Hi,

Just plain "cp boot.bin /dev/sd#" will probably work (where the '#' needs to be replaced by whatever the USB device is, and better not be wrong or you could trash a hard drive or some other device's MBR).

The correct way is to use the "dd" utility though, which allows you to copy blocks (and ensure padding, etc).

As an alternative, you might be able to find some sort of utility for doing it on Windows - for an example dd for windows might work.


Cheers,

Brendan

You should boot under plain dos and use partcopy from there.
Windows is propably blocking partcopy's operations. I have had similar
problems with partcopy.

Have you tried hxd? It can read / write disks under windows?
