      Hello ,
      that is a DOS program ???
      you can use Winimage to make a 2.88MB size image .IMG and use it with a dos bootable CD like UBCD (not UBCD4Win)

      you can use Disk partioner with UBCD4Win and it does not need plugin
      just double click it.

        hi loy's

        You can put a PM 8 floppy image into ubcd4win using the multiboot plugin menu BCDW
        (see info from ben_mott on how to merge two floppys)

        multiboot plugin assumes you are building from XP not Win 2003 source

        However PM 8 will want to write temporary files !!

        I got round that by using RAMDRIVE.SYS
        see autoexec.bat, config.sys and setramd.bat below

        PM 8 is getting old and has trouble with re-sizing Vista Partitions so you might want something more modern

              you can use Disk partioner with UBCD4Win and it does not need plugin
              just double click it.

              http://www.paraglide...Partitioner.exe

              the above is the GUi for Diskpart.exe of MicrosoftXP
              ====
              NOTE
              ====
              do not rename it to Diskpart else will crash.
              put it in a folder called Tools and in the PEbuilder point to that folder and that gets included on your
              UBCD4WIN Bootable CD/DVD
              use A43 file manager to locate it then double click on it.
              I use linux parted magic
              http://partedmagic.com/
              you can down load iso from his web site and burn the bootable Cd using imgBurn (google it)

                Heed these guys warnings. I`m very inexperienced at doing UBCD4WIN or UBCD but
                I stagger along and have tried PM8 on a boot disk. UBCD does allow you to add PM8
                to it which I did once. I used it and it messed up my partitions. It`s some baaaaaaaaaad medicine.
                There is also EASUS Partition Master 3.5 which works with Bart PE and can probably be grafted to UBCD4WIN.
                There are several threads with cautionary tales about PM8.

                Good Luck!

                Plain
                If it ain`t broke....give me two minutes with it.
