Build Your Own Custom Ubuntu Live CD

You turn on your trusty old Linux box, and things are going well as you pass through the boot loader, until the disk check reveals that your hard drive partition table is corrupt, and you are unable to access your machine. You need a good rescue disk — and the best way to get one is to create your own.

Learn how to build your own custom ubuntu live CD.


Can anyone simply explain how to fix this problem? Step-by-step. Don't assume anything. I've read hundreds of threads and launchpad entries and could not find one that clearly and simply conveyed how to fix the problem. Maybe there is no solution, except using Windows to just burn cd's.

I'm a newbie - please help!!

i have a partitioned laptop; xp, win7,files+folders etc and a 'spare'. id heard about linux and ubuntu but knew nothing about them. when ubuntu 9.10 came out i downloaded it and burnt it to an iso, no problem. i started to install it on my spare partition. everything was going fine when i was presented with a list of options with \ext3 \ext4 and other things that made no sense to me. i had to spend ages re-surfing to find out what it was all about. finally i installed it on ext4 (i dont know if thats what i was supposed to do) and got it up and running. what was impressive was how really fast web pages came up on firefox. it seemed worth all the pain! but then as i was adding more software i just got fed up of constantly being asked for my password, even worse than uac in win7! i got fed up so i rebooted and expected to get back into windows. imagine my horror at finding xp and win7 gone! there was no boot loader menu, no windows option at all.
