Hirens Boot CD 14.1 Restored Edition + USB Installation Guide | 1.4GB
Hiren’s Boot CD is a vast collection of bootable and portable utilities for the management, diagnosis and repair of computer problems, recover lost or deleted files or cracking passwords. In addition, HBCD provides a means to take control of any computer and communicate with other computers, surf the internet, write documents or programs, without booting the installed operating system. There are literally hundreds of utilities and it is advised that you explore the contents before the need for it arises
Hiren’s Boot CD can be used in two ways:
1. As a boot CD to take control of the computer without starting the installed operating system so that we can do repairs or clone the main disk, recover files, test the memory, clean severe viral infections, etc. To do any of these simply boot the computer from the CD and select a utility from the menu. Note that the options include a couple of Linux rescue environments which provide many powerful tools for solving and repairing Windows and Linux problems.
2. As a collection of portable repair and diagnostic utilities which can be run from within Windows without installation.
To do this insert the CD when Windows is running and select a utility from the HBCD Program Launcher menu. If the CD does not autorun you may start the menu by running \HBCD\ HBCDMenu.exe. When the operating system not functional or unavailable the portable utilities may be still be used if we boot the Mini Windows XP environment included in the CD. (4th option of the main boot menu).
