    Could be a limitation of HEN. I just did a google search and found someone else having trouble using chickhen with a 32 gb memory stick (two 16's inside an adapter). There was no solution.

    Not exactly a limitation but you would have a better chance of booting chickhen if you had a 4GB MS or lower. Not that you MUST have a 4GB MS, it definately works for higher cpacity MS as well but the success rate is higher with a lower capacity MS. Also, it's probably not to fragment the MS so try formatting the MS. Also reset all your settings and then come back to us when it doesn't work.

    I just found a way to do it, first you get a 1 or 2GB sony card, use it to put chickHEN AND CFW 5.03 on to your PSP and put your PSP into sleep mode, replace the memory card with the 32GB and away you go.

    i've been using a method somewhat like that for quite some time.
    i have a 1GB, which i use to boot HEN.
    i then switch it with my 16GB, which has GEN, all my plugins, themes, games, and homebrew.
    sleepmode isn't needed, and i launch gen from my 16GB because otherwise it can get a little messy with custom themes not loading untill after playing a game.
