Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Hehe, "project cpu-tests for newer pc-s" has now come to a final and happy end indeed ! All is well, I have a fine running ubcd503-custom, and last (but not least), I have gained valuable experience and really enjoyed our conversation. My next plan is to explore linux further, but looking forward to...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Hehe, you are absolutly correct. I misunderstood the first screen after having made selection of the 3 programs. In bold blue it displays cpustress v2, and I thought then that it was the 3rd selection when i choose the first selection. See now that this is a COMMON screen before a fresh boot of the ...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

hm, so its working ok with you and not with me ? Is it the cfg code that takes care of the selection between the 3 programs or is it the lst-code? Any suggestions for what I could try now ? Being an oldtimer (I dont dare tell you how old I am) having been engaged with data processing since the days ...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Hehe, things are improving ! 1. Removed the # from the lines you mentioned in cfg and lst files. 2. Burned a new custom iso. 3. Screen now look fine, 3 choices for cpu-testing under "user defined". and each of the three choices show all 4 info-lines at the bottom in green. 4. Seems also much faster ...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Thanks again. Have tested the custom-version further: 1. Initial menu is exactly as non-custom version. 2. Selecting "user defined" brings up a screen with blue background in upper half of screen, with left and right margins shrunk approx. 5 centimeters (black outside) 3. Can select 3 programs (burn...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Wow ! YES ! Followed your instructions, and managed to burn a custom iso 5.03. Three new programs were available under "user defined", all three choices came up on a blue background. The explaining text for each program came a bit low on the screen, missing the last lines. ENTER for selected program...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Very sorry that you "lost me", I certainly have got mixed up, and can only thank you from my heart that you still have the patience to follow me. Here is what I did: 1. Booted the standard ubcd 5.03 2. Followed icecubes instructions to the letter, that is selecting "cpu", then select "cpu-burn-in", ...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

I am afraid my linux knowledge is not good, to say the least. I now have two bootable cd-s, one with ubcd 5.03 (not midified in any way by me), and one with Parted Magic (from your download link). The last one seems fine by itself, but I miss cpu-burn-in programs there. So what I really wanted is to...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

YES, your tip for cpu-burn-in seems to work. Changed the linux-sentence as requested (small spelling error :cpustres needs two s-letters at the end), and cpustress2 starts running (by erik lindahl), found 8 cores, and starts performing. Am a bit unsure though how to burn a final cd-version with the ...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Thanks again for your reply. "new builds" : I am building new pc-s from time to time for friends, family etc. etc. Before installing windows i want to test these new pc-s, and have in the past been using ubcd for extensive testing of cpu, mem etc. Found it better to find possible errors or weakness ...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Thanks again for swift reply. What are we trying to achieve ? In this case, burn-in test BEFORE windows-install. (to verify that new builds work ok). Ok, so there are newer versions of several programs. Any links for download you can recommend ? And how do include new versions into a new bootable ub...

Re: ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Thanks for reply. Tested further: cpu-burn-in 1.0 : No newer versions available. The linux flashing displays (among other things): "bios bug: i/o apic#0 id is 16 in the mpc table, fixing it to 0. tell your hardware vendor". It then goes on, and locks up after some lines with :"pci -----" Tried the s...

ubcd 5.03 locks up at all cpu-tests

Have ubcd 4 and ubcd 5 and ubcd 5.03. All perform fine for cpu-test (mersenne, burn in, etc), on all old pc-s (socket 478, athlon). BUT: A brand new i7-950 on gigabyte Ga-x58-ud7 has problems (same on all 3 mentioned versions): All memtests run fine. But all cpu-test locks up after some initial load...
