    [@Ashraf] Not sure what was causing the problem, likely it was on my end. Took your suggestion and I was able to access it from my iPhone using Safari. I still could not access my SOS Account this morning from my computer, But was able to this afternoon (about 2:30 pm EST). Google Chrome updated just before I did login… maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway I am now able to spend lots of hours getting all the great software you offer here. Thanks

    [@ErnieBell44] Odd. Try using a different browser. You can also recover your password. Also, we should have emailed you when you got it from us — you can download it from your email directly.

    Ashraf: I have bee trying to download this for the past hour (approx 12:30am est – 1:20am est) but your site is not recognizing me automatically and or when I type in my email and password. In other words unable to access My Account. I have shut down and re booted computer But still can not access my account. At first it gave error message saying wrong email/password. Now when I enter my login info and hit enter Page simply flickers and returns to blank login page. Any idea what is going on?

    I appreciated the Boot Genius Rescue Disk. The format is clearly laid out and although I checked out each sub category, I wasn’t in need of using any at this point in time. The password finder worked perfectly. Thanks!

    The installed program’s folder has the Tenorshare_Windows_Boot_Genius.ISO that you can burn however you like if there’s burning software you like better. There are also several tools online to make a USB stick bootable using an ISO like this [ ], or make it bootable with a boot menu where you can choose which ISO you want to boot. Or several of the older Paragon giveaways [their latest backup app doesn't include this feature] let you create a bootable USB stick using an ISO — in some you have to replace the ISO that came with the Paragon app, & in others you can select which ISO you want to use.

    Mention that other software for using the ISO on USB in case it works better for you, or just simply works if you have problems using Tenorshare’s built-in function to put the ISO on a bootable USB device. USB sticks & hard drive housings can be tricky devils, especially if you’re always broke like I am, and because of that buy the cheapest rather than the best. I’ve got USB sticks & drive housings that only work with some software.

    I’ve got several sort of bootable mini-Windows setups [some WinPE, some not] that I made using tools I downloaded from — they can’t supply the Windows setup discs, so basically you have to supply that disc or ISO, & run an app that does the work for you. The reason I’ve got several is that mileage varies — some don’t work on some PCs/laptop, & some may work as CDs, some may work on USB sticks. I think *maybe* that’s what’s Marcus is up against with the Boot Genius disc stalling during startup, since we had a couple of PCs that would not run anything WinPE — they would however run LiveXP, which while not as nice & user friendly as Boot Genius, is still usable.

    [@Ruslan] **IF** the hardware is very similar cloning the drive/partition might work, though you might want or need to update drivers in Windows. I had 3 AMD boards go bad (!!!) & kept the same win7 install throughout different brands/models of motherboards. If they’re a LOT different, e.g. going AMD to Intel, re-install Windows & software, or perform a Windows Repair install, or use migration software [like some of Paragon's apps] that will go into the registry & delete driver entries so Windows will [hopefully] look for & find the needed drivers when it starts. I haven’t tried this since XP — never tried it in Vista/7/8 — I’ve gone into Device Mgr. & removed drivers, then shut down Windows, not starting it again until it was hooked up to new hardware, & that worked.

    You *might* get away putting Bitdefender into game mode, or set an exception for the Boot Genius setup file in the AV part, or move the AV slider all the way down or just turn AV off. In extreme cases I’ve had to go into Safe Mode, & if/when that didn’t work, while in Safe Mode disable Bitdefender’s AV service before rebooting back into win7.

    Or… Install the free 7-zip if you don’t have it already, then right-click WindowsBootGeniusFull.exe & from the 7-zip context menu select Extract to WindowsBootGeniusFull\ . Then look inside the sub-folder $COMMONFILES\ Windows Boot Genius\ for the ISO. Then unless you prefer something else, ImgBurn for CD, rufus for USB to make that ISO usable.

    Something else that may or may not come into the picture with UEFI is how the motherboard &/or bios handle UEFI & GPT vs. the older style setups & MBR drives. We’ve had motherboards that when they saw a CD/DVD boot disc went into the older mode, & so you had to use USB. AFAIK there’s no standard way to handle that sort of thing — it’s up to the manufacturer — so just something to maybe be aware of in case you run into problems.

