i have 2 differnt IBM models that both do the samething. I can boot using a CD but when I try booting using the USB all that happens is it show the syslinux im using and the boot prompt never comes. If anyone can help that would be great. Also i can use the usb to boot about 20 other differnt PC and laptops, not IBM.

Try to replace your syslinux version.

Extract the ubcd iso to c:\ubcd.
Download syslinux from http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/.
Extract the syslinux archive to "c:\syslinux\".

To update syslinux for the bootable USB key
- Copy "c:\syslinux\ldlinux.sys" to "c:\ubcd\syslinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\mbr\mbr.bin" and "c:\syslinux\ldloader.bss" to "c:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2usb\".
Remake your usb thumb drive with the script.

OR instead run syslinux.exe from c:\syslinux\win32
Code:
syslinux -ma -d syslinux x:

Replace x: with the drive letter for your thumb drive.

Try the last beta of ubcd5 (see the forum). It contains another way to format your usb thumb drive which hopefully will solve your problem.

So you can boot it now? So now it doesn't work anymore when you select an option of the menu? What do you mean with the r51 option? Which error messages do you get?

Try adding "raw" to the command line.
You can also update MEMDISK and see if it helps:
