Again I was unable to find out how to do this with the documentation on this website but was eventually able to stumble across the solution.

1. Extract the ubcd files from the iso
2. Copy all the files from i386 off your xp setup cd into the root of the ubcd (ie /ubcd/i386)
(If you just want a bootable recovery console I downloaded one some time ago as an iso with just the files required to run it, it is less than 10mb total. Unfortunately I have no idea now where i got it then.)
3. Get Bart's Bart's wxp10.zip: http://www.nu2.nu/download.php?sFile=wxp10.zip
4. From wxp10.zip copy w2ksect.bin win51 and win51ip to the root of ubcd
5. Go into i386 and delete bootfix.bin (unless you want to hit any key to boot from cd)
6. If for some reason you want more than one xp version on a disc rename i386 and then take a hex editor and replace any occurance of i386 in /w2ksect.bin and /i386/SETUPLDR.BIN with whatever you are naming your folder (probably a good idea to keep it short) this works fine with the recovery console only but i have no idea what additional settings would be required for a full xp install
7. In /custom/custom.cfg add the entry for winxp recovery console

LABEL recovery
MENU LABEL XP Recovery Console
KERNEL /w2ksect.bin
APPEND

Job done.

Links to Recovery.iso. Is this the ISO you're referring to?

Hi, thx for the link, I have dwlded it and integrated it with UBCD, but it seems that this one is for Home edition, do you know where we can probably dwld a Pro version one.

I have been using Bart's pro bin file, and I guess it's from the rc.iso that I am getting this Home message console. I will try Bart's home bin and will let you know of the results.

Cheers.

Off the top of my head I can't think of any reason why you'd need the Pro in the Recovery Console.

Using the ISO from MHarding, I was able to get this to work in UBCD3.4.4 by using "bcdw boot" on the file /i386/SETUPLDR.BIN rather than needing w2ksect.bin on the root of the CD. WIN51IC and WIN51 are still needed on the root of the CD or you won't be able to get to the console.

I have been following this tutorial but on my USB stick with ultimate boot cd on it. Now when I try to start XP it just gives the message:

CDBOOT: Couldn't find NTLDR

Is there something I can do about this?

Hi,

use option -N to mkisofs for cancel this message.

My command line under my linux is:
Code:
mkisofs -input-charset utf-8 -b  isolinux/isolinux.bin  -o madubcd.iso -no-emul-boot  -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -r -l -L -N  ubcd


That work fine !!!!

Hi all it's my first time here and I noticed this topic is over a year old. Just want to ask if this is about making a selection if you want to do a fresh install winxp or you can select the utilities and check the pc for problem then fix it? Sorry for my bad english and my ignorance. :oops: Thank you very much.

I followed henryjfry's instruction and I tested. But Windows Setup got the following error message. It is as follows.
"Please, insert the disk labeled Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 CD into Drive A: *Press ENTER when ready."
I inserted Windows XP Pro SP2 CD into drive. But Windows Setup won't continue to booting up Windows Recovery Console. Please, give your advice. Thanks.

I'm not sure if you need the WXP files root files on the root of the CD, or if the W2K ones will work, or if there are more files needed for XP SP3, but that would be my first guess.

I followed henryjfry's instruction, but it was a failure to boot up Windows Recovery Console.
I won't use XP SP3. Just I use XP SP2. But Windows Setup requires to insert Windows XP Professional SP2 CD to drive. I don't understand why the Windows Setup requires CD.

That work fine !!!!


Hello, I have the same problem.
I have try to do that :

Code:
LABEL xp_recovery
   MENU LABEL XP Recovery Console
   KERNEL /w2ksect.bin
   APPEND mkisofs -input-charset utf-8 -b  isolinux/isolinux.bin  -o madubcd.iso -no-emul-boot  -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -r -l -L -N  ubcd

but it doesn't work.

VinZz, I believe he is referring to editing ubcd2iso.bat to change the mkisofs switches, not the menu system.

* Press ENTER when ready
ENTER=Continue F3=Exit"
Please, give me your advice. Thank you in advance.

I finally solved Windows Recovery Console problem. Thank you for your kind help. But I am not sure Windows Recovery Console will be perfect for troubleshooting....I didn't try to use with CD for troubleshooting. Let me do it....Thanks.

ubcd2usb.bat would make your flash drive bootable, but it being that it does not involve mkisofs I am not sure how (or even if) you would need to edit it to proceed.
