I'm seeing DrT's issue too with ver 1.81

I checked bootitbm.ini on the UFD and the Product Key has been truncated. About 40% of the key is missing. All OK if you edit bootitbm.ini.

which exact one?

I see the DOS version field won't allow input of the new longer keys, only
the old shorter BIBM key.

Which one is allowing the key and wrong in the .ini

??

I was using TBOSDT UEFI. It produces a bootitbm.ini

C:\Program Files (x86)\TeraByte Drive Image Backup and Restore Suite\TeraByte OSD Tool Suite Pro\uefi


Edit... I didn't notice before but the key becomes truncated when it is pasted into the key field.

oh, okay, yes, that is only the makedisk.cfg file needing adjustment.

but the old BIBM key would still fit. the new one wouldn't, you'd change
the 16 to 29 referencing key in that file.

it's updated for the next release already.

Hit yet another obstacle. I cannot change the Boot mode to legacy. It
seems to be stuck on UEFI. The text is black, not the blue of
changeable items. Looks as if I am stuck.
