Re: IBM/Hitachi Hard Drive Testing Tool query

Does it have anything to do with the mouse driver?

In UBCD V5.3.3, the mouse driver for Drive Fitness Test has been disabled in AUTOEXEC.BAT. See if it helps.

Now if only I could add parted magic to it and do a secure erase on several SSDs...
Which tool in Parted Magic do you use to do this?

Re: Parted Magic display problem

If you would like to try out a LiveCD that we've been working on (tentatively called "UBCD Live"): http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=25478#p25478 and provide feedback, that will be great. Eventually, we will have to replace Parted Magic, and "UBCD Live" is a possible candidate if ...

Re: UBCD V5.3.2 available for download

Shellshock fix for MSYS bash The new 'msys-1.0.dll" has a whole new bunch of dependencies I am not sure it's worthwhile to include, so I am going to KIV. Within the context of UBCD, the shellshock bug should have close to zero impact given the restricted use case. Testdisk and Photorec 7.0 WIP are ...

Re: Mouse driver Hitachi HDD diag

DFT has its own boot image, and is not based off FDUBCD.

Anyway, I have REM-ed out the mouse driver in AUTOEXEC.BAT for the next release and see how it goes. Don't think the mouse driver is crucial to the utility.

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

SpaceFM is not going to receive any additional features. If there is some serious bug report, then it _might_, _perhaps_, be fixed at some point. So, although I like SpaceFM and it is currently not failing, it might be wise to at least have an eye opened looking for some potential replacement in so...

Yes, just to confirm, "consoleblank=0" has been done. I wanted to also make sure nothing extra needs to be done in ...

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

Done. Change current directory to directory on USB memory stick where UBCD resides, then issue this command:

Code: Select all

rsync -rP www.ultimatebootcd.com::ubcd/* .
