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:
- 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 and hardware, clean severe viral infections, et.c. To do any of these simply boot the computer from the CD and select a utility from the menu. Options include 3 Mini Windows environments (98,XP and 7) and a couple of Linux rescue environments.
- 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
HBCDMenu.cmd. When the operating system not functional or unavailable the portable utilities may be still be used if we boot a Mini Windows environment included in the CD. (3rd option of the main boot menu).For example Norton Ghost can be started in three ways:
- Boot the CD, select "Dos Programs" and then "Norton Ghost". (useful if we wish to clone or restore the main hard disk and there is not enough memory to boot Mini Windows XP).
- Boot the CD, select "Mini Windows XP" and then select Ghost from the HBCD Program Launcher menu.
- Boot to your windows operating system, insert the CD and select Ghost from the HBCD Program Launcher menu.Acronis Similarly:
- Can be booted from HBCD Dos menu.
- Can be Booted directly from main menu.
- Run from Mini XP or Mini windows 7.
- Run from installed Windows XP/Vista/7.
