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. It is geared towards modern hardware, and loosely follows the Ubuntu release cycle with a newly-updated release every few months.

Thank you! great job!!! very useful :)
Worked as a tech irl and ive gotta say this stuff is useful..
Thanks for making this great tool.. I could really see the love that is put into creatin this.
Thank you, new version out at the end of this month!
In here it marked as "Open source" but I couldn't find the source code anywhere. Besides I saw some virus reports in the forum (marked as official website in here) that seems serious.
It's marked as open source because all the syslinux configs are plaintext files in .cfg format. Anyone can read and modify them. All virus reports are false-positives because of how the password recovery apps work.
great tool, thank you!
if its possible please add version for one layer dvd :)
Thanks for the comment! (I'm locked out of my other account because it was linked to a Facebook I don't have anymore)
Currently MediCat DVD has outgrown a single-layer DVD-R, so a DVD-R DL 8.5GB disc or 8GB USB stick is required. USB 3.0 recommended, USB 2.0 works, but creating the USB will take far more time and boot slower.
Great software set. Thank you for creating this awesome tool to follow up on Hirens.
Free and regularly updated. (6 month release cycle) Everything you could want in a repair image.
Is it possible to install permanently software to Windows? e.g. RAID controller drivers?
Graphically enhanced, no trans-fats included, torrent distribution, useful tool !
Hi, MediCat looks really great. Is there a way to change the keyboard ? A French keyboard would be highly appreciated. No need to translate any menu. That is fine. But keying a "q" to get a french "a" is pretty uncomfortable !
I can not see the download link?
Open the Website link, and they're in the first post as buttons. Google Drive, Mega, and a torrent are all available.
Actively developed, great ease of use and contains a lots of useful tools for sysadmins.
I'm creating a bootable USB with YUMI including various boot cds.
Had some trouble with Win Defender blocking certain files while creating the USB. Figure their for password changing and such things, so not worried about that. But as what kind should i instal it to USB ? Been installing the tools that are not in the premade list of YUMI as Single PE, and most do work. But non of these ISO say if it is PE or gumi or Linux. So would be handy if developers of such Boot cd-USB tools would mention what system it needs to fit.
For those testing these tools as said Single PE works on most of these.
This isn't made with multiboot in mind, unless you want to add to it. It needs to be written to USB with Rufus, or with YUMI and the "Medicat" setting.
you did a great Job :) thanks
Up to date, customizable, and very complete boot USB.
