    In open file dialog, field filename type *.* and hit enter. That will show all files.

    Hi Stane,

    fdisk shows First sector instead of First cylinder and the minimum is 2048. How can I input cylinder instead of sector?


    Edit: Found it. Apparently you must specify -u=cylinders as a command line option

    good point. I made tutorial on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, on newer linux distros you have to specify that additional parameter. Will update pdf...

    hi stane
    I hope you would update the pdf file "linux and WinHex"

    another small thing
    i had to unmount first before doing partprobe.
    dunno if that should always be the case.

    hi stane

    I did the first part of the pdf document "linux" I downloaded to my PC "wubi.exe" link:
    Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx)
    but the second part "wenhex"
    * I could not do because : the bin file is not sported in "Clone Disk menu.
    plz help me

    Hi majed

    If it's because you can't see it in the browse menu, then like stane says you must enter *.* in the filename and press enter so you can see it. If it's because it gives you a bunch of warnings, you can ignore them. Just press OK for them.
    Also make sure you have a registered version of winhex - I think cloning is not available in the demo version.

    Hi kantoku, Stane
    I've done everything in the pdf, but I did not get the box to boot.
    red and blue lights only.
    I think my box is broken
    thanks anyway
