We have received reports of UBCD V3.3 (which is based on CDShell V2.0.16) not booting on certain machines. The error message is:
"Error booting from CD/DVD drive. Press any key to reboot"
followed by "[", 16 rectangular blocks, a large number of
periods, "]" and 80800279
The error reports can be found at:
We have tried some proposed solutions (such as re-saving the ISO image using UltraISO, or dropping some non ISO-compliant switches in mkisofs) but to no avail.
The problem seems to be specific to CDShell 2.0.16, and can be isolated down to loader.bin. CDShell 2.0.11 (which an older version of UBCD is based on) has been tested to work correctly on all machines, according to the reports.
Any suggestions on how to proceed? I think we have some really helpful users who are willing to help isolate and resolve the issue, all we need now are some directions.
