    Posted 26 July 2011 - 12:24 PM

    Hi, many thanks to all the team for the BEST recovery tool ever made.
    I used to use a 4 Gb. USB stick loaded with UBCD4WIN 3.6 slightly customized with Acronis True Image Echo Workstation and some other stuff I own.
    Now I wish to build a USB 16 Gb memory stick with my customized UBCD4Win 3.6+Knoppix 6.4.3 DVD+Ubuntu 7.1 CD.
    For that purpose I first build a ISO DVD image, which worked OK, then using UBUSB.EXE(Thanks, pcuser) tried to build the USB and the troubles come up. I can't boot any Linux distro.
    First I tried to build it with Grub4Dos boot option, then tried the Syslinux one.

    This is the MENU.LST from the Grub4Dos version:

    color black/cyan yellow/cyan
    default /default
    default 0
    timeout 10

    title Launch "The Ultimate Boot CD for Windows"
    fallback 1
    find --set-root /ntldr
    chainloader /ntldr
    savedefault --wait=2

    title commandline
    savedefault --wait=2
    commandline

    title floppy (fd0)
    chainloader (fd0)+1
    rootnoverify (fd0)
    savedefault --wait=2

    title reboot
    savedefault --wait=2
    reboot

    title Darik's Boot And Nuke v2.0 ~ Submenu
    configfile /dban-Grub4dos.ini

    title FreeDos
    map --mem (hd0,0)//Images/freedos.img (fd0)
    map --hook
    chainloader (fd0)+1
    rootnoverify (fd0)

    title Memtest86+ v4.10
    map --mem (hd0,0)//Images/memtestp.img (fd0)
    map --hook
    chainloader (fd0)+1
    rootnoverify (fd0)

    title NTFS-Dos
    map --mem (hd0,0)//Images/ntfs4dos.img (fd0)
    map --hook
    chainloader (fd0)+1
    rootnoverify (fd0)
    title PE-Boot (Compatibility Mode)
    map --read-only /images/kicker.img (hd0)
    map --hook
    root (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

    title PE-Boot (Compatibility Mode / Memory Mapped)
    map --mem --read-only /images/memkick.gz (hd0)
    map --hook
    root (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1


    As you can see, no Knoppix nor Ubuntu menu entries are there, but there are two PE-Boot options plus commandline and floppy boot options which aren't in the DVD image (and I don't need).
    Also, it lacks the Boot from Drive C: option which is also in the DVD build.

    This is the /syslinux/syslinux.cfg from the syslinux boot option build:

    Again, there are no Linux entries. Also note that the UBCD4Win entry is duplicated.

    Here is the BCDW.ini file from the BCDW directory of the ISO image:

    I surfed (maybe not too much) the forum and didn't find this behaviour, and do not have the knowlegde to convert the BCDW menu entries into the Grub or Syslinux boot.
    Is there something I'm doing wrong?
    Any help, please?

        Hello pcuser, thanks for your quick reply.
        I've made a mistake when copying the BCDW.ini from the ISO image, because I'd create several builds with little differences between them when trying to figure out what was happening. One was a build with Knoppix 6.0.1 CD, which is from I copypaste the bcdw.ini. In the Knoppix DVD ISO build there was no \BCDW\Knoppix-BCDW.ini but \BCDW\Knoppix.ini, and here is the text:

          Now I wish to build a USB 16 Gb memory stick with my customized UBCD4Win 3.6+Knoppix 6.4.3 DVD+Ubuntu 7.1 CD.

          Edit USB boot configuration file in addition.

          This is the /syslinux/syslinux.cfg from the syslinux boot option build:

          Edit this file, copy and paste parts from knoppix syslinux.cfg.

            Hi cdob, many thanks for your help, I've been able to include the option to start Knoppix, although I must have to do some changes:

            I changed "KERNEL /isolinux/linux" by "KERNEL /isolinux/knoppix" and "initrd=/isolinux/minirt.gz" by "initrd=/isolinux/knoppix.gz" as these are the names which have the files in the build.
            Also, inspired by those your instructions, I've been able to also include the option to start Ubuntu. Many thanks for that! :)
            Now, I'm astounded because I can't launch UBCD4Win, probably there are some mistake in the syslinux.cfg file, which I'm investigating now (apart from the fact there are two UBCD4Win launch options). But also I would launch the options for linux by going through its relative menus, instead of launching Knoppix or Ubuntu directly. Some suggestion, please?
            Many thanks again :rolleyes:

              Or move kernel and minird file to /knoppix/ directory.
              That way all knoppix files are at /knoppix/ directory.

              It's a typo: chain32 to chain.c32.
              Delete first entry and edit second one
              LABEL UBCD4Win
                MENU LABEL Launch "The Ultimate Boot CD for Windows"
                COM32 chain.c32

                TEXT HELP

                Wow!! Yeah!!! :D

                Hey, cdob: That's wonderful! I have now reached my goal (or almost) with your help. I have my knoppix and ubuntu distros ready to work aside ubcd4win. Next, to have full playing, I must to download the 6.4.4 version of knoppix, because I have 6.4.3 DVD, which lacks 64 bit version... :wacko:
                I'll going to do it!!

                Many thanks for your help. It droves me to new knowledge, and that's the better.

                Also many thanks to all the people who help others to learn.
