Ah yes, very good idea when using dsfi,

Reason is, i plan to use a different utility to make partition dump faster, that is why this didnt come in my mind at first place. I couldnt make things i want with savepart on this subject, ghost is doing exactly what i want with speed (and with an unwanted correction) but i dont want to use a nonfree utility.

Probably when i find a nice nonfree utility that does diskcopy, i will need that drive number :confused1:

I try all (i guess) free partition utility in the list, some of them didnt like/want to use disk mounted by vdk, most dont have any command entry, others made disk dump with speed of dsfi. So no success for now, probably i will go back to the begining with trials with savepart.

Beside this unsuccess for now,
bpatcher.exe yUSB.img 1C2 0C
didnt work with 4gb image file :confused1:
so i choose another way to add a correction for 0B-0C and 06-0E,

i added lines in bold to mkimg.cmd

ECHO Press any key to unmount the image and uninstall vdk.exe...
ECHO.
PAUSE
)
VDK.EXE REMOVE

if "%PartType%" == "0E" goto :correctionfix
if "%PartType%" == "0C" goto :correctionfix
goto correctioncontinue
:correctionfix
del /q /f %Targetfile%512.mbr
del /q /f %Targetfile%512_patch.mbr
dsfo %Targetfile% 0 512 %Targetfile%512.mbr
copy /y %Targetfile%512.mbr %Targetfile%512_patch.mbr
bpatcher.exe %Targetfile%512.mbr 1C2 %PartType%
dsfi %Targetfile% 0 512 %Targetfile%512.mbr
:correctioncontinue

GOTO :EOF


in my tests everything seems to work fine, but i can be mistaken! please confirm that the lines are nice to add to mkimg.cmd?

They LOOK mostly allright. :confused1:

This:

copy /y %Targetfile%512.mbr %Targetfile%512_patch.mbr


should be:

copy /b %Targetfile%512.mbr %Targetfile%512_patch.mbr


Is it possible that bpatcher has a filesize limit? :cheers:

Thanks for all support,
i put new notes to post 14 and uploaded file with /b

after some trials with bpatcher i guess limit is between 1600 MB and 1700 MB

If not demanding much :confused1: can you give me clue to find drive number with using %DRIVE% ?

I guess you need to use another utility :cheers:, like MBRFIX or MBRWIZ, just to name a couple, but there are several more, check also among the "minor" utilities by Olof:
http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html

Or you could try re-starting VDK and use
VDK IMAGE
since VDK has been restarted after the USB stick has been detected, it's first drive (but you can also start just one drive) number should be one more that of the USB stick.

I found a solution by using nfgdump.exe,
http://lancelot.winb.../5F/nfgdump.exe
so now before unmounting image, correction can be made by modifying mkimg.cmd

REM CORRECTION on vdk mounted image
for /f "tokens=3 delims=\Dev " %%A in ('nfgdump list^|FIND "%DRIVE%"') do SET Drivenumber=%%A
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a.mbr
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
dsfo \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a.mbr
copy /b %Targetfile%512a.mbr %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
bpatcher.exe %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr 1C2 %PartType%
dsfi \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr

VDK.EXE REMOVE


Again I need confirmation ? (sorry, but i am still a rookie, it will take looong time to :confused1: graduate :cheers: )
I didnt use If closes this time (if "%PartType%" == "0E" ...), maybe i do right, maybe wrong??
and if confirmed yes, than the previous modification to change %targetfile% would be useless???

As I see it, a check with %parttype% would be advisable.

The latest snippet will uncoditionally re-write the partition type, this can take a few seconds, which are unneeded when written partition type already equals %parttype%.

Also, why you need using two files?:
%Targetfile%512a.mbr
%Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
cannot you just patch the extracted %Targetfile%512a.mbr? :confused1:

For the record, nfgdump is an Open Source project, the homepage is here:
http://sourceforge.n...ojects/nfgdump/

So final 1 is that:

REM CORRECTION on vdk mounted image
if "%PartType%" == "0E" goto :correctionfixa
if "%PartType%" == "0C" goto :correctionfixa
goto correctionacontinue
:correctionfixa
for /f "tokens=3 delims=\Dev " %%A in ('nfgdump list^|FIND "%DRIVE%"') do SET Drivenumber=%%A
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a.mbr
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
dsfo \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a.mbr
copy /b %Targetfile%512a.mbr %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
bpatcher.exe %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr 1C2 %PartType%
dsfi \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
:correctionacontinue

VDK.EXE REMOVE

Also, why you need using two files?
cannot you just patch the extracted %Targetfile%512a.mbr?

yes one file is enough, i use this method to see the change before/after during trials :confused1: As i am a rookie, i double (in this case triple, 2 files + created image file) check as much as possible, i loose lots of times with a gain of making less (but not zero) mistakes. :cheers:

So final2 can be this:

