ms-sys is a Linux program for writing Microsoft compatible boot records. The program does the same as Microsoft's "fdisk /mbr" to a hard disk or "sys d:" to a floppy or FAT32 partition, except that it does not copy any system files (only the boot record is written).
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: Adds support for syslinux GPT MBR. Updates the syslinux MBR to version 6.02.
Release Notes: This release adds experimental support for the Windows 7 NTFS boot record. Unfortunately, writing such a boot record with ms-sys is not useful if the intention is to get a bootable partition.
Release Notes: A sanity check is now done before only writing the BPB to a FAT32 partition.
Release Notes: This release adds support for large disk image files. This version is now considered stable, as the BPB problem has had a workaround since version 2.1.5.
Release Notes: This release adds support for manually setting the number of heads in BPB.
