This video will show you how to create and run the ‘Hiren’s BootCD 15.2’ which has many features including the removing or bypassing of a windows password, using mini xp and linux modes, virus removal tools. disk and backup utilities and many useful DOS and BIOS tools, all conveniently placed on one CD-ROM.

More information and a complete list of all the utilities on the ‘Hiren’s BootCD 15.12 can be found on this website:

For my other video on How to run the Hiren’s BootCD 15.2 from a USB Flash Drive:

If you are having trouble booting from the CD, watch my video on ‘How to change the boot order in the BIOS’ here:

This CD is functional with windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 and linux (but not Mac).

Types of CDs that I have tested (with success) are: CD Re-Writable (700mb – Philips) and DVD+R (4.7gb – imation) and DVD-R (4.7gb both Philips and Tesco). Mind you, the company of each CD is near irrelevant. This is not an exclusive list of course, but it is the list of CDs that I have personally tested with success. Most CD-ROMs will work though. You’d be unlucky if it doesn’t work with a CD-ROM that you purchase.

Booting from CD Troubleshooting Guide:
If your computer does not boot from the CD automatically, then you will need to enter the boot selection menu and choose the ‘CD’ or ‘CDROM’ (or something similar) to boot from the CD, like shown in this video. The key on your keyboard that you have to press to get to the boot selection menu varies depending on your computer. The key on my computer is F8 but it may be different on yours. The key for your computer is often shown at the bottom of the first screen that appears when you turn on your computer; something like: Press ‘F8’ to enter boot menu. In the unlikely event that you can’t work out what your boot menu key is or your computer doesn’t have one, then checkout this extensive guide on the Hiren’s BootCD official website:

If you are still unable to boot from the cd after thoroughly reading and trying the procedures above, then don’t hesitate to contact me through the comments of this video.

Shame is I haven't backed up loads of files on there & would hate to lose them can someone please anyone Help or have any suggestions? Only options I have are F 10 gets me to a screen that takes up all monitor & reads across the very top "Edit Boot Options" (black letters white background) then below in black background w-white letters reads:
    Edit Windows boot options for: Windows 7

    Path: windowwssystem32winload.exe

    [ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN (Cursor sets there after the N in OPTIN and only allows me to either delete back to the " [ " and erase all up to that [ (bracket) or I can type stuff in and hit Enter which has only brought me back to the same original boot up page saying error and Only gives 2 options try Recovery which does Nothing or Start Windows 7 which also does nothing)
