About The Tutorial

This tutorial will guide you through the steps to formating and copying over the UBCD to your USB drive with the program RMPrepUSB. This guide does not contain help on modifying any of the extracted content; if you are looking for a specific guide that is not available here, please check the UBCD forums for more help and information. It is highly recommended that after completing this tutorial that you test the USB flash drive by booting your computer from it. The good news is that if it doesn't work the first time you can easily just edit/update files and try again unlike a cd/dvd where it is permanent. Makes adding more programs just as easy.

WARNING: If you skip requirements, you do so at your own risk, as you may encounter issues that will be traced back to not being prepared.


Before we jump into the guide you will need the following:

  • 1. The UBCD ISO, ofcourse. Download it here if you haven't already. For this tutorial I will be using version 5.0rc1, seeing as it has more fixes and is up-to-date. I have already extracted the UBCD ISO to "My Documents" using this guide Tutorials:Remastering.
  • 2. RMPrepUSB program. The version I will be using is v2.0.736. Download it Here. To download, you will need a username and password. I suggest using www.bugmenot.com if you do not want to register, though we HIGHTLY recommend you do register. I have already extracted it to the same folder as the extracted UBCD ISO.
  • 3. At least a 512MB USB Flash Memory Drive. These and larger sizes can be picked up for relatively cheap just about anywhere. If you are going to be adding more programs to it, always make sure you have extra space.

After checking that you have met all requirements we can proceed with the tutorial.
