I have got UBCD 3.4 and tried creating a customized bootable cd with Powerquest Partition Magic 8.0. I have followed the steps as shown in http://www.ultimatebootcd.com. I have wasted more than 10 cd's. I can boot to the UBCD menu but when it try to start Partition Magic ... nothing happens ... no error is shown....

Kindly help

you should use cdrw before burning it to cdr. :wink:

put thepartition magic 8 floppy image in the \image folder then goto boot\menus open up a *.scn file and add a line

Code: Select all

[F1] Partition Magic 8
then add a line

Code: Select all

if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then bcdw boot /images/pmagic.ima
or whatever you name your image file to in the last part

if ($lastKey == key[8]); then memdisk \custom\PM8.IMA
works for me.
