Dell's 32 Bit Diagnostics v1282
are useful tools in troubleshooting Dell systems. Here's how to add it to the CD:
1) In UBCD\dosapps
create a folder named Dell1282
and extract Dell's "Hard-Drive file format" download into it. (CZ128200.exe
, not cdd_1282.iso
2) In the Dell1282
folder create a file called startup.bat
. Put this text in the file:
3) Edit your menu file under UBCD\boot\menus
) to include this line:
if ($lastKey == key[d]); then set method = "memdisk"; then set image = "fdubcd"; then set target = "Dell1282"; then script launch.scn
Please note this is a single line. Add the option in the menu system above as well so you can see which key to press to launch it.
print " [D] Dell Diagnostics 1282
This line should have the "s line up on both sides of the screen.
4) Compile your updated UBCD with the batch file mkubcd.bat
Thanks to baronvonfoxbat7734 for his suggestion to use the Hard Disk files rather than the ISO.
This method does not have the mouse crash issue.
