Hey there!


When I try to use dd to put the files on my partition I get this:

C:\>dd if=tiger-x86-flat.img of=\\?\Device\HarddiskVolume5 bs=32256 skip=1 --pro


rawwrite dd for windows version 0.5.

here's my partition table:

Disk 0 is now the selected disk.


DISKPART> list partition

Partition 2 Unknown 19 GB 59 GB

Partition 3 Extended 894 MB 78 GB
