When you boot the ISO in a virtual machine or the cd on a real PC, you see the following:
* Normal Mode (linux)
I got the linux part working:
* Safe Mode (dos)
* Low-Graphics Safe Mode(dos)
* Floppy disk
* Hard disk 0 MBR
* Find OSes on your hard disks
You need only the initrd.gz
file for it.
Copy them to c:\ubcd-extract\custom\paragon\
Edit the c:\ubcd-extract\custom\custom.cfg
MENU LABEL ..
MENU LABEL Paragon Partition Manager v9.0
APPEND initrd=/custom/paragon/initrd.gz splash=silent vga=0x314 medialable=UBCD411
If it doesn't boot on certain PCs, you can add the noapic
parmeter to the append line (press TAB when you want to edit the line on boot time).
APPEND initrd=/custom/paragon/initrd.gz splash=silent vga=0x314 medialable=UBCD411 noapic
If the PC's for which you want to use it, have enough memory (128MB isn't enough to run a program, I think. 256MB should be enough), you only need the linux version.For the dos part:
It doesn't work (only partly).
Copy the dos.img to c:\ubcd-extract\custom\paragon\
Put the other files in c:\ubcd-extract\
, except for dos.img, initrd.gz and vmlinuzp.
MENU LABEL Paragon Partition Manager v9.0 (Save Mode)
APPEND initrd=/custom/paragondos.img paragon_lang=en
It boots, but it says "Recovey media error".
The emulated floppy doesn't find the CD (memdisk emulates a floppy image).
In the autoexec.bat
there is a CDDRIVE variable, which is empty by default. I suspect that the CDDRIVE variable gets it value by the cd_plg.exe
I tried to make a superfloppy (which contains \dos and the files inside the dos.img), but it didn't boot.
You can try to make a large floppy image yourself (don't know if it will work) and add the following line in autoexec.bat
(e.g.: after the 'doslang' line):
