Adding Hiren's DOS Bootable CD v 9.8 / 9.7 in UBCD4Win pendrive.

A. If you have burnt iso image of Hiren's Dos bootable CD to any cd or DVd, just copy "HBCD" folder to your pen drive (pen drive which is already made bootable with UBCD4WIN)

otherwise open iso image with the help of any iso tool like ultraiso / winiso / isobuster / winimage or even winrar will do the job.

For ultraiso,

1. click on file and then click open,

2. select iso image of hiren dos boot cd v 9.8 / 9.7 and click open.:

3. Right click on HBCD folder and click Extract To.. :

4. On "Browse folder" Select UBCD4Win formated pen drive and click OK. :

In HBCD folder, copied in pen drive if you open, you can see a file boot.gz, it  is  compressed floopy image of HBCD dos menu, which we see when we boot from HBCD,:

On pen drive, there is a menu.lst file  (lst extn will be seen if you have made settings  in explorer's properties.)

5. Open this menu file with notepad or wordpad: 

6. Browse this paragraph, copy and past just below it. thus we have two entries of this boot menu.
title Launch "The Ultimate Boot CD for Windows"
fallback 1
find --set-root /minint/setupldr.bin
chainloader /minint/setupldr.bin
savedefault --wait=2

now edit pasted menu to like this:

title Launch "Mini XP From HBCD 9.8"
fallback 1
find --set-root /HBCD/XPLOADER.BIN
chainloader /HBCD/XPLOADER.BIN
savedefault --wait=2

as seen here:

now browse this menu para select and copy and paste just below it:

title Darik's Boot and Nuke v.1.0.6
map --mem (hd0,0)//Images/dban.ima (fd0)
map --hook
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)

now edit pasted para in this mannar:

title Hiren's Dos Boot CD v 9.8
map --mem (hd0,0)//HBCD/boot.gz (fd0)
map --hook
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)

as seen here:

title could be anything, what ever you write here, will be displayed as a menu when we boot from pen drive, in this case our boot floopy image is in HBCD folder and its name is boot.gz

After booting from pen drive we will see menu like this (See extra Mini XP from HBCD 9.8 and Hiren's Dos Boot CD v 9.8 menu)

you can download my edited menu.lst file from here :

Thus we have UBCD4Win bootable pen drive with all tools of HBCD included and also another Windows XP PE from HBCD integrated.
