"...ramdisk_start=0 4"
Change the 4 to a 5 and it should run xwindows.

Adding Astrumi linux to UBCD??

See if you have an /INSERT directory in the root of UBCD. If you do, you're using the Full version, if not, then Victor simply forgot to clean it out in the Basic version. If you don't have an Insert directory, it's find to overwrite the files in /isolinux. You can skip the copy of boot.cat in the b...

Adding Astrumi linux to UBCD??

Try the following: - Copy all files from the Astrumi boot directory to UBCD's boot dir - Copy all files from the Astrumi /isolinux dir to an /isolinux dir on UBCD - Remove your imagesastrumi.iso file from /images - Change your .scn file to simply read: if ($lastKey == key[f4]); then isolinux that's ...

What ever functions are available are provided by CDShell so check out the documentation; start with this page and work through commands, functions, etc: http://www.cdshell.org/doc/scripting.html I'm sure CDShell does not provide some of the functions you're looking for but you can always modify the...

Please post the contents of isolinux.cfg from ZenWorks;
we'll see if we can't come up with a combo that works.

It would dictate a lot of typing on our part to list all the things you can do with the UBCD. My suggestion is that you visit the main UBCD page: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ scroll down to the "Ultimate Boot CD (Basic)" table and visit the links for all the tools. That should give you a...

You would have to contact the CDShell author for more information on cdshell.iso; I don't know what it's for. Since it's the name of the "virtual file system", I suspect it's not a physical file (hence the term "virtual"). I know we've never specifically done anything with such a...

My apologies for not reading your original post more carefully. I still don't understand why the .IMZ images worked at all since, unless I've missed something in the changelogs of CDShell, that format isn't supported.

Boot error 81400219

If you can't find loader.bin in the boot directory then I suspect that's your problem. Download UBCD from somewhere else. We use it, and it's in there, so I'm at a loss to explain why you can't find it. BTW, you'll never see it on the CD itself, but if you look at the iso it should be in there. In L...

First, does CDShell control the initial boot process? Yes. Second, what configuration files are involved, if any, other than /boot/cdshell.ini ? cdshell.ini calls main.scn which in turn, calls other .scn files, but none of these are used for the initial boot. If using isolinux or memdisk, the isoli...

Save it as an .IMA file and change your custom.scn
appropriately. In WinImage, .IMZ is a zlib compressed
image, which none of the boot loaders support.

Diskemu does not support compressed images. Uncompress
the images and use .img for your image names.

It should boot with less than 32K of memory... if you can even
find a system with so little RAM.

Minimum RAM required to boot?

Pretty much all the apps will run on systems with less than 1MB
since they are DOS based. Exceptions to this are the linux utils,
Insert, RIP, etc.
