I'm looking for info on how to make an ultamite boot disk that'll boot multiple OSs, here's what I'm wanting.

vista x32x64
win7 x32x64

recovery console
f-secure rescue

I've got a SuperBoot DVD that has all versions of XP Pro/Home, Dell, IBM, etc.. Also has multiple utilities but it's from 2005. I tried to update it to sp3 but it came out way too big. How can I use Ultimate Boot CD to do this?

Hi cripp7,

See this thread:http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1931
It doesnt completely answer your question but it gives some more info with ubcd and multiple OS/diag/tools.

The Tool booting should be possible without too much trouble. Its a matter of mapping out WIM files and so on.

The OS booting on the other hand can be a problem. Vista and later bootloader only support single install.wim file. OK say you combine both archs and both OSes into a single install.wim file - The resulting file will be bigger than fat32 single file size limit (4GB). Support for NTFS syslinux booting is on syslinux dev mind but no guarantee when/if it will happen. Only semi-solid solution i have found for this is to use USB-HDD and create multiple partitions, keep the diagnostics/ubcd/tools on the first partition and then use syslinux to chainload the other partitions (which can be NTFS or whatever; the chainloading process does care).
