Hi

I am following the instructions so as to customize the UBCD but after extracting the downloadable iso to drive c I cannot open the custom.cfg file so as to add my bootable images. Do I create these images with Magic ISO? I have tried extracting the UBCD iso with 7 zip then added AVGs floppy files into the custom directory then remade as a bootable iso with Magic ISO however it jst says bad checksum.

I must add I am a total newb to thid but desperately wanna learn to make a bootable antivirus with current updates!

Hello and welcome :D

Here's how I'd do it :

- install a virtual drive (Daemon Tools, VirtualCloneDrive, etc ... whichever you prefer... that can always be useful even though you can do it without)
- mount the ISO to that drive
- copy / paste all the contents of the virtual drive to a dedicated directory
- unmount your image from the virtual drive to be sure you don't try doing stuff on it (which you can't ^^ )
- add your floppy images to the "custom" directory
- edit the custom.cfg file from there using notepad
- open a command window in <wherever you copied the files>\tools\ubcd2iso
- run ubcd2iso without parameter so you see what the syntax is
- now run it with the parameters you want to create your customized ISO :]

Being a total newb I am unsure quite what to put under 'LABEL boot img' when editing with notepad?

MENU LABEL
KERNEL
&
APPEND

How & why do I need to run ubcdiso without parameter so as to see the syntax?

Is the parameters to create a customized iso:

ubcd2iso c:\ubcd c:\ubcd40.iso from cmd prompt :?:

I've always typed out the full file name but that should work... If not try ubcd2iso.bat c:\ubcd c:\ubcd40.iso

Here are some of my added bootable images - hope they help..

LABEL dos62
MENU LABEL DOS 6.2 BOOT DISK
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/dos62.igz
LABEL w95_org
MENU LABEL Win 95 Original
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/w95_org.igz
LABEL w95osr2
MENU LABEL Win 95 OSR2
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/w95osr2.igz
LABEL w98
MENU LABEL Win 98
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/w98.igz
LABEL w98se
MENU LABEL Win 98 Second Edition
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/w98se.igz
LABEL winme
MENU LABEL Win ME Boot Disk
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/winme.igz
LABEL wxpboot
MENU LABEL Win XP Boot Disk
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/wxpboot.igz
LABEL CDROMGOD
MENU LABEL CD-ROM GOD CD Boot Disk
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/CDROMGOD.igz

Sometimes you have to add some switches to memdisk, just do a search of the forum for the switches suck as raw or floppy...

I opened cmd and typed <c:\ubcd>\tools\ubcd2iso

But the syntax comes back as incorrect. I am running Win2k, does that matter?

I tried manually adding cmd to the context menu so as to open in the ubcd folder (step 7: "- open a command window in <wherever you copied the files>\tools\ubcd2iso"), if that is what you meant? But no joy.

EDIT: Adding cmd to the context menu don't work in Win2k Pro. Have to edit the registry & add this key:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
\Directory\shell\Command]
@=""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
\Directory\shell\Command\command]
@="cmd.exe \\\"%1\\\""

Gulp! How the hell do I do that without knackerating my machine? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

If you can open a command prompt your set, just change what you typed to: C:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso>ubcd2iso c:\ubcd c:\ubcd\ubcd40.iso

if your at "c:\>" just type:

"cd ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso" to get to the correct directory....

if at "c:\ubcd>" type cd tools\ubcd2iso to get to directory...

I go to Run type cmd and it comes up with:

None of those commands work from here? I have copied & pasted them, honest guv!

Type: "cd.." at the prompt - 2 times if you have to - that should put you at the c:\>....

Then at the c:\> type "cd ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso - make sure not to forget the \...

UBCD2ISO: Bootable UBCD ISO image has been created

Cannot load VDM IPX/SPX support
Press any key to continue . . .

C:\UBCD\tools\ubcd2iso>

Should I worry about the VDM IPX/SPX support?

There she blows on my C drive anyways I guess I jst go ahead & burn her with BurnCDCC.

Another thing, do I need a startup.bat file in with the AVG iso to get it to run as a DOS app?

At the moment after selecting AVG from custom tools she hangs at loading boot sector...booting...

Any ideas???

I gather there is an UBCD with AVG already on it, is this correct? I could jst update the definitions, though I thought I had the latest version of UBCD.

AVG is windows based, you can try using UBCD4Win if you need it. It's already included in the project, but you will have to build that CD, it's not a pre-made ISO. You'll need a windows XP source. For UBCD (DOS) you'll be better off just removing the AVG plugin - unless I'm wrong and it does/can work....

Yeah I have jst come to the same conclusion!

Ah well I thought it was possible to use the files created when using the recovery disk option within AVG.

"AVG Rescue Disk is an indispensable tool that can save your data in the event of damage to system areas, or a virus infection that cannot be remedied within the Microsoft Windows environment. Rescue Disk enables you to remove viruses or restore system areas from the MS DOS environment. It includes a DOS version of the AVG system, a backup of system areas, and the system files which allow the computer to be started from the diskette (creating a 'system diskette')."

Maybe I need to include the system files as well? Though I thought that peculiar to each individual computer?

Tho I jst saw this???

"Please note: If you are using the NTFS file system the Rescue Disk has only limited functionality! In case you have launched the system from the 'system diskette', any disks using NTFS will be inaccessible, and therefore not testable. You may want to only use the Rescue Disk in Windows emergency mode if the AVG system on your local disk is not available for some reason."

AVG Rescue Disk is not supported by Windows XP and higher operating systems!

Ah well, worth a try. Hey can you point me in the direction of how to update McAfee & F-Prot? Also I was told there is a paid up version of an antivirus solution that will actually make a bootable DOS CD? That would be worth buying.

For McAfee - Go to ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/an ... c/datfiles and download the latest dat-xxxx.zip file extact and put into the /dosapps/mcafee directory.

For F-Prot - I go to http://www.claymania.com/f-prot.html - download the latest fp-def.zip file and extract and put into dosapps/fprot directory.

not sure if these are the best sources or procedures but have been doing it this way for a few months...

Hope that helps....

You can update bughunter too, http://bughunter.it-mate.co.uk/
