Also, would you consider making QEMUMenu.bat work with "dd for Win32"
as well as it works with Zitu's program. dd for Win32 is available
here: http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/rawwrite/dd.htm

The advantage it has over mkqemuimage.exe is that it can make any size
images, at least so far as I can tell. The logic John Newbigin emailed
goes as follows:

Then why not fixing mkqemuimage.exe to do that too ?


I hope I didn't offend anyone and I definitely didn't mean to imply that
dd for Win32 was somehow better than mkqemuimage.exe. Honestly, I don't
know anything about mkqemuimage--someone on the Mepis forum suggested
using dd so I investigated how to do that on Windows. Is there a good
reason to use mkqemuimage instead of dd for Win32? I have no idea how to
adjust mkqemuimage so that it meets my needs, but if someone else wants to
take on that project I suspect I'm one of many people who would be


Is there a particular reason to not use qemu-img.exe?
mkqemuimage is perhaps much simpler to use but have this 2G limit and only
output raw images.

Anyway this is a nice tool that have been created for making empty images
to use with qemu on windows instead of borrowing one from another project.

OOops, sorry, I wanted to say that qemu-img.exe should be used instead of other tools as it handles all images formats that QEMU supports and some manipulations like AES encryption and compression.
