Hi,
this is my first try on a custom UBCD so please forgive any mistakes.
I got GParted Live running and now I am trying my first Windows integration.

What I did:

I copied a W2k.iso into the custom folder of UBCD.

For testing I am using Vbox 3.18.

Isolinux main.cfg:

LABEL windows_winvblock
MENU LABEL W2k
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/w2k.iso
APPEND iso

But I do need alot of memory (I will maybe use this DVD on a PC with about 512mb of Ram -> the image is to large).
And I also get a bluescreen ("inaccessible boot device").
Same with WXP SP3.

Is there another way (not memdisk)?
What else can be done?

Thanks

Parted Magic (included in UBCD) has gparted as program. so you don't necessarily need Gparted Live.

Did you include the winvblock driver in the ISO?
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.p ... topic=8168

Without it, Windows can't find the memory mapped ISO.

Also add 'raw' (needed on some PCs for booting windows)
Code:
LABEL windows_winvblock
MENU LABEL W2k
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/w2k.iso
APPEND iso raw

How big is the ISO? It must be a lot smaller than 512MB if you have only 512MB of RAM.

Ok I will try that.

Is there no other way then with memdisk?
My Plan was to include W95 and W98 too (these PCs have less than 512mb).
If it is too complicated I will skip this.
Just though would be nice to have one DVD RW with all the OS I got/use on it.

I used gparted live because I dont need the other stuff included in Parted Magic.
And for testing how to get other isos into UBCD.

I think Windows 95 and 98 don't need WinVBlock. I think those ISO's will work without modification (I can be wrong).
