    this works for me, I'm using the same setup as you, 1 drive with 2 partitions, it's command line but if you read through the thread and find my batch file setup, it should work really easily, just drag your ISO on top of the batch file and it'll find your partition and copy it over correctly.

    EDIT:found my post

    figured a super easy way to do it.

    on the same drive that I have my ISO's and my WBFS I created a folder called WBFS and put the wbfs.exe cygwin1.dll in the folder, then I created a batch file called wbfs.bat in that .bat file I put

    @echo off
    wbfs.exe -p 0 add %1

    I then created a shortcut to that file on my desktop. now all that I have to do is drag my ISO files onto the shortcut and the program does its magic. super easy.

    you make it yourself, it's just like you would a .txt file, but rename the extension .bat
