Two peas in separate and unique pods. Don't be so offended. It's unintended... Grin at the grumpy and carry on. ;)

Grin at the grumpy and carry on.

And so reply after reply. But who's going to have the last word this time ?

Well, I will ignore your offtopic chitchat and continue with my research journey since no one seems to want to help.

I found this link. Basically I need to know what type of menu is UBCD4Win running, and then edit the file to point to (a special or not version of) seatools.

My guess is that I need to edit some kind of bcdw file, I will search to one containing the menu items.

edit: this is getting better. link. The file was indeed custom_bcdw.ini

Well, this is not fair. :no:

In case of need you may consult the BCDW homepage:

http://bootcd.narod.ru/index_e.htm

BCDW is a project abandoned since a few years and the above page is not updated anyway to latest release (which is 2.01, whilst the page is still at 1.50z).

There used to be a mirror with latest version here:

http://www.wolfgang-brinkmann.de/downloads_e.html

but it has been removed, so you can get it, thanks to paraglider:

http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=19412

from here:

www.paraglidernc.com/temp/bcdw201a.rar

or here:

More generally, now that you are focused on UBC4WIN it is more likely that you find people familiar with it on the UBCD4WIN forum:

http://ubcd4win.com/forum/index.php?act=idx

or, since UBCD4WIN is BartPE based, on the official Bart's PEbuilder Support Forum, here:

Yeah, well, unless I'm going to ask too much about something I try to refrain myself from registering on too many sites. Anyways I successfully managed to implement seatools in the boot menu, tested over VirtualBox.

Now, as you can imagine I'm struggling at the next thing, implementing DLGDiag.exe into the boot menu, the Western Digital Diagnostic Tools for DOS. I guess I need to obtain the .img or .ima file, and that's when I stumbled over another thread of yours:

http://reboot.pro/12255/page__st__50

A bit hard to understand, what I did was to follow this guide: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=579

I made a virtual floppy drive, placed DLGDiagv519.exe in it, and then used winimage to create an image of the floppy. Then just proceeded as I did with seatools. But it didn't work, when I run DLGDiag on the boot menu, it freezes.

Did you create a plugin to add SeaTools?

WD Diag504fCD.iso contains a floppy image. Extract this and add similar to seatools.

I don't know if I created the plugin. I just followed one of the linked tutorials. Extracted seatools.ima and added to the z_custom folder. Then added the line to custom_bcdw.ini, and enabled z_custom plugin in the plugins section.

There's no floppy image in WD Diag504fCD.iso, these are the contained files:

DLGDIAG.txt

DLGDIAG5.EXE

DLGLICE.TXT

IBMBIO.COM

IBMDOS.COM

Yes, there is no file.

It's included as EL Torito part.

Anything I can try? I'm out of ideas...

7-zip list it at [bOOT] directory.

Run 7-zip http://7-zip.org/

Open the file Diag504fCD.iso, select directory [bOOT].

There is something listed as "Bootable_1.44M.img".

Extract this and assume: that's a bootable 2880 sectors floppy image

Rename this to Diag504.ima

7-zip list it at [bOOT] directory.

ups, yes sorry, I didn't understand that line. :blushing:

Thanks a bunch really. By inspecting the ISO through Winrar I never thought there was anything else hidden (BOOT folder) inside. Right now also checked with uniextract and could also retrieve the folder.

Thanks again.

...and overlooked this one :whistle: :

But again the memtest86+-4.20.iso.zip simply contains an El-Torito floppy image 1.44 Mb (and El Torito floppy emulation images can be easily extracted from .iso with 7-zip among other tools).
