Simple BootCD for DriveImage XML

Positive Comment by sivulabill
about DriveImage XML Mar 2012

(HBCD) Hiren's BootCT (v15.1) (free zipped 500MB ISO-file)
is a ready-to-burn bootCD that includes DriveImage XML (v2.30),
and additional diagnostic/rescue softwares.
http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd
If placed on a bootable flash drive, and a live internet connection exists,
the User can update malware definitions for six anti-malware softwares.
Per Wikipedia.org, this software may still include some (illegal?)commercial software.
(On Mar 2, 2011, I only found "Mini-Windows-XP" in the listing for v15.1).
