MBRWizard v.3.x Command Line
General Enhancements to the new MBRWizard 3.0 engine

  • Initial support for GPT (GUID Partition Table)
  • Removable Media Support (USB Flash Disks)
  • VMWare Disk (.vmdk) Support
  • Both internal disk support and display details have been increased to the PetaByte range
  • Added support for Vista, Server 2008, and Windows 7
Specific improvements to version 3.0In order to provide better support for the new disk types, we have restructured the command line parameters to afford this capability, and feel it provides more flexibility as we continue to add functionality. The following are the major changes to the CLI version:
  • Support for creating partitions has been added, including options to set the starting sector, size, sector aligment, and partition type
  • Initial support for GPT includes basic backup/recovery, and partition deletion
  • Added support for the VMware virtual disk format (.vmdk), including most operations supported on physical disks
  • Support for repairing a Windows 7 or Server 2008 MBR has been added
  • Explicit support for Removable media (USB Flash Drives, etc) has been added
  • Both internal and display sizes have been increased to the Petabyte range
  • Enhanced disk information, with detailed information for each disk.
  • In addition to partition number, partitions can now be selected by volume label, drive letter, or by type (boot, system, utility, diag)
