 HiRens Boot CD [[http://​www.hiren.info/​pages/​bootcd]]. My favorite utility CD. More than 30 different tools for just about everything that could go wrong on a computer. It is a liveCD that boots into either Linux, DOS, or WindowsPE(( Windows PE is the preboot environment that is on a Windows installer CD/DVD.
