    Free Windows Linux Easy2Boot RMPrepUSB UNetbootin ... YUMI Rufus Universal USB Installer Website

    Hiren's Boot Disk was great for the Windows XP, Vista, and 7 era of computing. Unfortunately it was discontinued in 2012, with FalconFour's Ultimate Boot CD following it's demise in 2013. So I took on the honor of bringing forth an up-to-date boot disk for everyone. MediCat USB aims to replace the discontinued and dated Hiren's Boot Disk. It is geared towards modern hardware, and follows the Ubuntu release cycle with a newly-updated release every 6 months.

    "Can I run the PortableApps on my current PC without MediCat?"
    Yes, just mount the MediCat USB, and open Start.exe to launch the platform. These are the same exact apps that get loaded within Mini Windows 10. So if you update them, they will show up updated in Mini Windows 10 as well.

    "Is it free?"
    Absolutely. I will never charge money for MediCat, or accept donations. However, fell free to share your ideas, questions, and concerns in this thread:
    That's how you can give back. :)

    "How often will this be updated?"
    Every 6 months (April and October). The links here will always be the latest version.

    "This won't fit on a DVD-R, can you make a smaller version that will fit?"
    No, I cannot. But feel free to edit the ISO with UltraISO and remove whatever you won't need to make it fit. I release "NAKED" builds that don't come with any PortableApps, so people can create their own utility USB stick with their own collection of portable applications.

    "The USB stick won't boot up, I just boot into Windows."
    Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from a USB drive first. If using a PC with a UEFI firmware, try disabling Secure Boot, and enable legacy/CSM booting if the option is there. Alternatively, there's usually an F-key Boot Menu you can bring up during POST. (Mine is F12, yours may be F2, F9, F10, F11, F12, etc.)


  • DLC Utilities Boot CD

    Free Windows Website

    DLC Boot 2016 is a rescue disk that is used as a Recovery CD. The point is that if you are having problems such as Windows can not boot, missing MBR, want to format the hard drive, remove viruses and so on, you can simply use the DLC Boot 2016 to resolve the issue. DLC Boot 2016 is also able to backup / restore windows partition, create partition windows, entering a locked Windows passwords, and much more!

    DLC Boot 2016 has the same function with Hiren's Boot DVD. However, the DLC Ultimate Boot 2016 more gress / new / latest compared Hiren's Boot who was too old school. Supporting applications that exist within the DLC Boot in 2016 alone quite a lot and more complete than Hiren's Boot CD.

    • Integrated Mini Windows 10 32Bit, 64Bit Windows 10 because their Mini editing (Editing, Music, Movies, USB 3.0, USB 3G, UEFI), was built environment similar to Windows XP Mini Hiren's Version

    • Integrated Mini Windows XP deducted from Hiren's Version 15.2 and has been built, optimized again.


  • TestDisk icon

    TestDisk is a powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.
