WinImage does write its own stuff into the boot sector, so the image you get is not 100% exact. Not sure if you can disable this "feature" as I haven't used it in a long time.
I heard about this a couple of time and I'm all ears, however, whenever I tried to confirm that, I failed.
The floppy image created by WinImage and a Freeware floppy imager was the same each time.
How is it possible to force this "feature" to occur?
Edit: Could it be that WinImage changes the boot sector if you create a blank image in WinImage?
Ie, when selecting 1,44 MB diskette format, then use drag&drop to insert files?
That would make sense, that there's a custom boot sector. In the DOS days, quite a few diskettes had displayed a
custom boot text if being booted from (disk was accidentally left in A: drive during boot).
