Don't complain what-so-ever that it is useless to you, your needs, or doesn't do what it's supposed to do!! Apparently you have no idea what the "beta" of betanews means, nor what "alpha" means regarding software releases!!

useless for my needs, WesternDigital HDD software didnt run in version 5.02 of this because of a missing License.txt file so couldnt run that check on it, , spinrite didnt see the drive at all, drive is an usb external, WD MYBOOK, most of the programs are old outdated versions from running the few that i did actually run.

Excellent set of utilities. Have been using Ultimatebootcd since version 1.0. Highly recommended for any PC tech.
Not to bad. Its a all in one package. Seems to have most of the bases covered. Nice part is that you can put about 600mb of things on it as well as the main program
Not much to say really apart from its a life saver and i wish i discovered it when the first version came out, i have recomended it to everyone i know and they and i all very happy with it :-)

A must-have !!! Can save your computer

Every computer tech or admin must have this CD in its toolbox.

Very usefull to "simple" user too ;)

Testing fine, this latest release.

Question though - Does this contain any programs that are similar in function to ScanDisk / ChkDsk / Norton Disk Doctor, et-all?

I would like to be able to boot to this CD and be able to run such an application, but I'm more familiar with Bart's PE and that interface than I am with this character driven interface and the accompanying contents.

I'd really appreciate some help on that information . Thanks.

So vote a 4 for one version, and a 5 the next. repeat.

I don't recommend using this on a VM. You could damage a host with this CD. Use only when you know WTF you are doing.

May not be the Best at what it does, but it's legal and open source and can be extremely helpful.

I do think they might want to create a supplemental version with a better interface, sort of like what DigiWiz did with PE Builder. Some of these apps can be pretty hard to figure out for people that are only used to GUI's, and perhaps they could make it more user friendly with more help files and wizard-type assistance.

Still, a very solid effort. Too bad they can't bundle Norton Ghost 2003 for DOS and Spinrite 6 in that bad boy. That'd be cool if they could get the companies to donate those tools under the GPL or some such thing.

Also, you may want to experiment with this in a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox, VirtualPC, VMware, etc.) until you become familiar with it. Some things can't easily be undone if you do them and they don't work out as expected.

Lastly, ALWAYS to a backup before making any significant changes to your rig. Hard drives are less expensive per gig than ever, it seems, so a good backup is well within reach for most computer users, I think. Better safe than sorry.

Please keep up the good work.

BTW, I do sorta wish we could vote for a 4.5 score. I think it deserves that, but not a 5. But I understand the appeal in keeping things simple.

@langloisc
If you took hirens, and substituted it with freeware and GPL software, you would have ubcd.

I use this at work constantly. Very easy to dump to a thumb drive and away you go. A bit of a learning curve to customize it. But out of the box, it can fix most problems that one would come across.

Hiren's boot CD is also a copywrite and EULA nightmear due to the fact that many of those programs are commercial are not allowed to be distributed that way.

As for the ultimate boot Cd, keep up the great work guys!