REM CORRECTION on vdk mounted image
if "%PartType%" == "0E" goto :correctionfixa
if "%PartType%" == "0C" goto :correctionfixa
goto correctionacontinue
:correctionfixa
for /f "tokens=3 delims=\Dev " %%A in ('nfgdump list^|FIND "%DRIVE%"') do SET Drivenumber=%%A
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a.mbr
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
dsfo \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a.mbr
copy /b %Targetfile%512a.mbr %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
bpatcher.exe %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr 1C2 %PartType%
dsfi \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a.mbr
del /q /f %Targetfile%512a_patch.mbr
:correctionacontinue

VDK.EXE REMOVE

Yep, but "final 3" could be:

if "%PartType%" == "0E" CALL :correctionfixa

if "%PartType%" == "0C" CALL :correctionfixa

VDK.EXE REMOVE

GOTO :EOF



:correctionfixa

YES Capitan

I made some changes so correction made before explorer executed (so someone who look mbr info of mounted disk will see final mbr of image, and a diskcopy utility can be used at this stage), i guess this time i did all right?

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. (
if exist .\BootFiles\NTLDR copy /y ".\BootFiles\NTLDR" %drive%
if exist .\BootFiles\NTDETECT.COM copy /y ".\BootFiles\NTDETECT.COM" %drive%
if exist .\BootFiles\boot.ini copy /y ".\BootFiles\boot.ini" %drive%
if exist .\BootFiles\grldr copy /y ".\BootFiles\grldr" %drive%
if exist .\BootFiles\MENU.LST copy /y ".\BootFiles\MENU.LST" %drive%
xcopy .\ExtraFiles\*.* %drive% /s /y /e /h
)
REM CORRECTION on vdk mounted image
if "%PartType%" == "0E" CALL :correctionfixa
if "%PartType%" == "0C" CALL :correctionfixa

START /WAIT %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %drive%
ECHO.
ECHO Press any key to unmount the image and uninstall vdk.exe...
ECHO.
PAUSE
VDK.EXE REMOVE
vdk.exe open * %Targetfile% /rw
VDK.EXE REMOVE
GOTO :EOF

:correctionfixa
for /f "tokens=3 delims=\Dev " %%A in ('nfgdump list^|FIND "%DRIVE%"') do SET Drivenumber=%%A
IF EXIST %Targetfile%512a.mbr del /q /f %Targetfile%512a.mbr
dsfo \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE%Drivenumber% 0 512 %Targetfile%512a.mbr
bpatcher.exe %Targetfile%512a.mbr 1C2 %PartType%

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. (

This should mean that in "interactive mode", NO matter what the user actually wants, you "force" him to copy:

NTLDR
NTDETECT.COM
boot.ini
grldr
MENU.LST
\ExtraFiles\*.*

:confused1:

This is in my view WRONG, you should ask for user confirmation. :cheers:
(and you can remove all /Y switches, unneeded when copy is run from batch :cheers:)
WARNING PSEUDOCODE, NEEDS testing:
SET Confirm=N

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. (

CLS

ECHO Do you want to copy bootfiles to the mounted image?

SET /P Confirm=

)

IF NOT /I %Confirm%.==Y. GOTO :SkipThis

FOR %%A in (NTLDR NTDETECT.COM boot.ini grldr MENU.LST) DO (

if exist .\BootFiles\%%A copy  .\BootFiles\%%A %drive%

)

xcopy .\ExtraFiles\*.* %drive% /s /y /e /h



:SkipThis

The xcopy command parameters and switches should be checked :cheers::
http://www.msfn.org/...8...0.html&st=9

Then, one may add a switch, like /npcf for "No Prompts & Copy Files", to allow for file copying when called with all parameters.

/y switches deleted from copy command, sorry very old habit.
xcopy was added switches, we do chicken right now i hope :confused1:
ps:
at topic http://www.msfn.org/...8...0.html&st=9 i couldnt find CDCheck utility from this link: http://www.elpros.si/CDCheck/ . Maybe company change or they decide not to give this utility anymore!

This should mean that in "interactive mode", NO matter what the user actually wants, you "force" him to copy:

:cheers:

This is in my view WRONG, you should ask for user confirmation. :cheers:


In my defense,
if a user create a folder \BootFiles\ and put files in it, and
if a user create a folder \ExtraFiles\ and put files in it, than it means user want these files to be copied.
In my usage i rename folder when i dont want to copy files, which will be very understandable for a new user because at first there are no \BootFiles\ or \ExtraFiles\ folder.

Also
In interface asking user "Do you want to copy bootfiles to the mounted image?" will be useless if there is no such folder created and files added. (maybe boot files files can be checked and if one exists this question can be asked and a check of extrafiles folder may/may not be necessary)

Ideas are for to share, not to argue, please dont think that i dont like the idea of confirmation, i only share my ideas.
By making some modification I wrote this and checked working

SET Confirm=Y

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. (

CLS

ECHO Do you want to copy bootfiles and extra files to the mounted image?

