For bootman the bootman boot loader stage 1 is written into the MBR sector and stage 2 is written to one sector after the MBR sector using /dev/disk/ata/0/master/raw with a single write(...) operation (about 950 bytes). After the write operation completes however only the first 512 bytes have been written. Is /dev/disk/ata/0/master/raw limited to the MBR sector only?
