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.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

UBCD has several "Cloning" programs, you can find them in the menu under HDD/Disk Cloning. I've used EaseUs Disk Copy and others with little to no problems. The hard drive manufacturer's boot CDs usually have something for this such as Western Digitals DLG having Acronis True Image which is excellen...

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

Chances are the files are lost, drive is possibly dead. See if you can access the recovery partition when booting, I found forum posts showing F8 and F11. The timing can be a bit of a pain with some systems and when to hit the button. I usually keep hitting the key every couple seconds, mainly as th...

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

You can try to recover the partition, testdisk is included in PMagic... If your able to recover the partition you should be good, but I would still copy everything over to another drive and reload/restore.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

Did you check the MD5 of the ISO you downloaded?

Are you booting from a CD or USB?

You can try another Live CD/DVD or USB to copy over files.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

You can use GParted which is included in PMagic to re-partition the drive. There are several formatting utilities in UBCD but I usually use the OS I'm installing to do that. The recovery DVD will format and possibly partition the drive. If your system had a recovery partition it should re-create tha...

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

DFT (Drive Fitness Test) 4.16 is included in the latest UBCD but not sure which version is on the UBCD ISO you downloaded (UBCD4?) but it should be there AFAIK. I would run DFT and try that before using anything else.

Re: ubcd4 - hdd diagnostic results. now what ?

First thing I would suggest is to check all your connections, inside and out. Especially the drive connectors. During cleaning, if you were moving any wires around it is pretty easy to slightly dislodge the cables. After that if no improvement, I would probably boot to a live CD (PartedMagic include...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

I let it run for a while but never connected to the seeds. uTorrent was showing 2 then 1 seed but never connected to either and was showing 7 then 11 peers but only connected to 1 who showed as having 1% for over an hour.
