UBCD2USB: Copying files to USB KEY...
(ERROR) Missing 'F:\ubcd\tools\win32\ubcd2usb\ubcd2usb.cmd' (script did not run
As you see: Accessing physical drive: Zugriff verweigert (access denied) - I have no clue why...
I run the prog under Vista x64 as Administrator...
I currently don't have a clear and direct solution, and I don't have the means to reproduce the error, but I have some suggestions anyway.
1_ Even if you are the "Administrator", under Vista/Seven you should open a “cmd” box as follows:
Start -> Accessories -> Right-click on "Command Prompt" -> "Run as Administrator"
or some equivalent method.
What I mean is that logging in Windows as the "Administrator" or as a user that is part of the "Administrator Group" might not be enough.
2_ The specific path
may be a little bit problematic. If you could expand/extract the UBCD iso into a different "normal / common" path, like under "Documents" for example, I think it should be much better. Try expanding/extracting the UBCD ISO (with 7-zip) directly to the new location ("Documents"), instead
of "moving" the current folder ("C:\Users\Sebastian\Programme\UBCD\") to the new location.
3_ As you can read from your report, the MBR of your UFD is also not being successfully written. Since your UFD is around 2GB, there is a chance that the problem is related to the FAT32 file system. You can go to the UBCD wiki and read the tutorial about formatting your UFD with RMPrepUSB. The RMPrepUSB site also has several tutorials and YouTube videos (and part of them are related to UBCD) to follow the instructions.NOTE
: there are, generally speaking, 2 methods described in the RMPrepUSB tutorials and videos. One method copies the UBCD*.ISO "as-is". The other expands the content of the ISO into the UFD. The latter is the one we are talking about.
Once you have formatted your UFD to FAT32 and correctly installed your isolinux/syslinux MBR, then you can go back to run the ubcd2usb script, almost
as you ran it before, but withOUT the "/f" argument. The script will copy the necessary files to the UFD but it will avoid re-formatting it. Alternatively, you can copy the files by yourself (instead of using the script), since the UFD should be correctly formatted and the MBR installed using RMPrepUSB.
You can understand that there are many combinations of the tools available so to achieve each of the steps (format + MBR + copy), so a combination of alternative tools/methods and the ubcd2usb script can help you.
4_ You are using a 64-bits OS. I am not completely sure how much this point could influence, but you should know that all the isolinux/syslinux related files that are coming from the "Windows" folder of SYSLINUX 4.04 are from the "32-bits" folder. Also the ubcd2usb script uses tools (like "xcopy" and “format” for example) from the 32-bits version or Windows. Again, I don't know how much this point influences the result in your particular system (the “format” executable may be different, for example).
5_ You could also try the latest development version of UBCD (in the "announcement" section of the UBCD forum). The ubcd2usb script should be "more or less" the same as in UBCD503.ISO, but isolinux/syslinux related files have been updated, among others.
I have more suggestions/alternatives, but I'd rather receive some feedback from you first. If something on those UBCD wiki tutorials is not clear, or if RMPrepUSB fails in some way, or whatever issue you find in your way, please report back. And if you are successful, please report back too and describe your steps.
