Go to Dell.com and download a recent Dell Diagnostics package (I used the one from Dell E6400). Run the install and once it extracts it loads up a program that will either create you a bootable .img file (that you can then use the memdisk to load (it works), or it can create iso for you, or even ca...

In that case... party on.

Let me know when we can register to contribute. I would like to add some of the tutorials I have posted here (bootmgr, ubuntu, etc.). The current ubcd tutorial section hasn't had updates for a while.

Hi neoy,

Thats really good work. Can you post the source files (and what did you use to edit them with)?

I make a little custom build of UBCD and would love to be able to change the letters/text to match that build.

thanks,

Not sure if its possible but if run off USB is there a way to have it drop the uptime into a text file every X time (like every minute)?

Just think it will be a good thing to fallback to (check usb stick and it will have last uptime (maybe even a history of last 5?)

Personally I like the fact that UBCD formats the drive everytime. However a solid solution would be make ubcd2usb by default run only in a "upgrade mode". However if you want it to format the drive then throw out a switch. For example: ubcd2usb c:\ubcd e: This would simply upgrade/install UBCD to dr...

I use -f (force) and force FAT32 because i found it was the best way to get it to work with USB sticks and HDDs. Apparently it will not want to install syslinux to USBHDD unless syslinux is forced and the FAT32 is due to some obscure issue i encountered randomly. I have been using my build of UBCD w...

Icecube, In my version of UBCD I have modified the win32 ubcd2usb.cmd to this (line 50 specifically): Original format "%a2%" /v:%VOLUME_ID% /x /q New format "%a2%" /FS:fat32 /V:%VOLUME_ID% /x /q This always makes sure the UBCD installs onto a FAT32 partition (which would likely resolve this user's i...

Two questions: 1. Can you use diskpart or whatever and manually format the usb stick to fat32 with default options? It sounds like ubcd script doesnt force fat32 if fat is current. This might fix your problem/warning related to cluster size (which shouldnt be there). 2. What command are you using to...

You will need to read the forums and documentation a little more. It sounds like you are not sure what you are doing and I am not sure thats something we can/want to teach/fix here. To install to USB you need to run the ubcd2usb.cmd file located in the tools folder. It will take care of formatting t...

Not necessarily diagnostic tool but Microsoft Vista and later bootloader now support EFI (apparently). There is a folder called EFI in each cd/dvd. I suppose you could use Windows Recovery Environment and/or the windows built in memory test. Not much but just thought i would give you a heads up. ~ dpc

MEMDISK-ISO same as MEMDISK?

I noticed 5.0RC1 has a MEMDISK and a MEMDISK-ISO file. Is there any difference in the two? I was under the impression memdisk now supports iso booting.
