Hi Ottavio,

I'm just trying to generate Win98 and WinXP partitions in an image file that can be loaded by Bochs or iBochs in Android.  More detail is in the response to Frantisek.

I generated (after 2 weeks of trial & error) a Win98 partition about a month ago, and can add files with PowerISO, but don't know how to resize it.  I was also able to finally generate a WinXP loadable image that's large enough, but cannot add files to it.

Details are in the Frantisek response, but here I've attached images of PowerISO and Ultimate Imager.

I also used PowerISO to generate the WinXP iso, from a (legitimate) Setup CD, which was then used in Qemu to generate the partition in an empty image created by Boch's BxImage.

I don't mind paying a hundred or two hundred bucks (even more) for software that performs the entire process from start to finish, when we supply it a 98 or XP ISO.  So any suggestions in that area, are welcome.

I'm not able to add files or change anything with PowerISO.  If I open the 
c.img file with PowerISO and try to add a few files, PowerISO returns an error 
that it has to truncate dozens of folder names including C:\Windows.

Is there another tool I should be using to make changes to the partition like 
add files or install programs?

You mention 3rd party applications that are not part of qemu. What do
you want to achieve and how is that related to qemu?
