Dell's 32 Bit Diagnostics v1282 are useful tools in troubleshooting Dell systems. Here's how to add it to the CD:

1) In UBCD\dosapps create a folder named Dell1282 and extract Dell's "Hard-Drive file format" download into it. (CZ128200.exe, not cdd_1282.iso)

2) In the Dell1282 folder create a file called startup.bat. Put this text in the file:

Code:
cls
cd \dosapps\Dell1282
delldiag.com

3) Edit your menu file under UBCD\boot\menus (usually custom.scn) to include this line:

Code:
if ($lastKey == key[d]); then set method = "memdisk"; then set image = "fdubcd"; then set target = "Dell1282"; then script launch.scn

Please note this is a single line. Add the option in the menu system above as well so you can see which key to press to launch it.

Code:
print " [D]   Dell Diagnostics 1282

This line should have the "s line up on both sides of the screen.

4) Compile your updated UBCD with the batch file mkubcd.bat.

Thanks to baronvonfoxbat7734 for his suggestion to use the Hard Disk files rather than the ISO. This method does not have the mouse crash issue.

These instructions seem out of date with the current version 4.1.1.

Any hints about which of the menus to modify?

Since this works with Memdisk the only difference between booting this is the menu system. Add this to your custom/custom.cfg file:

Code:
LABEL Dell1282
   MENU LABEL Dell Diagnostics 1282 - GUI-based diags for newer Dells
   KERNEL memdisk
   APPEND initrd=/images/dosubcd.igz ubcdcmd=Dell1282

Hi all,

in the actually ISO File from Dell there is only one "boot.images" dir with the harddisk.00 file. I need the ubcd with this diag CD from dell, but: how ? What need the ubcd - the .iso or the .00 file and what must i add in the custom/custom.cfg file ?

@ScottCooper: you use a .igz in your sample, but how can i create this file from the .iso or the .00 file ????

Thanks for your help !! Sven

@ Sven: You have to download the file "CZ128200.exe", not the iso.
You don't have to make the .igz file, because the dosubcd.igz is a freedos image that is used by UBCD to start a lot of dos applications and it is already available in the folder /images/.
ubcdcmd=Dell1282 just provides the path to your executable, if you start in c:\ubcd\dosapps\
