Hey,

I installed UBCD on an USB-Stick, I noticed that there is an entry "User Images". Is there anywhere a guide how to add some own boot entries?

I would like to add a windows 7 installation dvd and an ubuntu live system.

Kind regards

You can add your custom entries in /ubcd/custom/custom.cfg (or in the UBCD config files /ubcd/menus/syslinux/)

For Windows 7/Vista, you need this:
Code:
LABEL win7
MENU LABEL Boot Windows Vista/2008/7 (bootmgr)
COM32 /boot/syslinux/chain.c32
APPEND ntldr=/bootmgr


You can't add Ubuntu live in its original form (with the nice boot menu), but if you know which options you select to boot it, I can try to give you the right command line.
Which version of Ubuntu?

You can read how the boot entries work, by donwloading the Syslinux package and by reading the documents in /doc.

Code:
LABEL ubuntulive
MENU LABEL Try Ubuntu 9.10 without any change to your computer
LINUX /ubcd/custom/ubuntu/vmlinuz
INITRD /ubcd/custom/ubuntu/initrd.lz
APPEND boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso quiet splash --

place the Ubuntu iso (ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso in the root of your USB stick (if you place it in /ubcd/images, adapt to: iso-scan/filename=/ubcd/image/ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso)
Extract the vmlinuz and initrd.lz in /casper folder of the ISO (use 7-zip) and place them in /ubcd/custom/ubuntu.
