Hi,

I'd love to integrate the Vista Recovery Console for 32 and 64 bit systems into my UBCD, but I can't get the knack of it.

The files on the CDs are identically named and are:
/bootmgr
/boot/bcd
/boot/boot.sdi
/boot/bootfix.bin (I know to delete this to disable 'press any key' dialogue)
/sources/boot.wim

I'd like to put both on as options within UBCD and could do with help if anyone can provide a guide.

the CDs for both RCs were downloaded from
http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-v ... -download/

Thanks,

Pika

I don't want to download the iso myself, because it is to big and I don't need it. But the following should work.

Extract the UBCD ISO image to the harddisk (assume "c:\ubcd").

Extract the Vista Recovery Console iso to c:\vistaRC\.

Copy c:\vistaRC\ into "c:\ubcd").

Extract the bootsector (make sure the file has a .bin extension) and put in the ISOLINUX folder.
Use BBEI http://www.nu2.nu/bbie/ or http://www.codeproject.com/KB/applications/BootExtract.aspx to extract it and rename the bin file to vistarc.bin for example.

Edit "c:\ubcd\custom\custom.cfg" with a text editor:
Code:
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
   MENU LABEL ..
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/main.cfg
LABEL vistarc
   MENU LABEL  Boot Windows PE 2.0 with Windows Recovery Environment (Vista)
   KERNEL vistarc.bin

If you want to run both the 32 and 64 bit version, you are probably out of luck because you have to hex edit some files, but bootmgr can't be hex edited because windows does a integrity check on it and it won't boot then.
Search google: "isolinux windows recovery console"
