WinUAE can no longer be used to prepare a CF card for a real Amiga?

Current versions of WinUAE no longer have the -disableharddrivesafetycheck option but allow to write to a drive only if there are no Windows partitions on it.

However, thumb drives and card readers are treated by Windows as removable drives. Windows Disk Management does not allow to delete partitions from those drives and DiskPart does not show these drives at all.

I don't see any other Windows built-in method to erase flash drives for use with WinUAE.

My suggestion is either to change the "block zero write attempted" requester to have a Yes / No choice so that the user has an option to write to the disk nevertheless. Or to add an option to the "Add Harddrive" window to erase the MBR from the disk.
