Hello,

first thanx to wimb and the Boot-Land Team for publishing this helpful tool.
I wanted to check the tool, but there is a rootkit Malware "dummy.sys" in your file, which has been found by my Antivir programm avast 4.8 Home Edition?
What is the background of it??

regards
Dariush

It's a false positive, unless you are downloading from some other place.

Dummydisk.sys is a filter driver by Anton Bassov, as well as rdummy.sys.

(for the record, in this case, the "Boot-Land Team" has nothing to do with the procedure, though most members involved are at the same time here, on 911CD and on MSFN, the project was developed at MSFN):

There are two of them, "normal" one (that makes a removable USB device appear as Fixed) and a "reversed" one (that makes a Fixed device appear as Removable).

MY congratulation to everyone who was involved in this project.
I tested it and IT WORKS !!!!
My Problem was an IBM thinkpad X22 without an CD-ROM drive. I have succeeded to install Win XP on it. Another problem was that the BIOS of my laptop had not the newest update, and when I tried to boot from USB that I had prepare with your tool, my BIOS did not recognize my harddisk, when an USB drive was pluuged in. So I put out my hard drive and boot from USB, and at that point when Windows setup loaded I put my hard drive in. PUUUUh. I spent a lot of time to find this workaround.
Now I am happy. Thanx a lot.

best regards
Dariush
