The importance of having a good boot disk seems to be a no brainer. Through the years, technicians have relied on boot disks to get PCs set up or back in working condition. Over the last year, I have thrown all disks out except one. And, it is needed almost every day.
Back in the day, it would have been an ultimate boot disk. I have replaced it with Hiren’s boot disk. I find Hiren’s to have a dream list of programs that can smoothly turn the tides on some of the most stubborn PCs. If you have not heard of Hiren’s, I suggest looking into it either on Google or via their website. I find Hiren’s to have the largest collection of and most up-to-date software. Hiren’s also has a mini Win XP mode to boot into with a lot of programs that are able to run with a GUI interface. This makes it much easier to make heads or tails out of menus, options and help files.
