Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

FWIW, your system seems to be using an InsydeH20 firmware, which is not a BIOS but a UEFI one. The tools in UBCD are mostly for BIOS, so you might have some "CSM" or "BIOS Legacy" mode or similar, somewhere (in the "advanced" tab maybe?, or in the "boot" one?). You wouldn't be able to boot UBCD at a...

Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

The code, 0x80, means the first HDD. There are commands to boot a specific partition boot sector (instead of loading the boot code in the MBR, for example), but this is not our case. The command is simply chain-loading to the MBR of your first HDD. Since the system successfully boots by using this c...

Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

When you select (with the arrow keys) the "localboot" option that works for you in UBCD, and before you press "ENTER", please press "TAB". That action should show the Syslinux command line that would be used by that menu entry. Could you please post the exact command? Additionally, how are you booti...

Re: How can I incorporate a fix from UBCD onto the computer?

Before doing anything in your BIOS, write down the settings that are in use. Since using a chain-load method (from UBCD to your main drive) works OK, it seems that all you need to do is to set your main drive as first place in the boot priority settings in your BIOS. If necessary, use the options to...

Re: Wont recognize Seagate

Have you checked with Dell? Have you checked with Seagate? If your system is using pure UEFI (i.e. no legacy BIOS / CSM support) then any DOS-based tool will fail. If you can still boot into Windows, you might want to check the Windows version of Seatools (but, if your HDD is already failing, then i...

Re: UBCD Live V0.2.3b available for download

This time I tested with VMware Player 6.0.3, and with VirtualBox 4.2.24. The behavior I described can be seen in both. In both cases I used low resources for the guest (e.g. screen resolution up to 1024x768 or lower, 384 MiB RAM being shared for video too). Using the "failsafe" boot menu doesn't cha...

FWIW, I attached the ISO image to a VM and used it as boot device. I am unable to see the applications menu (what in a Windows OS is known as "the start menu"). When clicking on the menu button / icon, a very minimal rectangle (almost a horizontal line) can be seen, but no action can be actually per...

Re: Include older version of IBM/Hitachi Feature Tool

Do you "believe" that the feature is available in some specific older version? Maybe it is included in some other version (instead / too)? And how the setting is "persistent" when it is being set under certain OS but not when it is changed by using a different OS? An older version of a tool that is ...

More than a year between posts, your statements are still vague.

I would consider this a customization, at best.

Re: UBCD V5.3.5 available for download

No, my instructions were for UBCD. OK. The (linked) topic in question was originally about UBCDLive, so perhaps the distinction was not clear enough in that context. A different approach could be to add to the "readme" link to a (pinned) topic here in the forum, with instructions and comments. Such...

Partimage updated to 0.6.9 Certainly not new. Perhaps the version in the UBCD web page was not updated? Hasn't been updated because it is part of Parted Magic, which hasn't been updated for awhile. I will see if I can update it with a module in the next release. But partimage 0.6.9 is from 2010, an...
