    I did create a USB flash drive for a bootable UBCD4WIN, but it boots direct into the Windows XP PE, without displaying that first boot options menu, so how do I just add this menu feature to my USB drive ? I built it with the UBUSB.zip file extracted to the UBCD4WIN plugin folder, then used the UBUSB.exe to do it, and I selected the FAT32 standard boot option, rather than the syslinux, or the grub4dos, so which boot method is best to use, and get a menu ?

      You have to choose either Syslinux or Grub4dos for the bootloader. If you did choose one of them then please give more details about what options you used and if the boot files are on the flash drive or not.

        Since I did select the standard boot type, then can I change it to either the syslinux or grub4dos types, and how to do that ? My flash drive has several files on the root of it; autorun.inf, ntldr, ntdetect.com, winbom.ini, bootsect.bin, and 2 WIN51IC files, and the 6 folders too.

          Standard boot type is the only selection that doesn't support multiboot, choose either Syslinux or Grub4dos instead.

            So can I just use that UBUSB.exe build tool to add in syslinux or the Grub4dos, or do I need to run the USB build process over again? Also which boot type is used by the UBCD4WIN when the iso file is burned to CD, and which is the better one to use to see a boot menu?

              You have to do the process again. Select either Syslinux or Grub4dos then click "GO".

              BTW. There's an updated set of Multiboot plugins HERE that adds Grub4dos support to the default UBCD4Win multiboot plugins. Delete your %UBCD4Win%\plugin\Multiboot-003 folder and replace it with the one in the download. If you do this then you'll have to build UBCD4Win again using UBCD4WinBuilder before running UBUSB.

              I like using Grub4dos because it adds the "PE-Boot (Compatibility Mode)" option to the boot menu which seems much faster than standard usb booting and can be used to boot computers that normally have problems booting from usb.

                In C:\UBCD4Win\plugin\UBUSB is 2 files as square boxes type; (grubinst.exe, and syslinux.exe), can I just copy and paste one of these files into my USB, and then run it to put in the other boot loader? Which is the better file system for a USB flash; fat16 LBA or fat32 LBA ? Thansk for the help.

                  I doubt it. Why not simply click "GO" and have everything done for you?

                  Fat16 seems to be a little faster but has a 2GB limit.

                    Well I did re-create this UBCD4WIN for USB with the grub4dos boot option, thanks for all the help, it does now boot up to a menu.

                      The above embedded reply is annoying as hell to decipher!!!!!

                      You should have just replied with plain text without the quote crap!!!
                      Don't get fancy! :boxing:
                      Thanks for your followup post.

                        Not getting the USB menu to come up was driving me INSANE!!!
                        I was going to post to ask, but I did some more reading and found this post.

                        Thank you.

                        Everything works like a charm. I love being able to whip out my USB drive (that has extra space on it for other tools and data) rather than carring around a small box of CDs.

                          So how do I turn off that auto-quoting feature when I reply to a post, as I can not find any option to do that, I do not add those quotes intentionally, thanks. The only way I see is to select the quotes and just press delete.

                            I don't like the "QUOTE" or the "REPLY" buttons because you have to edit out what you don't want, but they do have their uses.

                            Use the "ADDREPLY" button at the bottom of the topic.
                            I prefer grabbing the relevant text and wrapping in quote tags:

                            Quote

                            The only way I see is to select the quotes and just press delete.

                            or
