This edition of the Restored HBCD is a bug fix release of the previous version (V 1.0). Mini windows has been further improved, Kaspersky Rescue Disk is finally perfected and boots equally well from DVD or USB.
Several new utilities have been added or upgraded and some faulty ones have been fixed. The aim of this Hiren?s Boot CD Rebuild is to provide an austere but convenient and usable interface to the utilities whilst keeping faith with Hiren?s original concept. No fancy splash screens or wallpapers. Just hotkeyed menus to get you quickly to the utilities you want to use.

Hiren?s Boot CD is a vast collection of bootable and portable
utilities for the management, diagnosis and repair of computer
problems, recover lost or deleted files or cracking passwords. There
is no computer problem for which HBCD does not have at least one tool
to help with its solution. In addition, HBCD provides the means to
take control of any computer and communicate with other computers,
surf the internet, write documents or programs, without booting the
installed operating system. There are literally hundreds of utilities
and it is advised that you explore the contents before the need for
it arises. Hiren?s Boot CD can be used in two ways:
* As a boot CD to take control of the computer without starting the
 installed operating system so that we can do repairs or clone the
 main disk, recover files, test the memory and hardware, clean
 severe viral infections, et.c. To do any of these simply boot the
 computer from the CD and select a utility from the menu. Options
 include FreeDOS, 3 Mini Windows environments (98, XP and 7) and
 two Linux rescue environments. Optionally you may include the
 forensics/penetration Linux live CD Backtrack.
* As a collection of portable repair and diagnostic utilities which
 can be run from within Windows without installation. To do this
 insert the CD when Windows is running and select a utility from
 the HBCD Program Launcher menu. If the CD does not autorun you
 may start the menu by running HBCDMenu.cmd. When the operating
 system not functional or unavailable the portable utilities may
 be still be used if we boot a Mini Windows environment included
 in the CD. (3rd option of the main boot menu).
For example Acronis Disk Director can be started in 4 ways:
* Boot the CD, select "Dos Programs", "Restored Utilities" and then
 "Acronis". (useful if we wish to clone or restore the main hard
 disk and there is not enough memory to boot Mini Windows XP).
* Boot the CD, and from the main menu from the "Hard Disk
 Utilities" select "Acronis".
* Boot the CD, select "Mini Windows XP" or Mini Windows 7 and then
 select "Acronis Disk Director" found under "Partittion/Boot/MBR"
 in the HBCD Program Launcher menu.
* Boot to your windows operating system, insert the DVD (or the USB
 stick) and select Acronis Disk Director from the HBCD Program
 Launcher menu.
This Restored DVD includes all the utilities found in the latest
Hiren?s Boot CD 15.2 (December 2012). [1] with many of the utilities
updated to their latest version. It is called Restored because it
contains all the commercial utilities omitted from the official
releases (since version 11.0.) It also includes other tools such by
Acronis, Paragon, Active@, and other useful software fully integrated
within Hiren?s menus.
Below are listed only the additional or updated programs and

Installation Instructions and Important Notes
* Burn (preferably at the lowest possible speed) the iso image to a
 dvd, insert the dvd in a computer and boot from it.
* For installation to USB read document usb-installation.pdf
* For keyboards other than English you can still apply Hiren?s
 keyboard patch.
* To add the forensics distro BackTrack, read document
* To reduce size of DVD to CD or to fit in a smaller GB USB stick
 read file trim-dvd.txt
* Read document install-win-with-hbcd.pdf, a guide for how to
 install windows from USB.
* Mini Windows XP and Mini Windows 7 run from RAM. If you start one
 program after another you will soon run out of memory. So clean
 the temp folder from time to time.
* The HBCD program launcher (and many portable utilities) are
 incompatible with 64 bit Windows 7. Use them only within 32 bit
 windows, Mini Windows XP and Mini Windows 7.
Kudos and thanks to:
* Ha Canh Son, for the idea and development of using WinMount for
 running portable utilities in WindowsPE and for his numerous
 tips, suggestions, testing and scripts.
* DimTam, for supplying many updates, testing, corrections and

Note on virus alerts
Compressed files such as Nirsoft.7z, Mix.7z and possibly others, may
contain utilities such as, commands which can alter registry or
system files, password scanners, ip sniffers, registry scanners etc.
These utilities, although are legitimate, are often employed by
trojans, malware, etc, and as such may raise erroneous virus alerts.
Although these utilities by themselves pose no real threat, if you
are concerned about this, you may delete them from the DVD/USB but
you will have reduced functionality. For example, without Nirsoft?s
nircmd.exe Mini Windows will not function properly. See also: https://
