Well I have been pulling my hair out with a boot problem and NTFS, I want to create a USB boot drive that once booted can give read/write access to a NTFS drive, the USB boot pen needs to be a command line boot disk not any GUI of any type, just like the good old days of a DOS boot disk.
I have looked at the following
NTFSPRO it is full of bugs I keep getting "hi I'm exception bla bla"
NTFS4DOS seems to work but it has a nag screen on the private version and I cannot find the premium version anywhere (happy to pay)
Linux (I am not into linux but if it worked I would be very happy) I have created several small Linux builds but ALL so far have some GUI or loads shed loads of drivers for networks etc.
Tried to create a boot disk as per MS site by http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305595 but this just does not work, after creating and booting it says "insert boot media" I think the instructions are wrong as it says just form disk so there is no MBR
Tried a few recovery CD's and utilities but nothing boots without GUI to a DOS like prompt and lets me have access to NTFS
Please Please Please Pleeeeeeeeaseeee help I think I can no longer see wood for trees with this and I hope someone will just say "it says just do this....."
