BootMed Plus: A Live CD to Help Diagnose and Fix your PC Problems

Umar 18-08-2012

If you have been using a Windows computer, then there might have been a few occasions where system failures caused your system to not boot. When this happens, you cannot run any system tools to diagnose the problem and solve it because you cannot start your computer in the first place. What you need then is a “fixing disc” or a “Live CD” that you can have in your CD drive as your computer starts up. The system will boot using the operating system on the disc and give you access to system files and tools that let you fix those booting problems. While you will find various such Live CD software, one of the best options you could with is called BootMed Plus.


diagnose fix pc problems

BootMed Plus is a Live CD software for Windows computers. The software comes as a disc image in the ISO format and is sized at nearly 600 MB. You mount this DVD on a virtual disc drive or simply write it to a physical disc to use. The physical disc can be used to boot into the BootMed Plus OS and perform numerous system fixing functions.

One of the prominent tasks that BootMed can perform is recover Windows registries from an automated backup created earlier. Corrupt registries can make applications behave dysfunctionally – the registry repair feature can fix that. Hard drive diagnostic tests and scanning for basic file system errors is another thing that you can do through the Live CD OS. Amongst the many other features offered by the Live CD, one of the most helpful ones is the password resetting feature: in case you have forgotten your Windows logon password, this feature can save a lot of important files of yours.


BootMed Plus costs its users $3.99 for a 3 months of access to its Downloads. But the developers of the app have generously offered 10 free licenses to the first 10 commenters on this post.



  • A user-friendly tool
  • Lets you run system diagnostic tools through a Live CD
  • Can restore your registry backups
  • Can search for errors on your hard disk
  • Can reset your Windows password
  • Can perform numerous other system fixing tasks

    I did not find this Live cd very useful.

    I am used to using all sorts of Linux based live cds and this is not one of the good ones.
    The main letdown is that the file manager on it does not appear to locate any of the other media on the computer system such as hard drives, Cd Roms etc. If you are in a situation where you are a trying to rescue and copy files from a hard drive then a good Live Cd file manager is essential.
    The only good thing about Bootcd is that it is quite a light Livecd and works well for internet use as it does appear to have good wireless network detection.
    However for a Live Cd in general for rescue and security purposes you would be better off with the likes of Knoppix, Peppermint 3, Lubuntu, Zorin, Parted Magic, or System Rescue cd. You can even put them on a usb flash drive as a multi boot recovery/securities utility using something called Yumi. (this would make the flash drive a sort of swiss army knife of computing)

    this live cd might be intended for recovering files and system maintenance only, unlike the other live cd's like ubuntu and backtrack that are not user friendly for recovering files and maintaining the system.

    So far I haven't had to go beyond using something like Hirens. But this looks promising.

    Very interesting. I would like to know whether the license is for 3 months or is valid for a longer period. I would of course be very happy to get one FREE. Thank you and thanks to BootMed Plus.

    This looks like it could be extremely helpful. I get so tired of playing around with different utilities and then finding out the system has a lock on the files I am trying to get rid of. It would be nice to have a boot image to do that for me and not worry about file locks. I am experienced IT professional and have used open source tools in the past I get tired of the complicated non-user friendly interfaces. If this does a bunch of operations with just a few clicks I am in.

    I have waiting for this to come out. I heard about it through a friend and am looking forward to add it to my PC diagnostic arsenal.

    I have seen the cd used a few times by another technition, looks like a great cd. The fact that the size of the boot cd is so small would be so good.

    Would it be able to recover anything if my computer will boot, but windows won't work? Anyways, I'd love a license!
