I have successfully customized a few programs to work with UBCD, but I am having trouble with some too. I am trying to add Powerquest drive image 3.01 and Powerquest Deploy Center Version 5.51 as well as a windows me boot disk. I have successfully added partition magic and another custom application to connect to a server. I think where I am doing something wrong is the command in the custom.scr it currently looks like this:

if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then memdisk /images/pmagic.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f2]); then memdisk /images/rdm.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f3]); then isolinux /images/pqdc551.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f4]); then isolinux /images/pqdi301.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f5]); then isolinux /images/winmeboot.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[esc]); then script main.scn

Where I have isolinux right now I had memdisk but that didn't work so i just tried isolinux. There doesn't seem to be much information or tutorials on how to customize this file, but everything else seems very well documented. The one thing that is common with the 3 that don't work is they all use a windows me boot disk for compatability reasons. The autoexec.bat file for say pqdc551 looks as follows, but I think it is ok:

[size=9]@ECHO OFF
SET DIRCMD=/O:N
path=\

IF "%config%"=="NOCD" GOTO QUIT
IF "%config%"=="NOCDUSBDOS" GOTO QUIT
IF "%config%"=="QUICK" GOTO QUIT

REM LH \MSCDEX.EXE /D:mscd001

:QUIT
echo.
IF "%config%"=="CDUSBDOS" GOTO NOPARALLELIDE
IF "%config%"=="NOCDUSBDOS" GOTO NOPARALLELIDE
IF "%config%"=="QUICK" GOTO QUICK
\IDE.EXE

:NOPARALLELIDE
REM ECHO.
REM ECHO Insert ImageCenter Disk 2 (Program)
REM ECHO.
REM ECHO.
REM ECHO *** Press Any Key to Continue ***
REM ECHO.
REM PAUSE >NUL

ECHO DeployCenter 5.51
ECHO Copyright 1994-2002, PowerQuest Corporation
ECHO All Rights Reserved.
ECHO.
ECHO Loading. Please wait...
ECHO.
PQIMGCTR
prompt $v$_Type PQIMGCTR and press ENTER to start ImageCenter.$_$P
GOTO DONE

:QUICK
prompt $v$_$P

:DONE

[/size]


Any info would be appreciated Thanks

I think you should be trying "diskemu /images/xxx.ima" and "bcdw boot
/images/xxx.ima", not isolinux.

Either one should work or is one better to use than the other for a windowsme boot disc image? Thanks

I would try "bcdw boot" first since it may be a little
faster; otherwise they should be the same.

Try to replace isolinux in your examples with:

"diskemu"
or
"bcdw Boot" (if running UBCD 3.3)
or
"bcdw" (if running UBCD <= 3.2)

when using bcdw or disk emu I get "Invalid BCDW command" or "Invalid DISKEMU command"

when using these will .IMA image files work with them or does bcdw need .img and diskemu need .iso

If bcdw doesn't work will bcdw boot work?

If I can get the windowsme boot disk to work then I can get the other two to work.

Please help thanks --Mike

Show us the lines you're using to boot. Also,
what version of UBCD are you using?

print " ULTIMATE BOOT CD VER 3.3 "
....
....
....
if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then memdisk /images/pmagic.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f2]); then memdisk /images/rdm.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f3]); then diskemu /images/pqdc551.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f4]); then bcdw /images/pqdi301.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[f5]); then bcdw /images/winmeboot.IMA
if ($lastKey == key[esc]); then script main.scn

Are the image extensions .IMA, .img, .iso particular to the commands memdisk, diskemu, bcdw??

I have one cdr left after about 20 coasters here trying to get it to work so i thought I would ask for some help and try to make this last cdr work

could it be something in the autoexec on the images that needs to be changed?
Just found an RW so I can continue my trying and experimenting.


I am using the UBCD Basic though if that makes any difference.

OK the bcdw boot worked for the windows me startup disk and the powerquest version 3.01 disk, but not ofr the Version 5.51 but I think i might have modified the autoexec.bat in that image so I will make another image of that and then go from there. Thanks for all the help!! I will let you know if everything worked out.

A few suggestions to avoid coasters:
1) Use a CDRW
2) Use Qemu. (See
viewtopic.php?t=172&highlight=qemu
for the command line I use.

> Are the image extensions .IMA, .img, .iso particular to the

IMA should be the same as IMG
IMA & IMG:
memdisk
bcdw
diskemu
ISO: (Not all ISO's can be booted with these commands)
diskemu
bcdw

For UBCD 3.3, use:
if ($lastKey == key[f5]); then bcdw boot /images/winmeboot.IMA

Ok I lied it works for everything and starts to boot the windows ME Startup disk and then I tink when it tries to create the virtual C: drive to put the diagnostic tools in it just hangs right after the message you get when you don't have a fat or fat32 partition on the drive. But I am impressed every other piece of software that I want on there works that I setup. Any one know why the ME startup disk hangs at that point? Is there something in the autoexec.bat on the image I have to change? I just want access to the drives and chkdsk and scandisk and fdisk. Doesn't matter if it creates the virtual drive to me.

Also anyone have any idea on how to put the 4 OS/2 Warp utilities floppies onto cd? It is 4 floppy's so I can't do it the same way as I did the others.

Thanks for all the help so far

I was always under the impression that Windows will not boot from the UBCD. If you want to integrate different version of Windows into one CD, you should be looking at: http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/
