Hirens Boot CD 14.1 Restored Edition v1.0

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, 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.

Note that the options include a couple of Linux rescue environments

which provide many powerful tools for solving and repairing

Windows and Linux problems.

  • 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


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).

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.
