The first thing that comes to mind is Is really F: where your usb key is? Yes of course ;) But my key seems to be a little bit special. In fact, this key is recognized by the explorer as two drives : a floppy disk drive 1.44 mb and a "normal" USB key. I try to understand why this key is like that...

According to the guys at makebootfat, by using the -Y option you overcome the 1GB limitation: Enforce the syslinux 3.xx FAT support. Syslinux 3.00 supports all the FAT types and sizes but it requires a special customisation of the boot sector and of the file `ldlinux.sys'. This option does this cus...

Thanks Erwin, that's clear and I should be able to do it now :lol: :oops: What I'm looking to do first, is how to partition my 2 GB key with 200 MB for UBCD. And one more point, by the way... I managed to include two Acronis software in my UBCD : TrueImage and DiskDirector. Would it be difficult to ...

Thank you Erwin for helping newbies like me. I just have to understand now what does mean Just unzip to a new directory. Then go to that directory and run 'ubcd2usb <path-to-ubcd> <usb-drive>' :oops: :? This may be very clear for knowledge people, but I'm not sure of the exact way of doing this. And...

Maybe there is a way to create more than one partition in the USB key if it is larger than 1 GB... Yep, it's what I was thinking about :wink: And by the way, do you think it would be possible to improve (and be easiest) the way of proceeding to get a UBUSB-Key (a new procedure like Victor says abov...

I actually tested it with a Flash Drive, aka USB key (a Cruzer Micro 256MB, to be specific). I also did some minor testing with a Compact Flash connected to a card reader. So I guess anything under 1GB connected to an USB port should work. Syslinux has the limitation of the 1GB limit. I also think ...

Ok I think I am ready to explain how to create the Ultimate UBCD on a USB drive... As I was reading your post once again, I realized that you were talking about USB Drive , as I did that poll about USB keys. So if you're really talking about an USB Hard Disk Drive, is it the same way of proceeding ...

Yes you're certainly right dhscholtus, but I don't know how to proceed... :oops:

Would it be difficult to give some explanation of how to do it ?

Well, I was not talking about "boot" as a file but as directory which is at the root of the CD, like "images" for instance. :wink: For DDS, my mistake was just a "keyboard mistake" :oops: So now, everything seems to run smoothly... until I change something else :lol: Thank you very much for your kin...

Ok, that was my mistake : "Boot" is a command and not the directory.

But, that's funny because it works fine with TI and not with DDS. The Menu screen comes back after 1 or 2 seconds of black screen, when choosing "d" (in my case)

I maybe have an answer to this problem.

The word "Boot" in your excerpt may be a part of the command, and not the directory of UBCD.

I'll try with Boot kept before /images/Outils_Acronis/trueimg.iso

Am I right ?

Yes I'm running UBCD 3.3. For example, this is what there's in hdd.scn # # Actions # getkey clear if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then memdisk /images/maxblast.igz if ($lastKey == key[f2]); then memdisk /images/diskmgr.igz if ($lastKey == key[f3]); then memdisk /images/discwiz.igz if ($lastKey == key[f4])...

Hello Charles... again... I wrote something like your if ($lastKey == key[a]); then bcdw Boot /cba/trueimg.iso if ($lastKey == key[d]); then bcdw Boot /cba/diskdir.iso in my custom.scn. Things seem to go fine, but I've an "Invalid bcdw command". I saw in other .scn that usually, it is "memdisk" in l...
