How To: Install UBCD on Hard Disk

#1 Post by Elbarto » Thu May 01, 2008 11:37 am

Hello,

this is the tip to install UBCD on hardisk ( IDE, USB ) :

- decompress the UBCD iso file with 7zip

- create a FAT32 primary partition with your favorite partition tool manager

- download syslinux software:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/

- decompress the syslinux archive, and copy the file "syslinux.exe" from the "win32" directory to your work directory

- open a command line from your work directory and type:
"syslinux.exe -maf X:" where "X:" is the letter of your boot partition for UBCD

- copy all files from the "syslinux" directory ( except the "ldlinux.sys" file) of your UBCD files to the root of the boot partition

- copy all files and directories of UBCD to the boot partition

that's all :)

your hard disk ( USB, IDE ) should now boot exactly like a standard UBCD

but there is a bug on some notebooks and motherboards: freedos can hang at startup :/

"memdisk" is probably guilty, this module can have problem to launch Freedos/MSDOS on some laptop/notebook

hi, just a bit confused: by UBCD files do you mean all the files that were extracted from the UBCD iso file or the files in directory named "UBCD"

He means the UBCD ISO.

Visit the UBCD Wiki: http://wiki.ultimatebootcd.com
Please check your UBCD ISO MD5 Hash Sum; May prevent issues later on by not having an exact copy.
