 -bsl:N  Set broadcast speed limit to N MBits/sec
 -cmdline  Show the command line parameters in text mode
 -cfgfile:{NAME.EN_US}  Set the configuration filename (default is lastrun.cfg)
 -cX  Set compression type: X={off|size|balanced|speed}
 -dpos{1-2}  Specify the desired disk position if a disk will be removed after imaging

 -forcegui  Force the GUI wizard to appear even if it doesn't have to
 -forceoem  Force the OEM partition to be restored even if it exists on the destination
 -forcebf  Force boot fixup in cases where it does not normally occur
