I'd like to mention a partition manager that I think "could" be potentially added to UBCD. If it is not added, then at least some user might want to consider it as a customization.

I'm talking about "Partition Logic". Its changelog is located at http://partitionlogic.org.uk/download/changelog.php#0.7. After several years of inactivity, it was updated in 2011.

The possible downloads include an ISO image and a floppy image.

Since it is based on an OS named "Visopsys" (a GPL one-man project), it may not have support for all types of hardware and filesystems, but it would probably support older IDE HDD using FAT. For other hardware and filesystems, the user should test it (I don't know).

So, since UBCD already includes many tools for old hardware, why this tool might be helpful for the user? Because of the GUI, at least. It is similar to other well-known GUI partitioning tools, but may need less resources (RAM, CPU). Evidently, command line (and simialr UI) tools already included in UBCD would need even less resources, but they are less "user-friendly" too.

Is this tool "essential" for UBCD? Of course not. It would be just another possibility. But it may be of some interest anyway.

Just a thought. I'd like to hear other opinions about it.

I've downloaded and tried to check it out several times over the last few years. It would usually not fully boot on most of the systems I've tested it on.

I guess it is very possible. Since it was updated on 2011FEB02, after some 4 years of no news, it may have add some support that it hadn't before.

I wouldn't expect it to work using SATA II, but maybe using IDE? I take that from reading the changelog. According to it, not "all" the features are working under "all common situations", but simple partitioning on IDE HDD should work.

If anyone could test the latest version using older hardware and comment...

Just tried the latest version. Same problem as before:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=245

I suspect the OS switches to 32-bit mode and cannot find the emulated hardware anymore.

The current version of grep (auxiliary tool) included in UBCD is 2.5.4 from mingw v4.1.

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/grep.htm also has v.2.5.4.

The current latest version of grep is 2.10 (2011NOV16).

The current http://nuwen.net/mingw.html version is 7.2 (2011AGO19) and includes a patched grep v.2.9.

To be clear, I have NOT tested the newer versions with the scripts of UBCD.
