Turns out that it's a missing PowerISO feature.  PowerIso is able to add files to a FAT32 images, but not an NTFS image.  Not yet.

From PowerISO Support:



Thank you for your message. Yes, we can replicate the problem. The current version of PowerISO can only open the NTFS partition in read only mode. It can not edit or save the image file with NTFS partition. We will try to fix the problem in future releases.

If you have any question or suggestion, please feel free to tell us.


I found a tablet with an intel processor.  After installing Wine, I'll forward pictures of the Windows interface, as well as pictures of Windows 98 on the Galaxy tablet in iBochs.

You're correct.  If you look at the tab in the previous attachment that displays Ultimate Imager and Win98, it is indeed Fat32.  I just took whatever the defaults were, in both cases.

"It is rather ironic that you're having a problem with long filenames
on NTFS = the partition produced by Windows XP."

No.  I don't think it has anything to do with long filenames.  It wants to rename C:\Windows - which is within 8 characters as '0', as I recall.

It's some other problem.  As you mentioned, PowerISO might not support NTFS, in exactly the way we expect.
