Parted Magic doesn't start because it can't find pmagicxxxx.sqfs!
But, I download Parted Magic separately from the Parted Magic site and everything works fine!
Please fix this bug!

Maxwell.

I'm getting the same error, and am unsure how to proceed. I did not download anything separate, merely followed the instructions on the main page. When loading parted magic I tried all three options at the top of the box with the same results. I tried it on another computer and got the same result

Setting up system devices... DONE

Searching for PMAGIC_2013_08_01.SQFS...

The PMAGIC_2013_08_01.SQFS file could not be found. Report this incident to the forum and if possible attach a directory listing of the Media.

Example:

mount /def/sr0 /mnt
ls -lR /mnt


At least report the full path and name (including upper and lower case)
or the absense of any pmagic sqfs files.


You are now on the command line.
Commands like "ls", "cat", and "more" are at your disposal.
Use <Shift+PageUp/Down> to scroll up and down.
When done type "exit" to reoot the system.

bash-4.2#


I have no idea what path you want reported, but it's a stock extracted ubcd.iso right off mirror one. I'll keep poking at it. I haven't used UBCD in years, but I don't remember it being this fussy to use. Maybe it's just rose colored memories. :)

Hello,
Same issue in this location:

UBCD 5.3.2, started from a MultiSystem USB Key.
Please let us know if this issue is UBCD or rather PMagic related?

I don't understand why users assume this is a problem with UBCD, or originated in pmagic. If this were to be the case, many users would had complain already.

It is in fact related to how the USB drive is partitioned and/or formatted and/or how UBCD was transferred to the USB drive. This type of problems are typical of "multiboot" builders.

For instance, the fact that some tool claims to support UBCD and pmagic doesn't mean that it always succeeds. Perhaps it supported some version in the past, or perhaps simply the claim is inaccurate.

In other words, you might need to look for help in the respective websites of the tools you are using to build the ("multiboot") USB drive.

Hint: pmagic has some optional boot parameters regarding the location of the "pmodules" directory and/or the location of the ISO.
