Re: Boot UBCD on laptop with UEFI and NO legacy boot option

Considering that almost all the tools included in UBCD (version 5.3.8. ) depend on using BIOS (or CSM aka "legacy mode"), not UEFI, there is not much to do after booting UBCD in UEFI mode anyway.

Re: Why Gparted loads fail safe mode but not other?

You could also try using the latest version(s) of GParted Live:

Re: Asus laptop BIOS does not recognize UBCD

Your system normally boots with UEFI, not BIOS. Please note that UBCD 5.3.7 does not support UEFI boot. If you have a UEFI machine, please remember to temporarily enable CSM (aka "legacy mode") in your firmware. For UBCD, in your firmware/bios temporarily disable "secure boot", "fast boot" and simil...

Re: [patch] ubcd2iso.sh errors: I/O redirection; ISO level

Regarding ISO9660 level 4, it is supported by mkisofs (search for an updated mkisofs' manual) from cdrtools . So, "level 4" is an adequate option for UBCD, especially considering that advance users would be using the script so as to generate a customized UBCD. Now, for the main issue... When using t...

Re: [patch] ubcd2iso.sh errors: I/O redirection; ISO level

When using the script "as-is", without patching it, what is the actual problem that you see? Does the resulting ISO image fail in any way as it is right now in UBCD version 5.3.7 ?

Re: UEFI boot

Everything has pros and cons. Who is going to invest their own time to make this happen (a third bootloader)? Who is going to maintain it? Who is going to support users requesting even more (while the tools cannot take advantage of it)? And the additional MB in the ISO image? The storage and bandwid...

Re: UEFI boot

What you are suggesting is not that simple as you would think. Additionally, the tools included in UBCD are not prepared to run in UEFI mode (not even the Linux distro included). In practice, booting in UEFI mode is not as straightforward as the theory claims it is. Then, every time it fails, users ...

This is an important one for UBCD: FreeDOS 1.2 was just released.

Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

FWIW, your system seems to be using an InsydeH20 firmware, which is not a BIOS but a UEFI one. The tools in UBCD are mostly for BIOS, so you might have some "CSM" or "BIOS Legacy" mode or similar, somewhere (in the "advanced" tab maybe?, or in the "boot" one?). You wouldn't be able to boot UBCD at a...

Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

The code, 0x80, means the first HDD. There are commands to boot a specific partition boot sector (instead of loading the boot code in the MBR, for example), but this is not our case. The command is simply chain-loading to the MBR of your first HDD. Since the system successfully boots by using this c...

Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

Before doing anything in your BIOS, write down the settings that are in use. Since using a chain-load method (from UBCD to your main drive) works OK, it seems that all you need to do is to set your main drive as first place in the boot priority settings in your BIOS. If necessary, use the options to...
