Actually this is fixed in release 2, now it has 1.4G in /dev/root (see image below). If you are currently using Release 2 and your board is not repartitioned I’d suggest you to try the flashall method. Let me know if this helps.
Thanks JPMontero_Intel. Can you point me to instructions for the flashall method using Windows 8.1 x64? I've searched the forums and only found old posts that say it doesn't work with Windows or there are problems running it from Windows, etc.. If there is anything I need to do to change the partition size before flashing, let me know.
When you say release 2, do you mean the board or the firmware? How do I find out the release? I'm not near the board now, but I bought it a week ago, and downloaded the firmware that was dated January 31st (I think). It had come with an August 2014 version.

You can download the release in the following site, it is displayed as Yocto complete image. Also in this message vjou provided this link for a pre-compiled version of dfu-util for Windows. Please follow these steps:
- Download Edison Yocto complete image.
- Extract the content into a folder.
- Download dfu-util.
- Copy the dfu-util.exe in the same folder you extracted the Yocto image.
- Open cmd and go to the directory of the Yocto image and type flashall.bat
At this moment you should see a message that says "Please plug and reboot the board", once you rebooted the board it should start flashing. I just tested it and works just fine, but in case you get an error let us know. I hope this helps, let me know if it works for you.
Thanks, that worked for me.

In my case I've got Edison attached to Windows but there is no ota mounted under Windows. This rules out flashall.bat.
Even if I could get the ota to mount under Windows, the moment dfu-util asks that I power cycle the Edison I lose the
drive and the entire process goes kaput.
I can't seem to get myself out of this one... any help would be appreciated.
You don’t have access to the Edison drive, right? So you cannot do the reboot ota method, but the flashall method as long as the USB cable is recognized by the computer you can try flashall, this method does not requires access to the Edison drive.
