When Erik Eckel asked TechRepublic members what tools he needed in his troubleshooting and repair toolbox, several IT professionals recommended he carry a BartPE boot CD. Powered by PE Builder, a BartPE CD creates a preboot environment that simplifies troubleshooting and rescuing failed Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 systems. In this The Right Tool for the Job? post, Erik shows you how to use BartPE.To create a BartPE CD, download the self-installing program (pebuilder3110a.exe) and execute the program. The file is only 3.15MB.