ECHO	For YES press any key

ECHO	For NO press N

SET /P Confirm=

)

IF /I NOT %Confirm%==Y GOTO :Skipcopybootextrafiles

FOR %%A in (NTLDR NTDETECT.COM boot.ini grldr MENU.LST) DO (

if exist .\BootFiles\%%A copy  .\BootFiles\%%A %drive%

)

xcopy .\ExtraFiles\*.* %drive%\*.* /i /s /e /r /v /k /f /c /h

:Skipcopybootextrafiles

I use SET Confirm=Y because as i wrote before, i assume if user create folder and put files, user wants to copy files without prompt. But also i have opposite scenario in mind that results opposite.

probably more perfect solution for your offer is

one may add a switch, like /npcf

or more precisely having 2 switches for bootfiles and extrafiles + checking bootfiles files if exist to ask copy confirm + check extra files folder existand check to ask another question to copy files



So for now, i decide not to add this lines and let user decide to have(or not) these folders/files in directory, or switch by renaming folders which is really easy/practical.

No need whatsoever to "defend" yourself. :confused1:

What about:

If NOT EXIST .\bootfiles\nul.ext :Skipcopybootextrafiles

If NOT EXIST .\ExtraFiles\nul.ext :Skipcopybootextrafiles

Good idea, with some changes i made, Please confirm this code Capitan, i will add after your confirmation.

[codebox] If NOT EXIST .\BootFiles goto :Skipcopybootextrafiles SET Confirm=Y IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. ( CLS ECHO Do you want to copy BootFiles to the mounted image? ECHO For YES press any key (or just ENTER) ECHO For NO press N and ENTER SET /P Confirm= ) IF /I NOT %Confirm%==Y GOTO :Skipcopybootextrafiles FOR %%A in (NTLDR NTDETECT.COM boot.ini grldr MENU.LST) DO ( if exist .\BootFiles\%%A copy .\BootFiles\%%A %drive% ) :Skipcopybootfiles If NOT EXIST .\ExtraFiles goto :Skipcopyextrafiles SET Confirm=Y IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. ( CLS ECHO Do you want to copy ExtraFiles to the mounted image? ECHO For YES press any key (or just ENTER) ECHO For NO press N and ENTER SET /P Confirm=
)
xcopy .\ExtraFiles\*.* %drive%\*.* /i /s /e /r /v /k /f /c /h

:confused1:

But again, something like this:
If NOT EXIST .\BootFiles goto :Skipcopybootextrafiles

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. CALL :docopyfiles Bootfiles

....

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. CALL :docopyfiles Extrafiles





....

:docopyfiles

SET Confirm=Y

CLS

ECHO Do you want to copy %1 to the mounted image?

ECHO	For YES press any key (or just ENTER)

ECHO	For NO press N and ENTER

SET /P Confirm=

IF /I NOT %Confirm%==Y GOTO :EOF

IF NOT %1.==BootFiles. GOTO :Skipbootfiles

FOR /F "tokens=1 delims=" %%A in ('DIR /b .\Bootfiles\' ) DO (

copy  .\BootFiles\%%A %drive%

)

:Skipbootfiles

IF NOT %1.==Extrafiles. GOTO :Skipextrafiles

xcopy .\%1\*.* %drive%\*.* /i /s /e /r /v /k /f /c /h

:Skipextrafiles

GOTO :EOF

.....

might be more "openminded", allowing to copy more files that the "usual" ones....

so instead of codes of post #39 , should i use this one (please check&confirm, as you know i use try/find method with trying hard to understand :confused1: )


If NOT EXIST .\BootFiles goto :Skipcopybootfilesxx

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. CALL :docopyfiles BootFiles

:Skipcopybootfilesxx

If NOT EXIST .\ExtraFiles goto :Skipcopyextrafilesxx

IF /I NOT %NoPrompts%.==/np. CALL :docopyfiles Extrafiles

:Skipcopyextrafilesxx

goto :Skipcopyfilesxx

:docopyfiles

SET Confirm=Y

CLS

ECHO Do you want to copy %1 to the mounted image?

ECHO	For YES press any key (or just ENTER)

ECHO	For NO press N and ENTER

SET /P Confirm=

IF /I NOT %Confirm%==Y GOTO :EOF

IF NOT %1.==BootFiles. GOTO :Skipbootfiles

FOR /F "tokens=1 delims=" %%A in ('DIR /b .\Bootfiles\' ) DO (

copy /y .\BootFiles\%%A %drive%

Well, yes :confused1:, though I do not understand why you want to keep the :docopyfiles, which is a sub-routine, or if you prefer a "function", inside the "main" program. :cheers:

Theoretically a program is more readable (and snippets form it more easily "porteble"/"reusable") the more it has a "small" main part and a number of sub-routines.

http://www.boot-land...?...=2958&st=15
though I think that it is mainly "flattery", I hope to not offend anyone, as it is really not intended :confused1:, but sometimes I think to appear like some kind of "civilized" explorer marooned off to a shore where the natives get bewildered by the lighting of a match (unrealistically dry after the wreckage of the ship and the long swim :cheers:). :cheers:

I find that the little things I try to share are mostly known, easily findable, very rarely I "produce" something that is "new", or "original", I simply try to keep together the bits and pieces related to a very "narrow" topic, basically the MBR and bootsector: 512 + 512 bytes, and a handful of files, NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM, BOOT.INI, grldr and menu.lst....
