I am continually turning out 'coasters' trying to produce a copy of UBCD that will boot!
My next will be my eighth attempt.
I have downloaded the zip from 3 different mirror sites.
I have hash checked them all and been told they are all alright.
I have used the 'builder' to produce the iso file and used three different sets of burning software and all results have been ok with no errors or warnings.
All have burned successfully, and been verified, to a CD-R----but NONE of them will boot up!!!
They will not boot within Windows and I have a PC with a crashed version of XP pro and they will not boot in that. :evil:

Whatever am I doing wrong??

Are you referring to UBCD4win?
http://ubcd4win.com/

For UBCD (for dos), you don't need to build the iso yourself, the zip file already contains a working image, which you have to burn.

How did you burn the iso? If you put the CD-R in your CD/DVD drive, do you see the *.iso file or do you see several files and folders? If you see only an iso file, check the following link to burn it properly: http://iso.snoekonline.com/iso.htm.

See also the next link to check if you have configured your BIOS correctly:
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/faq.html

If it doesn't work after you have done and checked the things listed above (burned the cd correctly and have set your BIOS correctly), do the following:

Extract the ubcd.iso to c:\UBCD-extract\. (use 7zip, winrar, ...).

Download syslinux from http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/.
Extract the syslinux archive to "c:\syslinux\".

To update isolinux for the CD version
- Copy "c:\syslinux\core\isolinux.bin" to "C:\UBCD-extract\isolinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\menu.c32" to "C:\UBCD-extract\isolinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\modules\chain.c32" to "C:\UBCD-extract\isolinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\memdisk\memdisk" to "C:\UBCD-extract\isolinux\"

To update syslinux for the bootable USB key
- Copy "c:\syslinux\core\ldlinux.sys" to "C:\UBCD-extract\syslinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\mbr\mbr.bin" and "c:\syslinux\ldloader.bss" to "C:\UBCD-extract\tools\ubcd2usb\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\menu.c32" to "C:\UBCD-extract\syslinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\modules\chain.c32" to "C:\UBCD-extract\syslinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\memdisk\memdisk" to "C:\UBCD-extract\syslinux\"

Remaster the iso:
If you don't know how to do it, see http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1343.
