Re: Phantom boot record

Sounds like another Boot option was added. Try running msconfig and check the Boot tab. If you have 2 entries that points to that being the issue. With Windows 7 you will probably have to use bcdedit instead. Open an elevated command prompt and type bcdedit --> In the lower section see what it shows.

Re: Disk controller failure

A disk controller failure usually indicates that UBCD boot disk image that is being used doesn't have a driver for the interface controller which the HDD is connected to. You can try downloading the newest version from the manufacturer and use that. https://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?DL If that ...

Re: UBCD Flashing then crash

Give us a bit more. What is the manufacturer/model. BIOS or UEFI? Could be so many things like overheating, Ram, etc. Try disconnecting all drives and re-seating RAM and see if it will boot to the BIOS. Can you get into the setup/BIOS/UEFI screen?

Re: restoration help

What did you use to create the image?

Also, what are the PC specs? Is it BIOS or UEFI?

Re: MHDD.CFG Edit Not Possible VIA "edit" OR "notepad" in CLI

1. Is their a Seagate utility available to do this? I do prefer using a tool provided by the manufacturer if at all possible. 2. What are your system specs? 3. Encryption on any drive can be tricky as it's for security and doesn't always prove to be doable, in my experience. When you try to access t...

Re: How to edit registry/disable Automatic Restart on failure

Hard drives can be replaced but it could be other issues as well. With new PCs/Laptops having UEFI instead of older BIOS some diagnostic tool such as UBCD may not work. If you still have info/files on the drive you should try to get that first. If you can't get a Live/PE boot disk/USB to work you ca...

Re: How to edit registry/disable Automatic Restart on failure

The first thing I would do is get any files that are important off, if possible. Use a boot CD/DVD/USB such as https://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ubcdlive.html or any other Linux Live CD or PE (Preinstalled Environment) or even boot UBCD and select PartedMagic and try that. Next, check the drive using t...

Re: UBCD v4/v5 - developed in parallel?

Development on V4 ended some time ago and V5 has slowed over the last few years.

That being said, if you want to post updates/suggestions go for it. Just note what version is pertinent to the updates.

Re: A couple of seconds of scan my computer hangs

Are you booting UBCD, UBCD4Win or some other Live Environment or are you running these from your installed OS? What is your installed OS? What are your system specs (manufacturer/model)?

Re: A tool to check

I generally run "chkdsk c: /f or /r" or if that doesn't seem to help I use Manufacturer's Diag tools to check the drive although, I do often just go straight for the Diag tools.

What are you trying to diagnose/fix? More info is always good.

Re: Newbie Question. UB Next HD during boot etc

Check this out ---> https://www.supergrubdisk.org/super-grub2-disk/

A version is included in UBCD under HDD/Boot Management or you can download the newest version that recently came out.

You could also try PLoP, which I've also used in the past which will be in the same menu area.

Re: Trouble with a Hitachi HDD

What are you trying to do? A bit more info would be helpful such as what is happening that you are trying to correct, drive model, OS, etc.

If you want to run the manufacturer's diagnosis ---> Drive Fitness Test for Hitachi can be found under HDD---> Diagnosis.

Re: Adding WinPE based ISOs to UBCD

Often the ISO is extracted to the root of the drive so the boot loader works.
