Ultimate Boot CD
An invaluable collection of recovery and diagnostics software!

Ultimate Boot CD is the most impressive collection of recovery/diagnostic tools we've seen in a long time. The crew at have done a fantastic job creating this invaluable resource. It includes every recovery/diagnostic utility you could imagine needing/wanting, everything from disk recovery, partition editing, antivirus, memory testing, system benchmarking, burn in testing, BIOS utilities, etc. See the huge list below for specifics.

Here are just a few of the things you can do with this CD:

  • Want to upgrade your hard drive? Did you buy a new hard drive and now you want to move everything including your operating system to the new hard drive? This CD includes several applications you can use to clone your hard drive.
  • Are you locked out of Windows because you forgot your password or the administrator password? Using this CD you can reset account passwords.
  • Does your computer refuse to boot into Windows and you need to copy your files off the hard drive? Using this CD you can, either to another hard drive, or across the network to another computer.
  • Is Windows crashing and reporting memory errors? Using this CD you can thoroughly test your memory.
  • Want to add a new operating system and dual boot to your old one? Using this CD you can install a boot manager.
  • Installing a new hard drive? Using this CD you'll be able to easily setup and even resize partitions.
  • Bought a new computer and want to thoroughly test it before the return period ends? Using this CD you can thoroughly "burn in" the computer and check for the most common hardware problems.
  • and much more...

When you boot up from the CD, a text-based menu will be displayed, and you will be able to select the tool you want to run. This CD is useful for people of all skill levels, but you will need to exercise good judgement and use the applications provided wisely.

The people at Ultimate Boot have generously allowed us to redistribute their amazing diagnostic/recovery CD. For more information about their project and/or to directly download the software from them, please visit their site. Want to know more, consult the Ultimate Boot CD FAQ.
