    All peaceful!

    I had a good encounter with Raxco support after copy produced some errors: very helpful: all fixed so far.

    Thought I would lob a little question:

    If I set up a multiboot system, would FDISR have a role protecting each partition I booted into?

    I imagine I would have to install FDISR to each bootable partition?

    Likely conflict with IFW/IFD/Bing as imager if BINg installed as boot manager?

    Regards.

    The FD-ISR pre-boot code in the MBR contains the exact disk sector for the $ISR.BIN file.
    Even when you are able to hide your current system partition and renumber the second primary partition, it won't work.
    The reason is that FD-ISR isn't reading the NTFS file table in order to find that $ISR.BIN in the current system partition.

    HHmmm
    Sounds a bit complex :(
    That might be nice!

    Also love to have CD or floppy boot option: maybe that way could access FDISR in different boot partitions if required. Or is that nonsense?

    @f3x, thanks, sorry didn't see that.

    Regards.
