I Initialised a 128 GB CF Card  in 8 GB partitions with HDToolbox on AmigaOS 3.9 with uaehf.device 50.0 in Winuae. I istalled Workbench 3.1 on this Card, but when I put this CF-Card in the Apollo V4,  the Apollo does not starts the Workbench. In Wimuae the Workbench starts.

Can anybody help me to solve this problem?

What Kickstart is your V4 using? If it is using Apollo Kickstart then you will need to patch Kickstart 3.1 into the Vamp with VampireFlash or maprom it with VampireMap in order for WB 3.1 to boot.

A Example, A 128 GB CF Card with AmigaOS 3.1, or CF Card Bigger as 4 GB need Amiga OS 3.14 (or OS3.9 with patched ROM?) minimum, in-Rom updated scsi.device opens the Door for Large Drives like your 128 GB Card, and a Updated FFS-Filesystem is 64Bit capable to run on Large Drives,
I Use PFS3-AIO as Filesystem (Work & Boot Partitions) with is a faster Filesystem... Under AmigaOS3.2.1

To use drives more than 4 GB you need the 64bit SCSI device.
While you can patch your kickstart this is a complicated process.
A very simple solution is using a preconfigured system which did this already.  For example Coffin.
Coffin is based on Amiga OS 3.9 with 64bit patches and a lot software for internet access already preinstalled and configured.

ApolloOS which comes shipped with V4 also support 64bit drives and also is preconfigured to allow easy internet access.
