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.
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.
you did a great Job :) thanks
Up to date, customizable, and very complete boot USB.
Good software used it many times, but its hard for me to download again. If it was in parts to download it would be better. I dunno why its such an issue to download but thats is the only issue I have trying to get it again.

Try using a Download Manager, it works for me (3mbps conection)
I may have to try that. I have spotty internet in my area and it frustrating how ATT treats people in rual areas like where I am located. I'm going to try a Torrent first.
Great software set. Thank you for creating this awesome tool to follow up on Hirens.
