I was overly anxious in posting a separate question on a different stream "UBCD 5.1 is now available for download":
"Hi: I am new to the UBCD, having just downloaded V5.1.1 and created the bootable DVD-CD from the ISO image file. Although I do have a previous version of the UBCD from PC Tools, circa Oct 2007, I was never comfortable using it without a user guide. I used it only for memory tests on my old Win XP SP3 desktop. Now I need to be able to check my WD internal HD (HP dv9820us laptop, Vista x64) for bad sectors, hopefully with the capability to repair them, since my WD diagnostic program and my SeaTools for Windows programs have each detected a bad sector in this internal drive. I was unable to use, successfully, a bootable CD for the SeaTools for DOS which I had downloaded (but I understand from another source that this tool might not handle my SATA-connected internal WD HD). However, I would be grateful for access to a User Guide for the hard disk tools on the UBCD 5.1.1 DVD-CD. Thanks, in advance, for any assistance in this matter. Appreciatively, Arbyem"
I also used chkdsk/f on each of the two partitioned drives of my internal WD HD, with no anomalies being reported.
I did not check the wiki hot-links because my problem is different from the original one in this stream.
I would be most grateful for access to a User Guide, or similar source of instructions for use of the UBCD 5.1.1 bootable CD. I also downloaded UBCD4win.iso, but my Zone Alarm Extreme Security reported an alleged set of three viruses, so I uninstalled it. Can the UBCVD 5.1.1 be booted up and used with Vista x64? Thanks again, with apologies for the second related post in the "UBCD 5.1 is now available for download" steam - which I will terminate.
