Are you trying to mount the .img file to access its contents, or are
you trying to burn it onto an SD card for a RasPi?

That's a developer's build, from scratch. That's a good sign, and
yes, the Github repo is a work-in-progress.

I'm decompressing a copy on my laptop right now... just a moment...
The ByzPi image is a complete disk image with three partitions in it:
[drwho@windbringer tmp]$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/loop0
Disk /dev/loop0: 29.8 GiB, 32022462464 bytes, 62543872 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x000d2cae
Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type
/dev/loop0p1 * 2048 155647 153600 75M b W95 FAT32
/dev/loop0p2 155648 655359 499712 244M 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/loop0p3 655360 62541823 61886464 29.5G 83 Linux
It uses an original DOS partition table, which might be what's
throwing Windows. v8.1 might not have support for non-GPT partition
For what it's worth, there is only one Win32 partition on that disk
image, which corresponds to /boot in the OS. It's a VFAT file system,
which Windows 8.1 might not recognize anymore, either. It's been so
long since I've touched a Windows machine that I'm not up on the finer
points of its capabilities anymore. The other two partitions are a
standard Linux swap partition, and a standard Linux partition (neither
of which Windows would have any support for accessing).
If you can borrow someone's Win7 laptop and give it a go with a USB SD
card adapter, that'll help us figure out what's going on.
