    You can always just use a CD-RW many times if you want to test. :)

      Ben and LittlBUGer have suggested using QEMU for Windows to test the UBCD4WIN ISO file before burning. I have found the necessary files and have gotten it to work successfully so I just wanted to pass on a few links that would be helpful for all of you to use. It is a really excellent tool and saves you from burning too many coffee coasters. :D

      Get the latest QEMU files here (download the 0.7.2 version):
      http://free.oszoo.or.../win32/release/
      Install it in c:\program files\QEMU and when it asks to load an OS image, just say no because you will be using your UBCD4WIN image.

      Get a really nice front-end called QGui here which launches QEMU for you with all the necessary settings (download the 2.14 version):
      http://perso.wanadoo.es/comike/
      Just extract QGui.exe to c:\program files\QEMU and delete the rest because it is an older version of QEMU. You might want to add a shortcut to this file in the QEMU start menu section.

      QGui is written in Visual Basic 6 so if you don't have the runtime on your PC, get it here:
      http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

      The rest of the instructions on how to configure QGui might be easier to see visually, so go to the Running your UBCD in QEMU on Windows section of this nice tutorial:
      http://danielha.free...win/qemu-en.htm

      You will basically be running QGUI and it will spawn off QEMU for Windows for you will all the necessary settings.

      The version of QGui that you will be downloading is a later version than in the tutorial so you will see an additional tab called "Embedded QEMU". Just uncheck the box "Embed QEMU inside QGui window", follow the rest of the instructions and you will see a window pop up with your UBCD4WIN environment. Takes a little time to come up depending on the speed of your PC and allocated memory but it will come up fine.

      Just remember to activate the mouse by pressing ALT-CTRL when you want to be in the QEMU window and that not everything will work because you are still booted to your main OS but it will allow for some testing. If you want to delete a Virtual Machine configuration, go to your QEMU folder and delete the appropriate .QVM file.

      Have fun!!! :banana:


      Is it all about__using QEMU for Windows to test the UBCD4WIN ISO file before burning ?

      Will it test if after booting from UBCDCD Wether Option Window Recovery Console will work or not ?

      If it is only to test wether UBCD will Boot or not before burning if you mount it By Alcohol 120% softrware , will show you the result.

      Will appreciate your comments, please

        I don't see how mounting the CD while you are in Windows will help anything. What pops up in Windows from the final CD/ISO is completely different than what actually boots when you use the CD to boot your PC. QEMU is like Virtual PC to see if the CD will actually boot the virtual environment. Doing it by Alcohol or any other software that can mount an image, you're only getting to see the simple Autorun feature and the contents of the CD, not a whole lot more. :)

            That is because this thread you are looking in is about 2 years old ... the internet is not static and things such as that do move all of the time.
            Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
