comment How can I tell if my IP is static or assigned by DHCP on Windows 7?
It's still possible that at the time of IP-assigning, it was static/dhcp & registry was changed later... So this is not exactly reliable. But yes, at boot time, it would take static/dhcp based on this registry...

comment Should I use cat instead of dd here?
Yes, but pv will continuously keep putting progress information on stderr. If you want it to be only on-demand basis, then dd is an option.

comment How to check if a binary is 32 or 64 bit on Windows?
Looks like your 'file' binary itself is 32 bit. Hence it will not be able to detect 32 vs 64 bit. You need 64 bit version of file utility. Check here: cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-announce/2013-07/msg00030.html
