So I spent yesterday building my UBCD at a friend's house (the bulk of the time spent was constructing a slipstreamed windows xp disk with sp3). At one point during the process (I believe it was while it was building the ISO) I received an error message saying "your system's rules prevent you from naming a file in this way" with Avast! as the current error. I told it to go ahead and rename the file (it inserted tildas in place of exclamations), and said yes to all when I received several of those errors.
When I booted the cd on my computer (or rather booted my computer on the cd) I got a few error messages saying it was unable to read the language file. Eventually I made it to the start bar, fully booted, but autorun was greyed out. Also greyed out were Avast, rootkitty, and probably 50% of the other antivirus and recovery tools. My suspicion is that renaming the files caused the programs not to be recognizable. I have now uninstalled and reinstalled the UBCD4Win builder and am hoping that I can create a proper build.
Does anyone know of a way around the file naming issue? Or - although this doesn't fall strictly under the realm of UBCD4Win troubleshooting - how to disable the "yes to all" I have placed on renaming all files with exclamation points?
Edit: I should say that I am building my ISO on Windows Vista, if that helps, since I'm guessing XP doesn't have issues naming files in that way.
