Speaking about the new UBCD version, there is a problem booting Norton Ghost 8.* floppies.
I tried to make a custom UBCD 4.0, with the same floppy image I used with 3.* versions.
It seems to load fine, up to the Ghost GUI, and then it stops working.
Tested with Ghost 8 & 8.3, on 2 physical machines, and 1 VMWare.
After some more tests, it seems that the problem comes from the memdisk version embedded in the new UBCD.
I tried to add the old memdisk as memdisk0 from the UBCD 3.3, and then the 2 Ghost versions worked!
So I searched memdisk web site.
On UBCD 4.0, the version of memdisk is 3.35.
On memdisk website (http://syslinux.zytor.com/history.php
) I read :
Changes in 3.35:
MEMDISK: Turn on EDD support by default.
Changes in 3.36:
MEMDISK: Disable EDD by default on floppy disks. EDD can be enabled with the edd option and disabled with noedd. This (hopefully) should make Ghost work again.
So, it seems the chosen version was the bad one
I haven't tried the new memdisk version yet, but FYI, EasyRecovery disk was also having problems booting with 3.35 (and works with old version), so maybe many issues with UBCD 4.0 come from EDD (what does it mean anyway
Hope it will help
