Retrieves the locations of boot sectors for a volume.

To perform this operation, call the DeviceIoControl function with the following parameters.

BOOL DeviceIoControl(
  (HANDLE) hDevice,              // handle to volume
  FSCTL_GET_BOOT_AREA_INFO,      // dwIoControlCode
  NULL,                          // input buffer
  0,                             // size of input buffer
  (LPVOID) lpOutBuffer,          // output buffer
  (DWORD) nOutBufferSize,        // size of output buffer
  (LPDWORD) lpBytesReturned,     // number of bytes returned
  (LPOVERLAPPED) lpOverlapped    // OVERLAPPED structure
);
