I'm sorry that I didn't share the idea sooner. Basically, when WinVBlock probes disks to see if they are the backing disk for the booted image file, there is no protection against probing the very disk we are trying to establish. I have to address this. I'm afraid that I cannot offer a work-around for now. The order that disks are probed is not determinable at this point, so if your USB disk would be probed after the WinVBlock-provided disk, then you get hung while probing the WinVBlock-provided disk and never reach the USB probe, which would succeed. Sorry.

Even if this is bad news in a way, I'm more than happy with this explanation, as long as the problem is understood smile.gif
Any chance this problem can be dealt with in future versions ? Please don't get me wrong, no pressure really... I'm naively asking the question, since I have absolutely no idea how difficult it is to fix it ! I'd be prepared to spend the time to do it myself if only I knew how !

I have an idea for why your USB scenario might be hanging and will keep this in mind for version 0.0.1.9.

We are currently at 0.0.1.8. Development occurs in spurts, when my evenings are free from the day-job's overflow, which has been frequent lately. Code can be tracked here[1].
