    I'm new to using UBCD, and I have already had a problems. I only have a Dell copy to build with, so I've had trouble with that, and the faq's really helped solve those problems. Followed them to a T and my build went smooth. But then I tried to use the cd to restore a compaq presario a friend brought me, and when I run the Windows recovery console it comes up saying that "the file iastor.sys could not be found". Is this a problem with the way I've built my boot cd, or is this a problem that goes beyond that, like something wrong with my copy of xp?

      It is an issue caused by your Windows source files you used to build with. Dell added ( slipstreamed ) drivers into them which is non-standard.

        Oh.. forgot this...

        Note.... to avoid confusion on what you are refering too..

        UBCD - is a DOS based boot CD with utils to repair / recover computers

        UBCD4Win - is a Windows based boot CD to also repair / recover computers and also can include UBCD with it...


        So when talking about UBCD4Win please don't call it UBCD since that is another project

          hello,
          when you boot with UBCD4WIN and reach desk top
          why not use the command line interface to go
          to C:\windows\system32\chkdsk /R
          on the hard disk not on X:the UBCD4win system

          I am sure there is a CHKDSK.EXE there
          Regards Ben
          but in case i am mistaken here is a recovry console:
          ===========
          here is a recovery console for XP Home Edition SP2 it is approx. 5MB
          it could come handy for people without proper Windows CDs (How make your own )
          http://rapidshare.co...733563/XPRC.exe

          once down loaded to deskTop put an empty CD-R in Cd rewriter Drive
          then double click on the icon to make a bootable XP home SP2 recovery console Bootable CD
          then follow these instructions:
          just for future reference
          I down loaded that Bootable Cd myself to test it
          when you boot with it and choose R for recovery console
          then choose 1 and enter
          then if you have no password just enter on key board (for Blank )
          you get
          C:\ windows> prompt
          type :
          chkdsk /R
          and enter
          you get please type path to file AUTOCHK.EXE
          when you see that type
          C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32
          and enter on key board
          that now starts off the chkdsk /R
          and it worked on my PC