    HelP! Bitdefender, which I finally got here yesterday, (and love) is preventing from installing boot genius because of the lack of security cert, BitDef too new yet to know how to fix. Any suggestions, as freebie time v short. Don’t even know how to ask BitDef yet, all too new…..;((

    I found out why my Win 8.1 (64) laptop would not boot from the CD. UEFI Bios is for WIN 8 and will not boot anything else. I had to go into the BIOS and disable secure boot under the security tab and under Advanced – > System Configuration change UEFI Boot to CSM Boot. Boot Genius then booted off the DVD I had burned.
    Downside is later I had to go back into the BIOS and undo everything I had done to be able to boot my WIN 8 system! Learned something :) Hope this helps some other frustrated WIN 8 users!

    Program installs without a hitch, but when I run it to create a bootable 2 GB USB drive, it gives the message: “Copying Memdisk to usb…Failed!” I ran it multiple times, re-downloaded from both links, and tried it again multiple times with each download. but it’s always the same error. Each time I’m offered the option to scan and fix the problem, and I do so. It always reports the problems were fixed and says the problem was that the actual size of Memdisk did not match its reported size. Although it successfully reformats the USB drive each time, I’m wondering if the error could indicate a bad USB drive since no one else has reported this problem.

    [@G] I think they mean restore the data on a corrupt drive.

    ah ok…you may be right but if you restore data on a corrupt drive the problem is not solved, is it? And anyway why the heck restore it on a corrupt drive instead of a working one? It doesn’t make sense to me….

    Downloaded, installed, burned the CD no problem.
    I test it out by letting it to remove my windows password. Reboot the machine *** BLUE SCREEN ** something about bad header. I followed the instruction to the teeth but something went very wrong. Any suggestions?
    I am now trying to get my PC back up and running by doing a start-up repair. Not sure how much good that will do. Software looked really great but the blue screen crashing my PC is not so good.

    [@Arek] Please don’t post the same comment twice, in two places. I replied to your other comment: ” Did you read Terms and Conditions listed above? Both the freebie and this discounted sale are v2.0.0.1 — they are both the exact same. The difference is, the freebie cannot be updated to future versions — this discounted sale can, when those future versions are released of course.” When new versions are released, you will be able to download the new version if you purchase the free lifetime updates one. Contact Tenorshare for more details.

    I bought the lifetime version and downloaded the free version.
    These two files are exactly the same! Are no different.
    The MD5 is the same: 711c4475bfedfcf0e2bd8a3dff7c9656.
    Is the purchased version is correct? How to look like “free lifetime updates”? If it’s the same version.

    [@G] I think they mean restore the data on a corrupt drive.

    [@CB] You don’t need to keep the program on your computer after burning it, unless you want the ability to reburn.

    [@Marcus] Thanks for the feedback! You can try contacting Tenorshare to report any bugs you encounter, to see if they can address them.

    [@Charles S.] Well now you have it :-)

    [@Rich Croyle] Keep searching brah, you are very close. The first place I would suggest you search: grade school, where they teach you HOW TO READ DIRECTIONS.

    The Disk restore function is not clear…they said it’s possible to restore a corrupted hd to a previous state…what does it mean? Maybe it means that it can even fix a corrupted HD previously backed up on an external HD using this SW?

    Burned CD set ODD as priority in WIN 8.1 but laptop won’t boot off the CD. The ODD spins, but then the laptop boots from the HDD. Any suggestions?
    BTW- Once CD is burned, is there any need to keep program on computer? Doesn’t it just work off the CD from then on?

    Installed, burned on CD booted, seemed to be working but stopped when it got to a light blue screen with a few clouds in upper left corner and stalled on that screen. Burned again on DVD and same thing happened stalled again on that blue screen. Tried on two machines same thing.

    I actually bought this the last time you ran it. While IMO it doesn’t completely live up to all of the promises made on the Tenorshare website, it is a nice tool(s) for the casual technician’s PC-repair toolbox.
    My advice is Get it. Even if you already have some similar set of utilities, you never know, one day this just might save your bacon (Mmm… Bacon). Thanks SoS and Tenorshare.

    [@Martin] Oh, I see what you mean. You will see the five menus at the top once you burn to CD/DVD/USB and run the program from there. The program inside Windows is simply for creating that CD/DVD/USB — you can’t fix any boot issues from inside Windows. hope that helps
