The Winternals' ERD Commander 2005 boot process appears similar to that used by Windows XP

Rescue boot CDs are plentiful. Numerous ISO images populate the Internet. From Hiren'sBootCD to a BartPE disk, numerous options exist for rescuing failed systems quickly. Not all are legal, and some are outright flaky.

If you work within a larger enterprise you'd be well served to take a look at Winternals Software's ERD Commander 2005. A core component of Winternals' $1,439 Administrator's Pak, ERD Commander 2005 isn't cheap. But with the investment comes a collection of powerful utilities you can use with confidence to repair failed systems. Best of all, it's completely legal.

Too bad the discoverer of the infamous Sony Root Kit Virus sold out to the evil empire...we shall never see such innovation in windows tools for a long time...If you do please advise me.....Good night Mark Russovich........ Some of the tools can now be found on the Microsoft website, search for Microsoft Winternals Tools

JP, We bought it last December. I called (512) 330-9130 and got the info for our purchasing department. I *think* I was talking to a Winternals employee who was just there taking orders. It's been awhile, so I'm not sure what's going on now. I asked about support, and this guy said MS probably would "for awhile" - whatever that means. So far, I haven't needed support. Regardless, this is a great product. It already made a save that justified (for me) its high cost.
