Hi guys - this is my first post!

I've just finished my first customisation of UBCD - not a bad first attempt however....

My test machine with (1Gb memory) is rather slow to boot my custom images (saved as .iso's) - namely EuroSoft PC Check 6.05 and my WinPE image. Is there anything I can do to speed it up? I'm hoping I'm missing something as I believe some of you have PC Check on your CDs. They're not gzipped which helps only a tiny bit.

The entry for my Eurosoft is below:

Code:
LABEL -
MENU LABEL Eurosoft PC Check
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/europccheck.iso
APPEND - iso raw
TEXT HELP
v6.05
ENDTEXT


Hope someone can help!!!

Cheers

Here it is - getting to this point is taking around 1-2 mins!

I forgot to mention, it fails at "copying files to ram", seems like something is preventing it to boot, or the Ram does fails at one moment ? Which tool do I have to use now ? Can I somehow use ubootcd to open a usb storage and launch "HDD regenerator" or some kind of memtest ?

You can run PLoP boot manager from UBCD and boot from USB even on PCs without support for USB booting.
