Hiren Boot CD 15.2 Restored Feautures

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.

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.

  1. Hi,
    If I use Hiren Boot CD –> Mini Windows XP and use internet on that, will the traces of internet usage remain in the original system i.e. in original WinXP?


    1. No
      There is no chance of remaining anything which you access on Internet , because when you us mini xp your ram act as a Secondary storage

  2. Is there somewhere that the latest “restored” version can be out-right downloaded without using torrent(s)?

  3. Also, if someone finds a working regular download link or page, please back it up in both wayback machines.

  4. Asking questions are really nice thing if you are not understanding anything
    entirely, except this paragraph gives good understanding even.
