This is an offshoot of.. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=1432510#post1432510 I imaged a 2048 sector offset partition with IFD and was able to restored it as either a 2048 sector offset or a 63 sector offset partition. Here are the details. I set BING to "Align 2048" and deselected "Align on End" and "CHS alternative" I then created a 1004 MB NTFS partition The starting LBA was 24563712 (24563712/2048=11994) Sectors in the partition 2056192 (2056192/2048=1004) Using IFD, I created an image of the partition Then booted into BING and deleted the partition Using IFD, the image was restored to the unallocated space, the geometry settings being (Align on End) (Align End by Resizing) The restored starting LBA was 24563385 (24563385/16065=1529) Sectors in the partition 2056320 (2056320/16065=128 ) I could also delete the partition and restore the image using the geometry setting of (Use 2048 Sector Alignment) and it happened. You could use whichever alignment you liked as long as the partition was deleted prior to the restore. I realize Goldorak will be starting with a 63 sector offset partition but I'm sure the method will work.
