Re: DVD drive reads DVD when booting but no UBCD menu shown

Not a problem.

I just try to "give back" when I can as this project has been very useful over the years. If it really helps you, consider donating.

Re: DVD drive reads DVD when booting but no UBCD menu shown

This would probably be best posted in "Support and Troubleshooting". As to your question/issue... Is this system BIOS or UEFI based? If UEFI, that may be your main problem. What CSM settings for boot device? Can you try booting in a BIOS based system to confirm that the CD/DVD is working? black scre...

Re: UEFI boot

Many people will not read this. This is the true and sad fact about many free resources available on the internet. Users that are unwilling to READ before USE. I've recommended UBCD for so long and to so many people that I've lost count but I always tell those people to "READ" the instructions or r...

Re: Black screen when I am waiting for Parted Magic to setup

UEFI support is currently buggy at best as most of the tools in UBCD are designed for BIOS based systems.

You can search the forum for some suggestions regarding CSM settings to try to get it to boot but still not sure what programs/tools are going to work correctly if at all.

Re: How long it takes to "secure erase" an SSD using UBCD?

Is this a multi pass erase? If so, you are just using up limited writes to the drive.

Some info on wiping HDDs and SSDs.

Re: Requested Changes

UBCD is Linux/DOS based programs. You may be looking for UBCD4Win but that project has stopped all activity. There are projects available to create "live / PE" environments similar to UBCD4Win but using more recent Windows versions. Avira has a free bootable/live CD available as do many others. http...

Re: Can I put a subset of UBCD on a 256MB USB drive?

I've stripped the PartedMagic on a couple builds when I was adding to multi-boot CDs/DVDs and USB drives which had PartedMagic already. I think I got the base image down to around 200MB. Just remove the PartedMagic files and edit the required config files and rebuild.

Re: Problems with copying to drive

I've used Testdisk in the past with great success for just this issue. Although, Windows 10 is newer and may have some possible issues with file system and such with testdisk. But definitely worth a shot. Testdisk in included with PartedMagic but you could also install/run it from your Linux install...

Re: Broadcom drivers

It would help to post at the Opensuse site.

If you have a wired connection available, you could try updating the system that way and maybe you'll get the driver for the wifi.

Good luck...

Re: UBCD and Photorec _ Can not see another destination Dis

I had the same issue with testdisk/photorec a couple years back.

I ran testdisk/photorec with "sudo" and it worked fine.
In terminal, type "sudo photorec" and type in the password when asked.

Good luck.

Re: Flashing AMI BIOS

It's been a while but the last time I did this, I copied the update program and firmware update to a USB drive or the on board hard drive and booted into freedos and ran it with no problems. If your system is BIOS it should work fine. If your system is UEFI all bets are off as I haven't worked on an...

Re: Having issues adding ISOs to UBCD 5

As I recall your Ophcrack "tables" directory has to be in the root of the boot device. When using Yumi, I actually install the "Notables" version and create a "tables" directory at root and then put the various tables extracted folders in the "tables" directory.

Re: CPUstress image: Power button behavior (opinions please)

If your going to enable it, either way works for me but I do usually shut down after doing burn-in testing. Could you enable a popup that offered both options and a cancel? To be honest, I haven't used CPUstress in quite a while.

Re: Restore to factory default.

You can usually contact the manufacturer (Gateway) and get a restore set mailed to you but they will probably charge you. Sometimes you can find the CDs/DVDs on the internet on sites like Craigslist, Ebay, etc.

Good luck...

Re: Is it possible to host the latest EXPLODED ISO of UBCD?

Generally speaking (and FWIW), I am not "comfortable" with distributing scripts to delete / replace files. The risk of deleting some (part of a) customized version is always there. @ Victor , For future versions, perhaps you might want to consider providing xdelta downloads in addition to whole ISO...

Re: searching for pmagic sqfs

Not sure if you found this thread but it worked for me. Although I haven't checked to see if anything was different with the new versions of YUMI.
