if i use dd to copy an entire disk image to another disk will the defect list on the target
disk be overwritten?
We are downloading from the web to linux an image file that contains
DOS boot files as well as some other files. We'd like to use dd to
convert the file to a floppy to make the floppy a DOS bootable disk.
Is this event possible?
dd seems to expand the image file correctly, but the floppy is not
bootable and cannot be accessed by anything other than linux.
Here's the steps we've taken:
1) mkfs.msdos /dev/fd0
2) dd if=disk1.img of=/mnt/floppy
An ls on /mnt/floppy shows all of the exploded files but the floppy
cannot be used to reboot.
OR, is there a way to make a dos bootable disk from linux?
