    When I boot a Dell desktop using a CD I created with a standard Windows XP CD, the display is only basic - about 8 colors.
    Also, even though I plug a flash drive in before booting, the drive isn't recognised. How can I add Dell drivers to my UBCD4WIN folder so that I can rebuild a CD that works on DELL?

      I'm assuming the Dell PC in question is using the on-board Intel video that is fully craptastic? If that's the case, it's nothing to do with Dell in general, just any on-board Intel video, which suck. I'm not sure what you can do other than going into the BIOS and making sure the Video RAM is set to at least 8 MB and then trying to boot from the CD again.

      As for the other question, which flash USB drive are you plugging in? Thanks.

        The Pretec USB flash drive wasn't recognised, nor was a western digital hard drive in an external USB case.

          Which Dell do you use?

          There are strange Dell machines. And there are more strange Dell machines.
          Sometimes only some USB ports are active early at boot. Try all USB ports.

            Hi dougham

            Remember hot plug does not work with standard version BartPE
            plugin USB devices before switching on

            With Some Dells you can turn off front or rear USB ports in BIOS

            make sure nothing is plugged into adjacent socket in pair of usb port
            as under BartPE ports may overload with two devices plugged in adjacent pair of ports but may work under real XP or Vista

            regards
