Computer Repair Tools That I Can’t Live Without (Part 9: Hiren’s BootCD On A USB Flash Drive)

Hello everyone,

In the past year and a half or so I’ve repaired over 300 computers. In this series I’m describing the very repair tools that I use daily. If you would like, you can see the entire series by following these links: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8.

Without question, my most versatile computer repair tool is the Hiren’s BootCD. This incredible bootable CD contains almost every computer repair software tool known to man! How would you like to have one piece of equipment that contained the following tools:

Antivirus Tools, Backup Tools, BIOS/CMOS Tools, Browsers/File Managers, Cleaning Tools, Device Driver Tools, Editing/Viewing Tools, FileSystem Tools, Hard Disk Tools, MBR Tools, MS-DOS Tools, Network Tools, Optimizing Tools, Partition Tools, Password Tools, Recovery Tools, Registry Tools, Remote Access Tools, Security/Encryption Tools, Startup Tools, System Information Tools, Testing Tools, Tweak Tools and more!!

Hiren’s BootCD is simply a “dream come true” for a computer repair technician. Version 15.0 was just released a couple of weeks ago and it is just awesome. The bootable CD is great, but even better is having Hiren’s on a bootable flash drive. It’s almost unimaginable having all of those tools on a 3″ flash drive, but it is true.

I just put the Hiren’s BootCD on a SanDisk 1GB flash drive and now I have a complete computer repair kit in my pocket! Since the flash drive is bootable, the computers operating system doesn’t even have to be functioning in order for repairs to be made. How cool is that?

This is the video that I followed to install Hiren’s BootCD on a flash drive. Great stuff. Enjoy your tool kit!
