Rescue or Recovery Disk
« on: November 20, 2015, 10:02:15 AM »
Recently, I've had a spate of PC problems including start up, stalling at Windows Log On, stalling at Shut Down, resumption of Normal Start Up....stuck in Safe Mode.

Of course, there is a myriad of Rescue/Recovery Disks out there.  But one constructed by Shane would be a world beater.

TIA,

Geometer

I think Shane has enough to do :)

Just look at what is on a Hiren Boot Disk http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd

You could download and create it if you want to give it a once over - most of the utilities are free.

before i started using MSDART i Used this to boot into install's i still use it occasionally but I feel its better to fix a computer from within a live os compared to an offline os. unless the os i'm using has a dying disk or is having issues booting up http://www.sarducd.it/
