How to Create a Hirens Boot CD Usb

We describe how to Create a Hirens Boot CD Usb memory stick ( ash drive) and how the later can be made bootable using exclusively tools provided by the HBCD. The quickest and most accurate method is to use Linux command line tools, however Windows can be also used with equally good results.

How to Create a Hirens Boot CD Usb

How to Create a Hirens Boot CD Usb Windows Method

  • Insert Hiren’s Restored BootCD, boot the computer from it and select Mini Windows XP.
  • Insert a 4GB (or larger) USB stick.1 Warning: All data on the USB stick will be erased.

Run the USB Format Tool, found in the HBCD Program Launcher, under the item Programs – Parti-


  •  Format the stick as shown.


  • Determine the letters of the CD and USB drives (Look in My Computer).
  • Copy all the les from CD to USB. For this you may Drag-and-Drop”(slow) or use one of the utilities found in the HBCD menu, like FastCopy or TeraCopy (look for them under Backup) or Total Commander, or even use the dos command: xcopy X:*.* Y: /E, where X and Y are CD and USB letters respectively.

Go to My Computer, nd the CD, right click on the bootprog subfolder and then ‘Command Promt Here

  • In the console window type the command:
  •  In the console window type the command:
    syslinux.exe -maf -d isolinux Y:
    where Y: is the USB drive.


  • This command installs the bootloader, the MBR and activates the USBfor booting.
  •  Safely remove the stick and test for booting.

How to Create a Hirens Boot CD Usb by Alternative Windows Method

The utility RMPepUSB (found in Partition/Boot/MBR of the HBCD program launcher menu) can format,
copy the les, and install the bootloader in one go. However it takes a very long time to copy the les.


  • Set the utility’s options as shown below and click Prepare Drive. Unless you are familiar with this utility do not meddle with any of the other settings.




  • Wait (copying the les takes a long time with this utility; so be patient) and, when prompted, answer the two questions as indicated in the screenshots shown below:



  • When asked type the bootloader folder name: isolinux (without backslash).


How to Create a Hirens Boot CD Usb by Linux Method

  • Insert Hiren’s Restored BootCD, boot the computer from it and select Parted Magic Linux (the 5th option of the main menu).
  •  Insert a 4GB (or larger) USB stick.2 Warning: All data on the USB stick will be erased.
  •  Open a console window (e.g. LXTerminal) and type the following commands exactly as they appear in the list bellow after you replace the xx’s with what is appropriate for your USB flash drive e.g. sdb1 or sdc1.3 Warning: If you get xx wrong you may erase your hard disk.
Command Explanation
In case the stick has been
umount /dev/sdxx already automounted,
unmount it rst.
mkfs.vfat -F32 -n HBCD /dev/sdxx Format the stick.
mkdir /mnt/cdrom Create a CD mountpoint.
mount /dev/sdxx /mnt/usb Mount the stick.
mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom Mount the CD.
cp -Rfv /mnt/cdrom/* /mnt/usb/ Copy les to the stick,
and wait for some time...
syslinux -i -d isolinux /dev/sdxx Install the bootloader.
dd if=/usr/share/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sdx Install the bootloader's MBR.
parted /dev/sdx set 1 boot on Make the stick active, i.e. bootable.
sync Flush any pending buered data.


  • Note: In the last two commands before sync, sdx must be a device e.g., sdb or sdc, and not a partition sdb1 or sdc1.
  •  Reboot the computer and test the stick for booting.

Hiren Boot CD 15.2 Restored Feautures

Hirens’ Boot DVD 15.2 Restored Edition V 2.0 (After May 2012)

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.

Hiren Boot CD 15.2 Restored Feautures

This edition includes many new utilities, many have been updated and the selection menus have been improved. Yet the size is considerably reduced so that it can fit in a 2 Gb USB flash memory stick.


Hiren boot cd 15.2 Restored Feautures

It also includes other tools such by Acronis, Paragon, Active, and other useful software fully integrated within Hiren’s menus.
In addition it now includes the option to add tools such as Backtrack or Geek Squad’s MRI (Detailed instructions included).

Below are listed only the additional programs and utilities found in this DVD.

Optional self booting utilities

For the following packages there are menu entries, but you need to download and include the iso images yourself. Detailed instructions are included as to how to do this. Read document ‘add-optional-utils.pdf’.

SysRescueCD [2]
A live Linux Gentoo based rescue CD (choice of 32 or 64 bit). It includes many tools for rescuing and managing Linux and windows systems. Hundreds of utilities. e.g. Clam antivirus, Gparted, ntfs-3g, wifi access, syslinux, telnet, ssh, vim, mc, etc., and most important: PXE network booting.

An Ubuntu based Linux live CD for digital forensics and penetration (sic) testing. It includes many well known security (or hacking) tools, e.g. Aircrack, Ophcrack, Gerix Wifi Cracker, disassemblers, sniffers, etc., as well as commonplace applications such as browsers, file managers, editors, torrent clients, etc.

A privacy oriented linux live CD. It contains everything one needs (browsers, messaging, e-mail, office, etc.) preconfigured with security in mind. Tail internet connectivity relies on the Torr anonymity network to protect privacy. Thus internet connections cannot be traced back. It also leaves no trace on the computer it uses.

Geek Squad’s diagnostics and repair disk it is not free software. I find it cumbersome and slow whilst not offering anything more than the tools we already have on HBCD. Some people, however, want to integrate it with

Important Notes

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. A command for this is provided in the Program Launcher.

Mini Windows 7 is somewhat slow to start up because it loads some drivers. So be patient and give it time. Also it now has the same desktop background as Mini XP so do not be confused.

The HBCD program launcher and some of the portable utilities are incompatible with 64 bit Windows 7. Use only within 32 bit installed Windows, else you can boot Mini Windows from DVD and use them from there.



How to Use Hiren Boot CD

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.

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, etc. To do any of these simply boot the computer from the CD and select a utility from the menu. Options include 3 Mini Windows environments (98, XP and 7) and a Linux rescue environment.
  • 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).
