Did you also notice the bit where the last software release was in July 2010? And that was a Beta.
This may be a problem. The source code is provided and GPL, but it is in Delphi.We would need a Delphi hacker with access to a Windows 7 64-bit machine.
There do not appear to be any other open-source projects that allow a raw disk to be read and written under Windows 7 64-bit, or indeed any other Windows versions.
There are a couple of commercial offerings, but even they don't have a drop-in replacement.
Those chaps sell a library that can do the job. If someone approached them right, they might be willing to develop an application and provide it free of charge in return for the generated PR. It would not be open-source of course.
Doesn't sound too good - there is a windd program on sourceforge but according to the comments it is something else altogether
I haven't tried this at all but I remembered something about this on a blog I read
They suggested that you use something called

I hope this helps.....
Looks like a nice program but I expect you'll need to resize the partitions etc. manually with this program (is the automatic resize due to fedora image itself or the installer?)
I don't like the sound of this part either:
The main gotcha is that although your computer has a builtin sd card reader/writer and it works with your cellphone or camera sd card perfectly well it might not work for creating a bootable sd. The biggest problem builtin sd card reader/writer is the ricoh one in HP laptops although other makes of sd card hardware and laptops also have this problem. When you use a builtin reader/writer and it is goingto fail it doesn't always tell you that it's failed so the first thing you now something is wrong is that your raspberry pi (or other target device) won't boot So although you have a builtin sd card reader/writer it is a good idea to get hold of a USB SD card reader/writer and use that for making your bootable SD card. [I have no real idea why builtin reader/writers have problems making bootable sd cards but my thinking is that the controller in the builtin ones was cut down for windows machines to save a few pennies as noone thought that they'd want to write to the 0 to xxxx areas of the SD card]
