Ultimate boot cd & System rescue

Specs: xp, 256
Has anyone had success with Boot cds "Ultimate boot cd" ,and "System rescue".

If you red my current problem, its what quite a few people are experiencing.
You turn on your computer and suddenly it
tries to go into Safe mode options for some strange sudden reason, you then choose one or
any of these options and the computer resets
itself going into a loop and back into the safe mode options.
I am still having problems getting into safe mode and someone suggested these products.
Before I go out and buy either "Ultimate boot cd",or "system rescue", I just want to know if they really work.

ultimate boot cd (ubcd) is completely FOC


Today's subliminal thought is: 'Calm down ... it's only ones and zeros.'

I work on systems for a living, and I wouldn't be without my UBD. As Mattie said it's free and you can make it yourself using the down-loadable program and your Windows XP disk.

I use it all the time on systems that won't boot for any number of reasons. I usually just have to run CHKDSK/R from the UBD and maybe restore the registry with one of it's many built in programs.

As you can probably tell, I REALLY like it! :)

I don't know what FOC means but there are tools that can be used for the right reasons.

I'd suspect that you have a virus, but I don't know what you have tried to isolate the issue nor what service pack level you have.

Did you try to boot to safe mode? Did you try any A/V tools.

See also UBCD4Win.

I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you goober.

Ok I have been to all 3 web sites and it says
something like

Ultimate boot cd (website says its for Linux)
System rescue (website says its for Linux)
UBCD4Win (website says its for Windows)

So I of course need the one for windows.
And yes I have tried selecting one of the 3 safe mode options. When select any of the safe mode options it comes up with Loading drivers routine, and then a blue window with
an error message, too fast for me to see.

Now when I try to install UBCD4Win , is it true you can install it and make your usb memory bootable ? like they said in the UBCD4Win forum ? cause I cant burn on to disk right now.

Also what upsets me its an Acer notebook and
they have a very primitive Bios screen even
in their brand new notebooks. So I will also
give acer a call.

And also its only got XP home edition.

You can make the ubcd4win multi bootable. Adding option for Knoppix.

Koppix allows you to read ntfs files, so you could boot up with knoppix & copy files to a dvd/cd or usb. But there are no repair tools as such.

The ubcd4win will allow you to get into the recovery console & checkdisk fixmbr etc

If you want to install on a usb drive try this http://tomshardware.co.uk/2005/09/0... But your bios will need to support boot from usb.

Yes, that's what it's for. You boot up to the CD and can do repairs on your system (C) drive from there. It has a great user interface. If you choose the Windows version it will look and behave just like your Windows XP desktop.

You need to run CHKDSK /R either from the Ultimate boot disk or Windows recovery console using any Windows XP disk to boot up with.

There is a difference with ubcd & ubcd4win. ubcd works from dos. That is the page you have a link for.

ubcd4win http://www.ubcd4win.com/ has a windows like interface. If you read the above link, it will tell you how to make the ubcd4win. You can add ubcd (dos) to ubcd4win as a boot option.

But I think all you need is download the file 173MB & read this http://www.ubcd4win.com/howto.htm
List of tools http://www.ubcd4win.com/contents.htm

If all you want to do, is run chkdsk from the recovery console. You can do this with your windows disk. ubcd4win has an option to boot to the recovery console.
