    Hello every one.. new to this forum :)

    I wish to create a system boot CD that works on windows XP, Vista and 7. I am suspecting bad sectors have partially corrupted a HDD, and I need to get in with some sort of HDD diagnostic tool. Can anyone please give me a pointer as to where I can get a free trusted download??

    thanks in advance

    Hard to reply such question !!
    For me don't waste to build boot CD, if you want take nero and google to know how
    For Vista and Win7 it 's a DVD so if you have an old Bios on the MB you 'll need additional Disk file on floppy or Key to boot on
    For me Try first a simple prog : Partiton Recovery 3 then you can try Undelete for losted files.

    Are you kidding? How can you create a system boot CD that works on 3 OS?

    I would suggest you just simply dl 3 OS .iso files and burn with Nero 9, maybe in total XP[~0.6GB] / Vista[~2.5GB] / 7[~2.3GB] = 1CD / 1DVD / 1DVD
    You could either reinstall 3 OS or rescue your system using the 3 OS disks.
    I used to do this and build another DVD storing the sw setups (.exe).

    (are you serious? you still need vista?
    This is my order of preferences:
    1. XP + SP3 (extreme light)
    2. 7
    3. Chromium os (waiting for free Chrome OS)
    4. maybe Snow Leopard (I haven't tried it before, but I like the screenshots)
    5. Vista??
    6. Solaris / Linux)
