I am trying to install Chromium OS on my Windows computer as a secondary OS. I have already used Chrome OS on a live USB before by using Win32DiskImager which writes an image to a removable device.

However, now I want to install it on a bootable partition, but Win32DiskImager doesn't accept writing to a non-removable disk. How do you have a hard drive partition masquerade as a removable disk so that Win32DiskImager can write to it?

Thank you!

Basically, you don't – except maybe by writing a Windows device driver that does this, if drivers can do this...

Using a different image writer, such as dd, will be much easier than performing this kind of brain surgery.

dd if=myimage.iso of=\\.\e:
