    Besides koldchillah and myself has anyone else...

    made the PE Builder boot CD yet?

    Why not?

    With a good boot CD like this, you don't need to rely on Windows (or Dos) to repair your OS when it flakes out.

    Make it (boot cd), before you break it (Window) and you will be better off.

    Its definitely worth it. I can't wait to see what Bart comes up with for his next update.. Seems every 3 or 4 days a new version is released with more fixes and modifications. Better grab this one up fellas, before its no longer freeware.

    This beats the $600 ERD Commander by a long shot... especially if you already have ERD Commander and you can import those features into this and have the baddest boot CD ever! mwwuuaahahahah!

    I'm wondering why this thing isn't being jumped on. So many people have PC problems (especially within Windows) that can't be repaired without a lot of hassle using other methods.

    Is it because this project is not understood ?

    I was wondering the same thing the FIRST time you posted about it ages ago. All it takes is a little bit of

    You know I have difficulties following guidelines. I'm the poster child for the reading impaired.

    This program will give me something to do on Sunday.

    I would say thats the case for me Norm

    I just dont understand why I would need a boot disk?

    I'm not sure that i really understand the purpose of a boot disk. < maybe thats a good thing?


    I have always been able to save or recover my files wether it be via safe mode back up and fdisk or by copying files from harddrive to another machine...

    maybe you could explain some? and maybe i will learn sumthin?

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    Bart updates this program every so often, so I recommend using a re-writable CD. It will also come in handy using a RW CD when/if you start using some of the plugins (like Anti Virus scans) because you will have to update them as well.



    This is called "The Next Generation Repair CD"
    Dos just doesn't cut it when OS's on NTFS filing systems need repairs.

    i never really needed a boot disk except at work to do a ghost image

    with a boot CD like this you can sit down at a computer that has a blank HD, bad OS, or no OS at all (possibly even no HD) and boot it up, possible surf the web, recover files, run adaware and various other add-in apps, ghost, antivirus, isobuster, etc. etc. etc.. quite useful for people who run into problems alot or just techs that want to create a good boot CD to get into any computer.

    Yes, I've heard about admins like you

    Can't fix it, just ghost it lol

    I get some business my way because I can fix it, without wiping it.
    I always used Dos in the past, but now with all these NTFS systems, Dos is useless.

    hehe

    in the corporate world it is faster and more efficient to just reimage if it that bad where OS cannot boot or corrupted

    I don't believe that. It may be easier, but not faster or more efficient when you consider all you need to backup before you ghost (that's if you can access/boot the OS)

    You of all people should learn more about how to repair a broken OS.

    I've seen people format and reinstall because the boot.ini file was corrupted, or missing.

    Doesn't make sense to me when it takes about a minute to write a boot.ini file

    That's just one example. Formatting, or ghosting is a last resort to me. Always will be, because I don't learn a thing by wiping the problem away.
