    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?

    Thanks.

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

    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
