 installed, latest is version 4.1.

But since this cell is showing 000 only, it may have a problem.

You may consider to try to update all components or better call HP for support.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
