Hi all,

i'm experiencing some problems on my laptop...
Main partition has been deleted and i can't use my cd rom driver.
The only solution for me is to run a tool (UBCD) to try to reformat/create new partition on my HD.

The problem is that i dunno how to run this soft on my bootable usb drive.
It is said to run "UBCD2USB.BAT" (in \TOOLS\UBCD2USB) but the BAT only shows the following message (and nothing else):
Image

i tried to type the command "ubcd2usb" but the command is not recognized.....

What ca I do????

thanks for your help, i'm desperate :'(

Suppose that you have you unpacked version in "c:\ubcd"

Go to start ==> Run... ==> type "cmd" (without quotes).
Change the directory to "C:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso\"
Type the following in the console window.
Code:
ubcd2usb c:\ubcd x:\

(c:\ubcd = path to the extracted UBCD iso, replace x:\ with the right path for your USB key (e.g.: can be d: , e:, f:, g:, h:, ... .See that you choose the right one, because the drive will be formatted)

yea i finaly managed to create my bootable usb disk. tnx!

but now i have another pb...
when i boot on my usb, i go in the partition tools (in UBCD).
whatever the on i choose i always have this:
0 : Boot Clean
1 : Boot UMBPCI ( Optimal )
2 : Boot UMBPCI ( Semi-defensive )
3 : Boot EMM386 ( optimal )
4 : Boot EMM386 ( semi-defensive )
5 : Boot no UMB ( defensive )
6 : Boot no UMB ( ultra-defensive )


then if i choose the 0 option, i just have a blank screen.
If i choose any of the other options, i got this message:
Free DIS HIMEM64 3.26....
HIMEM - KBC A20 method used
UMBPCI c't 11/95
Using DOOO-DFFFIntel 945GM found
Program installed
LowDMA : installed
Kernel : Allocated 34 Diskbuffers = 18088 Bytes in HDMA


do you know what this means? and how i could re-create my main partition ?

This is just info from the the freedos image. For all dos based programs, you get something like this. Then it will unpack a bunch of files and I will show some dialogue boxes and then finally it will launch your program.

I you accidentally deleted your partition table (no partitions seen anymore), use testdisk.

Search on google how to use it.

i've tried to lunch testdisk (and all the other partition disk on the UBCD) and i always get this free dos message.

the problem is not the message itself... but i can't do anything afterwards! i've tried to wait, but even 10mins later i still have nothing, and i can't type anything after it displays "Kernel : Allocated 34 Diskbuffers = 18088 Bytes in HDMA"

Have you tried all the options?
1, 2 ,3 ,4,5,6? I don't know myself what the difference is, but try them.

You can use testdisk also if you download parted magic. It is a linux distro bootable from a live cd/usb. If your windows partiton is still visible, you can copy all the files that you want to backup. http://partedmagic.com/

Download parted magic and use testdisk from there.
