What do you all think of my custom repair cd/iso?
I'm just about done with many hours creating a one stop shop multiboot iso for computer diagnostics. This will make my job easier and workplace cleaner. I named it BullDozer after my brother (Jozer the BullDozer) but that got changed to B.L.D.Z.R after I stumbled upon the use of an acronym. "Boot Loader Disc of Zenith Repair"
 
CDv Multiboot Iso Info
Interface: PICTURE
Total Size: 601MB
Includes: The iso's you see in the picture as well as 30+ installers (171MB) for Diagnostic, Virus Removal, Recovery software, etc...
Seven: Win 7 64Bit repair only, Linux: Commodo for boottime & data transfer, Active@ = Disk cloning & Windows pswrd removal.
 
DVDv includes:
XP: Home, Pro, Repair & install
Vista HP: 32bit & 64bit, repair only.
Win 7: 32bit & 64bit, repair only.
And more installers!
 
DVD-DLv (mainly laptops) includes:
All of the previous plus BackTrack 5 and/or TechTools for Mac, etc...

Hi,

While as repair kit, this appears useful, without knowing how exactly you created this, please keep in mind that the usage of copyright-protected files in a package as you have is only allowed if you create it using the original source (Windows installation disk). From the screenshot it appears you use a linux environment, but the usage of Windows install/recovery applications is subject to Microsoft's EULA which prohibits distributing files that belong to this software.


regards, Elise

The previous post makes sense for installing windows, I don't know if it is applicable to my setup but the provided Windows 7 is repair ONLY. Created from a licensed and registered version of Win 7. MicroSoft likely still includes this in their EULA but I'll take the risk. You have any other alternatives that will repair the Win 7 MBR/Boot? Run chkdsk/sfc scannow?

There are various ways to do this really. The best freeware utility that will run on both Windows and Linux hosts is TestDisk.

For some things, like a BCD repair (when a backup isn't available) you can only use a Windows environment though. Repair disks are perfectly legit, but may not be redistributed, you can only create one legitimately if have a valid Windows installation that supports this feature (generally speaking).
