BartPE is a software to create a simple Windows LiveCD. UBCD4Win is an extended version of BartPE that includes many softwares.
This page describes how to install and use the BartPE/UBCD4Win plugin. These softwares are no more maintened, but you can still find them on the Wayback Machine site: https://web.archive.org/web/20150602213125/http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ for BartPE and https://web.archive.org/web/20140707223650/http://www.ubcd4win.com:80/index.htm for UBCD4Win. They can be used with old versions of Windows, with recent version, you can use the Windows installation DVD or the repair CD you can create from an existing installation (see Use of Windows version with Windows installation DVD).

1- Installation

You can install the plugin with downloading the spartcab.zip file, with uncompressing it then with adding the obtained savepart.cab file to PE-Builder plugins list. For this, you need to launch PE-Builder, click on "Plugins" then on "Add" and choose the savepart.cab file. Once this is done the plugins window can be closed.

Following plugins are also needed to use some tools (they are not needed to execute savepart program itself):

You can also configure your keyboard for it to match your keyboard layout (as using AZERTY instead of QWERTY keyboard). For this, you need to choose the "Keyboard Layout" plugin, then click on "Edit" to remove the "; " part at begin of ; 0x1, "Keyboard Layout\Preload", "1", "<keyboard code>" line that correspond to your keyboard type (see comment line above each of them to know which keyboard type it is).

2- Use

When you launch obtained BartPE CD, you can launch program with using corresponding menu entry or with opening a command window and launching it by hand (if you need to use specific options).
If mouse seems to not work, it is because console is configured for quick edit mode. You have to click on the window icon on top left, choose "Properties", "Edit options" tab and uncheck "Quick edit mode" (note: as it is translation from French version, menu and options name are certainly not exactly these ones but something similar).

If an Internet browser plugin was installed, you can look at the HTML documentation with choosing it into menu.

Analyse tools can also be used. For this you can either open a command window and launch them by hand (if you need to use specific options) or choose shortcut into menu. In this last case, first the name of a file where output is redirected is asked. You can either give the name of a file (this one will be created or overwritten), or click on "Cancel" to get output on screen.
For the "fileinfo" tool, name of file to analyse is requested after ask of name of output file.
