  1. Is there any way that you could add support for a USB HDD or SSD so we can make a master boot HDD that is more reliable than a USB Flash Drive? I would assume that this would just need a change in the program to recognize the drive attached by USB.

    • USB hard disks are supported since the very first version. Actually, most of tests while working on the program, are on USB disk.
      If it’s not shown for you, try the advanced option “show disks on all interfaces”, but VERY careful which disk you select, internal disks will also be displayed.

  2. Hi there,

    Firstly, thanks for a great program. I’ve been using it on and off for the past week, and only just now run into an error. When formatting the USB on an 8GB USB drive and selecting FAT16 (for MS-DOS), I get the error “FAT16 supports up to 4GiB partitions, try resetting to FAT32”. Why is this?

      • No. I haven’t specified that I need a 4GiB or higher partition, so why is it forcing me to use FAT32 when I’d rather use FAT16?

        • There is no option to select partition size when using auto-format, full drive capacity is used, which is 8 GB in your case and FAT16 can’t be used.

            • Only can’t use the auto-format option.

              There are BootIce and RMPrepUSB included, can use either. Don’t recall if the also included FBinstTool supports custom partition size. Loads of external tools also exists. So there are plenty of options.

              Why insist on FAT16?

              • I’ll try and use them, then.

                I’m creating a DOS 6.22 boot disk in order to run legacy programs contained in the root of the USB. Booting into DOS 6.22 works well enough on FAT32 but I don’t get access to any of the files on the root, and I was told FAT16 might make a difference.

  3. either or all of sources boot.wim bootmgr\boot\, \boot\BCd are missing,or source is not supported error
