UBCD2usb.bat another way

Post by Icecube » Sun Jul 27, 2008 2:27 am

Look at: http://partedmagic.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=130 for another way to make a bootable usb stick.

It needs editing to work with ubcd. It doesn't format the drive, so it will only work if your usb thumb drive has already the correct geometry or it will also work if your bios isn't so picky about the geometry.

There are still people who have problems with putting ubcd on there usb stick.
A complete tutorial on the home page seems to be nessary.

You have to change ubcd2usb.cmd and ubcd2iso.

You have to add quotes in ubcd2iso.
Change:

Code: Select all

echo Example:  UBCD2ISO c:\ubcd c:\ubcd40.iso
echo           (UBCD extracted in dir 'c:\ubcd', ISO image written to 'c:\ubcd40.iso')

To:

Code: Select all

echo Example:  UBCD2ISO "c:\ubcd" "c:\ubcd40.iso"
echo           (UBCD extracted in dir 'c:\ubcd', ISO image written to 'c:\ubcd40.iso')

So that if the user has extracted ubcd to a folder with a space in it, that the script still works.
Do the same for ubcd2usb.

I have updated the help examples in both *.cmd files for 5.0b5.

The only difference is the lack of a format command, no? The rest i.e. "syslinux.exe -ma" is the same.

You must place the bat file on your usb thumb drive, so it will install syslinux always to the right drive (if you don't run it from your hard drive).
So the user only has to copy the content of the iso to the usb thumb drive, double click on the file which is on the usb thumb drive, DONE.
