Boot and access C: drive

#1 Post by kjjack » Wed Apr 27, 2005 5:35 am

How do I get to the C: drive after booting to the menu of the UBCD? I want to be able to run some basic DOS commands.

Try [F6] [F1] to launch the FreeDOS boot disk.

One of my computer crashed on Friday "Virus", and I tried to boot to the c:\ drive as described above and was unable to access the drive.

Is your C: an NTFS partition? Did you enable NTFS support when booting
up FreeDOS?

Yes it is NTFS, and I made sure that I enable NTFS support when booting, but the drive was not recognized!

Sorry to sound stupid, I honestly haven't had the need to run UBCD for quite some time (might be a good thing). Does UBCD support SCSI/SATA/RAID hard drives? I'm just thinking that maybe KingD's hard drive is setup in one of those ways and that's why it won't be recognized. Have you ever used UBCD on that system in the past and it has worked?

NO! This was the first time that I had tried using the UBCD at all! I rebuilt my bro-in-laws computer for him a couple weeks ago, and realized that I needed to replace some of my utilities and boots disks, so I downloaded UBCD. Then when my computer got nailed by a Trogan Virus, I tried the UBCD, unfortunately I couldn't get in and ended up having to wipe my entire hard drive clean, by booting up my XP CD and doing a complete format and install! I have two hard drives in my computer, a 40gig Seagate, and a 250gig Western Digital!

From what I understand, FreeDOS should work with BIOS support, whether it's SATA or RAID. But if the program tries to access the controller directly, it might not work.

For example, I have a Gigabyte machine with IDE RAID. It works with FreeDOS, but DFT and others won't see it.
