    I did everything like the instructions say on the first post,and i get same same error on two different computers,
    other one has windows xp media center edition sp2,other one vista home (not that it should matter..)

    When it loads up,i get error nag box saying:
    "GeoShell
    Unable to start shell DDE. Failed to obtain function shdocvw.118."

    and the desktop won't be there,only the start button..
    i can run every program on the stick normally tho.. ..

      already found the prob..
      it was caused due to me chosing on boot options "use syslinux"
      when i let it be ticked on "use grub4dos" it works fine.

        I tried many times before make my USB PenDrive bootable, and load the UBCD4WIN. I would ask, Where is the GAIN from the CD/DVD to a USB Flash Drive??? :mellow:
        Because the USB PenDrive is slower than CD/DVD to copy the files In. Slower than CD/DVD to load ubcd4win, and I think any other program too. :unsure:

        Or maybe it is only my PenDrive fault??? I got a SanDisk Cruzer Micro.

        I think it is much conveniente use a 8cm dvd-rw (like I do) to make a ubcd4win dvd, it's fast and works on many many pcs.


        The Advantage to me is that I can save files to the Flash Drive if I need to. Also it's more convenient to carry around a flash drive (which I do anyway) then to carry around a CD.

        I am sorry because i interrupt like this!!!!

        I try to boot UBC4WIn with ubcd4winTOUSB v.1.0 on my Kingston Data Traveler 4.0 Gb and its works very good!
        But what is my problem!?!
        I cant see my hard disk!!! (c:)
        I just see floppy (A:),ram disk (B:) ,and my usb flash disk (X:)
        So,can i see my hard disk at all?
        If it is possible,how could i do this?(please put me a link!!!)

        This is great stuff!!

        I am sorry once more because i interrupt like this!!!!

        Thanx!!!


        Hum...have you tried making a normal UBCD4Win CD, can you see your C: drive then? It sounds like it's something to do with drivers. We had this issue with some of our Dell servers that are using Raid cards. You should be able to see every drive in the system.

              For the life of me I can not get UBCD4WIN to boot from a USB... I followed the intructions to the period and it doesn't even recognize the USB drive at boot up.. and I do have bios set to boot from USB portable..

              can I get detailed instructions because maybe im missing something in between the USB build... do I have to make BARTPE as the ISO image on the USB drive? because I dont have it make a ISO. please help

                Well, I can save files to a Flash Drive too. I just take with me a DVD-RW 8cm (very small) and a flash drive. All in my pocket.
                The advantages????
                1. Very very fast loading of UBCD4WIN from a dvd, instead of USB (drive or flash)
                2. Compatible with 99% of PCs that have a DVD-ROM drive. (1% may have an old dvd-drive that don't read dvd-rewritable)
                3. Small
                4. My flash drive is only for saving files.

                    What works for you doesn't always work for me or for others. Your DVD idea is good, but I just prefer the convenience of a flash drive. I have a CD version in case I need it.

                      Hi,

                      i've the problem, that i can boot all Linux images (like memtest, passwordrecovery...).
                      But i can't boot WinPE or WinRecovery-Console.

                      I always get:

                      Disk error
                      Press any jkey to restart


                      My USB-Stick has a size of 16 GB and so i'm not able to format it with fat (only fat32 or NTFS).
                      So, any ideas or hints?

                      Thx in advance

                        @asgard. Are you using the instructions described in the first post in this thread? If not then please start a new thread of your own and include as many details as possible such as the exact steps you've taken to prepare the drive and what hardware you've tried it on.
                        If you're afraid of taking any chances then the chances are great that you will never learn anything

                            "Disk Error" is an error message from a standard XP boot sector and the instructions in this thread are using syslinux as the boot loader.

                            "Disk Error" can occur when using a standard XP boot sector if offset 0x40 (0000:0040) of the boot sector is set to 0x00 instead of 0x80. You can use TinyHexer (included in UBCD4Win) to see if this is the case.

                              yea,
                              this error appears, when i want to start UBCD4Win from the "syslinux-bootmenu".
