Re: UBCD V5.3.4 available for download

_ The volume label of fdubcd.img is (still) "FDUBCD150 " (that's 11 characters, uppercase). This is of course just a minor detail, and does not affect functionality. _ By zeroing out (aka. wiping with one pass only) the _empty_ space inside the fdubcd.img image (there are several ways to do this), ...

Re: UBCD V5.3.4 available for download

This matter brings up again an old discussion about the possibility of distributing an alternative torrent. In addition to the normal "ubcd<nnn>.iso", an alternative torrent with an updated "ubcd_extracted_for_torrent" directory could be published for each release, allowing downloads of changed fil...

Re: UBCD V5.3.4 available for download

I made an unfortunate mistake during this update, so both ASTRA and INTELPIU within DOSAPPS/FDUBCD were not updated as they should be. I have corrected the website (version numbers and changelog) to reflect this, and will push out a new release this weekend with the necessary corrections. Thanks to ...

Re: New Versions of Software

AFAIK, MemTest V6 is UEFI only, which cannot be integrated into UBCD.

Re: UBCD Live V0.2.2b available for download

If you are running UBCD Live from a USB memory stick, you can now easily persist all changes to the memory stick by doing the following: 1. Write the ISO image to the memory stick using Universal USB Installer or LinuxLive USB Creator . 2. In the root directory, you will find a tiny file called pers...

Re: UBCD Live V0.2.1b available for download

Out of curiosity, have you considered using Porteus as your base?
Yes, we had a long and hard discussion about this very topic here.

Re: A few comments about joining the forum

I apologize for the inconvenience you've been through. This measure was first introduced because the forum was overwhelmed by spammers! Even simple questions like "What is the color of snow?" was not working because I suspect the "intelligence"was being outsourced to spam farms in China or India. An...

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

Like I said, it's just me. I actually set the power button on my laptop to no-op. :D No choice. Three little monsters around the house.

But if you feel it absolutely has to do something, I think a proper power-down is the correct thing to do, since that's what a normal user would expect.

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

I am not a "heavy" user of CPUStress. I have only used it a handful of times helping friends burn-in their newly acquired desktops. I actually prefer the current no-action behaviour. Reason is because it is very easy to accidentally press the power button, especially if you have kids in the house. I...
