Alternatives to Hiren's BootCD for Linux with any license

  • MediCat USB

    MediCat USB is a complete Hiren's Boot Disk replacement for modern computers. 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.

  • Hiren’s BootCD PE

    Hiren’s BootCD PE (Preinstallation Environment) is a restored edition of Hiren’s BootCD based on Windows 10 PE x64. Since there are no official updates after November 2012, PE version is being developed by Hiren’s BootCD fans. It includes the least, best and updated free tools used in Hiren’s BootCD. It is being developed for the new age computers, it supports UEFI booting and requires minimum 2 GB RAM.

    • It is a “renewed” version of the old tool based on an updated version of Windows PE (based on Windows 10) and comes with many tools. However it does not contain ‘every’ option from the old one, the linux encironment is missing for example. It has worked wonderfully in the vast majority of systems I have booted it to.

  • All in One – System Rescue Toolkit

    From the site: "I have been a field service technician for many years, which means that I am out on my own fixing computers on-site and don’t always have the support of a shop or colleagues to help. Field service work requires one to be able to quickly and routinely get the problem diagnosed and solved right the first time, otherwise it means another trip back out to a client’s location. Why did I create this utility? There are already so many utility discs out there, I know.

    • It has an all in one toolkit running on Linux and another great tool running under windows as well. Moreover, all this stuff is up to date on May 2017 unlike HBCD ! Guest • Dec 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
