Sorry for the delay (been busy as hell moving house). I will attempt to issue an updated image for both FreeDOS AND MS-DOS within the next 7 days.

Just keep bugging me in case I fall behind.

But i'm now more interested in Windows 2000. It looks good for my pc. :P :D Do it!

Sounds good. Having the app on the drive, and just finding a way to find it sounds like a good solution. I'm not familiar with xgrep or lmod. Can these search drives for a specific file? Quite easily. For instance, suppose isolinux passes the following variable to memdisk as follows UBCDCMD=HDDUP.E...

@as702 Can't you give a autoexec.bat file that searches all available drives for the path /dosapps/hddup/ , changes the current directory to it and runs hddup.exe . You can grab the right path from the memdisk command with getargs.com. Yeah, I use a similar method in NwDsk for UBCD4.11 and UBCD5.0b...

I think the problem lies in the answer to "You should be able to direct any write operations to the USB stick directly". I have no control over what directory temp files are written to. The author designed the latest version to be on a bootable USB drive all by itself, and I assume writes to the cu...

I don't think I understand. The program will easily fit in a 1.44 floppy image, but if it's in an image, I'm guessing I won't be able to write to to the image. True, but you should be able to save directly to the USB stick amirite? (-; Put simply, create a boot disk which runs to your desired spec....

Hmm...you could get rid of PESUE easily enough. However, the boot disk requires a ramdisk driver, which in turn, relies on there being a memory manager present. One solution would be to write your own boot disk with a custom config.sys and autoexec.bat. Would the program fit on a 1.44/2.88Mb image? ...

No worries. What we can do is reach a close approximation to your desired modus operandi . Firstly, look for the file /etc/global.set. From there, you can configure how the associated modules behave. For example, to disable CD-ROM prompt AND to disable auto-installation, insert the following: CDROM_...

Re: Installing to USB Drive and writing to program directory

I'm trying to install a small program into UBCD, installed on a USB drive, so that it can write back to it's directory. I've put the program in the DOSAPPS directory, and I think that part of it is OK (I'm not sure, I've never gone this far in customizing UBCD). Sounds good. The second problem is.....

Should be under Partitioning Tools. Contained within there exist plenty of alternatives in order to format your drive (FDISK, XDISK, GParted etc).

You could always contact Microsoft or the manufacturer of your laptop to see if you can obtain a replacement CD that way.

In the meantime, try the suggestions I posted earlier if you can.

This is bizarre. Irrespective of how your hard disk is formatted, the Windows XP installation CD should boot regardless; the fact that UBCD manages to boot makes the problem all the more confusing. Are you sure your installation CD is genuine or hasn't been damaged in any way? Can you test the CD on...
