Wake-on-LAN

Wake-on-LAN is a nifty obscure feature of most computers. When enabled in BIOS, a special "magic packet" can be sent to the LAN port from another computer using the MAC address, and the computer will turn on. A router etc network infrastructure is not even required -- a simple direct peer-to-peer Ca...

poweroff shutdown menu command

Please add a poweroff/shutdown command to the main menu or submenu. It is somewhat inconvenient and very obscure now, to have to research FreeDOS to learn to use the poweroff command to simply shut a computer off! Why does anyone need to turn their computer off this way? Maybe the power switch is un...

Wrong md5sum

That is the wrong md5sum -- that is the one from rc1.

The md5sum of this ubcd50rc2.iso file seems to be:
42d07a5708c7cc08c6c23a551d0b5613

Is that correct? Please edit the base sticky announcement post accordingly.

Trying to get memory SPD from Parted Magic

I've been exploring the Parted Magic in UBCD50B12 today. It is not easy to start this PM. On ASUS P4PE with Toshiba LCD TV there is great trouble with the 1360x768 video mode, a common Linux problem. Sometimes it is possible to get a display, but the default fonts are so small they are almost imposs...

Parted Magic nifty; add lm-sensors and more Linux!

Today discovered Parted Magic in UBCD50B12 -- this is not just a partitioning tool, but a whole nifty mini-Linux LiveCD hidden in UBCD! A little idea that might make it even niftier: include lm-sensors package, so that RAM SPD data could be accessed. A bigger idea: Mostly, when I burn UBCD on CD, I ...

UBCD v3.4 contains v4.9.0 of DOS Navigator (2004). The current version seems to be DN OSP 6.4.0. Maybe update?

Also, the DN link listed at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/index.html is broken. The current links are:

3.4 Invalid Opcode

Something has gone wrong from 3.3 to 3.4, a little step backward. UBCD 3.3 seems more compatible with more computers than UBCD 3.4! On certain computers, only some 3.4 programs will start properly, but the same programs will start OK with 3.3. AIDA16 fails to start with: Invalid Opcode at 0688 4F01 ...
