HOWTO: Integrate BackTrack with UBCD V4

#1 Post by Victor Chew » Sat May 12, 2007 4:23 am

Here's how you can integrate BackTrack into UBCD V4. The instructions are based on BackTrack 2 Stable release Mar 06 2007, but should work with other versions as well.

First extract the content of both BackTrack and UBCD to your harddisk. I am assuming the content of BackTrack is in c:\backtrack, while the content of UBCD is in c:\ubcd.

c:\backtrack should have the following files/folders:

Code: Select all

boot\
  dos\
  isolinux\
  syslinux\
  ..
BT\ 
Copy

- c:\backtrack\BT to c:\ubcd
- c:\backtrack\boot\vmlinuz c:\ubcd\boot\bt2
- c:\backtrack\boot\initrd.gz c:\ubcd\boot\bt2.gz

c:\ubcd should now look like this:

Code: Select all

boot\
BT\
custom\
  custom.cfg
  bt
  bt.gz
dosapps\
images\
isolinux\
menus\
syslinux\
tools\
website\
ubcd.ico
autorun.inf
Edit "c:\ubcd\custom\custom.cfg" with a text editor:

Code: Select all

MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
  MENU LABEL ..
  KERNEL menu.c32
  APPEND /menus/main.cfg
LABEL bt2
  MENU LABEL BackTrack
  KERNEL /boot/bt2
  APPEND vga=0x317 max_loop=255 initrd=/boot/bt2.gz init=linuxrc load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 ramdisk_size=4444 root=/dev/ram0 rw
NOTE: The boot command is actually copied from c:\backtrack\boot\isolinux\isolinux.cfg under the label "bt". You are free to copy from other labels as well eg. "btsafe".

That's it! Create a customized UBCD image using "c:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso\ubcd2iso.bat" and you are ready to run BackTrack under "User-Defined Tools".

How did you overcome the size problem because the combined size of the ubcd files and the required backtrack files is larger than the size of a cd. Or is it only possible to use a dvd??

Thanks in advance.

if you use a usb drive then you don't have to over come any thing although a DVD would work.

I'd be interested to know how you integrated BT4, because I'm lost.

Post the content of the isolinux.cfg file.
