Hello!

I'm just trying to install UBCD on my USB stick, but i have few problems.
At first i tried install UBCD using Universal-USB-Installer, all went ok, UBCD started, but when i tried to start some application i got a message:
Code:
Aborted, Cd-rom support disabled (type "cdrom to enable)
Of course i tried to type cdrom but it won't work.

So next i decided to use tutorial from this forum: This one. After unzipping ubcd503.iso and installed it correctly (for sure, everything gone excellent) i restarted my computer, but USB-stick won't work, i just see Win XP loading screen. I changed everything in BIOS, computer first look for USB-ZIP drive, then for CD-Rom, and then for hard drive). I tried also install grub4dos from RMPrepUSB and make a menu.lst:
Code:
title UBCD 5
find --set-root /ubcd50rc2.iso
map /ubcd50rc2.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

but it still doesn't work.
Can anyone help?

First, check your ubcd iso with the checksums at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html .

If your download has both those checksums, then expand the iso image (with 7-zip of IZarc) and follow the instructions at

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/customize.html where it says "Making UBCD memory stick". Both syslinux and grub4dos menus should be fine if you don't change/customize anything in the extracted ubcd.

The "ubcd2usb" script is the most simple way to make your ubcd stick.

Optionally, after expanding the original iso image (the one that was checked with the checksums) and before running the ubcd2iso script, you can run the scripts to update the antivirus' databases, or customize UBCD according to the same "customize" page, or the wiki, or several tutorials posted in this forum.

@StopSpazzing,

according to his post:

Quote:
So next i decided to use tutorial from this forum: This one.


he already tried that procedure, but something went wrong for him. That is why I suggested to use the script.

Either:

A) He hasn't followed the exact steps (maybe he thinks he has), or;

B) There is some software problem (Windows?, RM's tool?, other?), or;

C) The download of ubcd503.iso had a problem (that's why I suggested the checksums), or;

D) He has a hardware problem; maybe the usb connection, or the usb flashdrive itself (the RM's tool has the option to check the actual size of the flashdrive, in case it is a "fake" one), or;

E) He has a combination of the above possible problems.

Since the original poster hasn't report back his results with the ubcd2usb script, nor the checksums, we can't know if he resolved the problem (yet).

You can typically force boot a option, depending on your system ofcourse. Such as my asus board, f12 will give me boot options and then I select USB device. But that would mean your bios would have to support USB booting, and you may have to enable it in BIOS.

Maybe you should try USB-Floppy or USB-HDD or other USB options? (There are also USB Legacy options in the BIOS, for example).

That menu won't find ubcd50rc2.iso, for 2 reasons. First, the iso image name you downloaded is for version 503: ubcd503.iso. Second, either you
A) unzipped the iso image as you said, and used the method described in the wiki to put ubcd in your USB, so ubcd503.iso is not there in the usb, or;

B) the iso image shouldn't be unzipped and you used the alternative method of RM's tool, with the complete iso in the usb.

So, you have to follow the instructions correctly (choose one method only; that's why I suggested to follow the script instructions), and you need to configure the BIOS correctly.
