Make Your Pen drive Bootable, Install UBCD4Win in USB Disk

First of all, we need Ultimate boot cd for windows (UBCD4Win) v 3.13 or later...
It could be downloaded from, size of this UBCD4win is 250+ MBs. It is also included in one of the recent Digit's DVD

Download and Install UBCD4Win, check integrity as shown.

After Installation Launch UBCD4Win by clicking Finish :

Click I Agree :

Next Step :
1. Do not search for Windows XP installation file, click No (it takes time to search installation file directory which we already know.
2. Select source Directory where Windows XP installation file is stored. It could be a hard disk folder or Installation CD, If you are using an Windows XP Setup CD, To speedup process, copy all flies from cd to any folder in hardisk (like i copied in XPPR folder). Select folder

Leave Output folder as it is,
3. Select Media Output : - None, no output to make bootable CD (only folders and flie of BARTPE will be created.
Select ISO Image if U want to make an ISO image to burn on CD later
Select Burn to CD/DVD if you directly want to make Bootable CD.

6. Click Agree to agree Windows XP EULA

7. When completed click Close

8. Click Plugins , Now to make Pen drive Bootable, on main window, click Plugins

9. From List of plugins, select Plugin UBCD4WintoUSB
10. Click Config to launch this Plugin

Plugin your blank pen drive, backup data of your pen ddive as it will be formated
11. Select Enable Format, Select flie system : small pendrive like 1gb or 2gb, select FAT16, for big pendireve like 4GB or 8GB or 16GB, select FAT32 file system)
Drive label:- anything you want
12. In boot options, select Grub4Dos, (I did not tried any other option, this option was by default, and later we can add in it other bootable utilitis like Hiren's Dos Bootable CD v 9.6 etc)
13. Check all File copy option

14. Click Yes to format pen drive.

After completion, your pen drive is ready to run as bootable UBCD4Win disk

In newer computer, when you will connect pen drive and start computer, the usb disk will be recognised. You have to set boot option as "boot from USB first" at your BIOS.

Well, nice post :)
Haven't tried it yet, but the steps you described makes me to think it's a quite straightforward process.

Hi, I tried it out and noted one issue which is duplicated menu entries in the UBCD4Win environment.

After going through the UBCD4Win forum, it was pointed out that a CD ISO image must be created as it will produce the correct menu for use in the UBCD4Win environment.

I tried it out again and can confirmed that it is indeed a must to create the CD ISO image. Regards.

Critical, missing step 6.5: Click Build to have UBCD4Win create all of the files in the output directory. Otherwise, nothing will work.

I just downloaded version 3.1.10a just today and I could successfully create an iso image, burn it and run ubcd4win successfully. However, I am trying to create a bootable flash drive, but I DO NOT see the plugin mentioned in step 9: "9. From List of plugins, select Plugin UBCD4WintoUSB". Any ideas? Please help....

I also can not find the plug-in
"UBCD4WintoUSB". I think it has been removed for some reason.

Anonymous said...

Ditto with the missing plugin. Anyone find a workaround?

onlytest said...

Have you tried new build, current build is 3.60.

UBCD4WINTOUSB plugin is not available in build before 3.13. but you can download saperate plugin/executable file for previous version. This saperate plugin was provided by

May be plugin was removed because it is not working on Windows 7

Download from here:

Use "Extract Here" and copy folder "ubcd4winToUSB" to "C:\UBCD4Win\plugin\!Critical" folder and restart ubcd4winbuilder

Hi! I downloaded the ubcd4win V.3.60. When I run it, the program pops open with the "V.3.60" written on the title, but on the title bar of the program window, it says "V.3.1.10a. The plugin ubcd4winToUsb is missing and I followed the intstructions posted by OnlyTest but it doesn't work. I tried launching the program but I get this message: "Sorry this program did not work under:". Please give us a link to where we can download the actual UBCD4WIN Version 3.60. Thank you!

Hi! I was the one who posted the last comment. Just wanted to let you know that I was trying to run the plugin on a laptop running Windows 7. After reading some forums, I found out that the plugin does not run in Windows 7 and Vista. So, I found a forum that gives an alternative. The link is I used the program UBUSB.exe and it worked perfectly! Thank you!
