The entry I have in the menu cfg is: LABEL puppy MENU LABEL Puppy Linux V2.17 KERNEL /puppy/vmlin...

How about using a virtual floppy drive? I haven't had to go that route before but worth a suggestion..

Hope that helps,

I've been able to get up to version 2.15CE to work, but 2.16 and the new 2.17 keep getting an error " unable to find cd". I've tried the pmedia=cd and idecd and they don't work. Has anyone been able to get the last couple versions of Puppy to work with UBCD?

TIA,

You'll be able to see the drive in a native linux environment and you could use GParted or other partitioning software to clear the partition/drive if needed. You should be able to run some other ...

You'll just have to do a manual search, they are listed. I'm getting a list of 12 of which numbers 9 and 10 are exactly what came with my MS keyboards.

Does the other link work?

Most USB keyboards have a PS2 converter that is included with the keyboard, if you have that converter you can try it.. As far as the BIOS entry, I've seen the Legacy setting on just about all the systems I've looked at, but I haven't checked out many new systems for this setting.. What kind of moth...

Try running the memtest over night, sometimes it will be fine for a few iterations and then start to have problems.. I usually will run Memtest86 and/or Memtest86+ for at least 12+ hours before I consider the memory relatively error free.. One thing to try also is to disconnect all components that a...

Your confusing the UBCD (DOS) and UBCD4Win projects.. If you updated/built a DOS version UBCD and don't plan on updating again - sure.. If you downloaded and built a UBCD4Win CD you can also un-install but if you want to do updates in the future you may want to keep the project in place.. Either way...

Supported floppy image files

Hello, I've done a few searches on the problem I'm having and keep finding the same post, which don't quite answer my question. I want to include some boot disks (ie - DOS 6.2, Win95, Win98, etc.) I converted the image files to .img and edited the costum.cfg file with: LABEL dos62 MENU LABEL DOS 6.2...
