Did you try all CDROM drivers manually?

There is a workaround (boot a little ISO with only the Freedos image and the dosapps):
Download: http://ubcd.stopspazzing.com/downloads/ ... bcd.iso.gz

Place fdubcd.iso.gz in your extracted UBCD directory:
Code:
ubcd/images/fdubcd.iso.gz

Add the following to ubcd/menus/syslinux/main.cfg and ubcd/menus/isolinux/main.cfg:
Code:
LABEL ubcd502dosiso
MENU LABEL Boot DOS apps of UBCD502
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/images/fdubcd.iso.gz
APPEND iso raw

See the wiki for more info about remastering the iso:

That works great. Thank you. :mrgreen:

This should be added the next release until they can get it worked out.
