UBCD this live CD is an essential tool for Nooobs ...


The Ultimate Bootable CD (UBCD) is a great live CD with a host of great tools and utlilities, useful to anyone interested in making a broken system bootable again...
It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with this CD by having a look through it often,so that when you need to use it you know where things are...learning the command line syntax is better but this is a very useful stop gap while that process is ongoing...

You can have a look at it from here
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html

download http://www.myubcd.com/ burn at 8x ... I use CD-RW discs to save wasting Cd's...boot the CD up using function key or BIOS set for CD/DVD as first boot device.

To navigate the disc...Esc, use Ctrl Alt Delete if you get stuck,Space Bar to insert a tick,Tab to change field,arrow keys to navigate the choices.
I hope some of you find this interesting and helpful... LOL
