Rescue CD Enhance Utilities

The list below lists all the utilities that can be included in the Rescue CD Enhance and the 911Menu module can take advantage of, follow the steps at every program to include it.

After you have created the utilities folders place them all in the rescuecd\911 folder in the Rescue CD Enhance Builder folder.
 

Note1: Of course it is very unlikely that you own all these utilities or even need to own 'em so I recommend that you include all the free utilities in addition to Norton SystemWorks Pro, PowerQuest Partition Magic, and the demo version of NTFSDOS Pro, this would give you 90% of the full power of the 911 Rescue software collection at a very reasonable price ($100 for Norton SystemWorks, $70 for Partition Magic and the rest are free).

Boot Utilities:

These utilities will be used by the main boot menu. Note that these are more advanced to create than the 911Menu.

ERD Commander 2002:

ERD Commander 2002 is supported on the Eltorito Boot Menu. Key features:

  • Boots dead systems directly from CD
  • Easy, familiar Windows-like GUI interface
  • Includes the Locksmith utility to reset lost Administrator passwords
  • Built-in network access to safely copy data to/from dead systems
  • Repair tools include Service and Driver Manager, Registry Editor, Explorer, and Command Prompt
  • Diagnostic tools include the Event Log Viewer, System Information, TCP/IP Configuration, and Logical volumes utilities
  • Compatible with Windows XP, 2000, and NT4(sp4+)*
  1. After you have installed ERD Commander 2002, start the "ERD Commander 2002 Boot CD-Rom Wizard". Follow the screens for license agreement/information, password protection, preparing files, additional drivers and additional files until you get to the screen called "Write CD-ROM Image file". Enter a filename for the ISO image, for example d:\temp\erd.iso and create the image.
  2. Extract all the files from the ISO image, using software like IsoBuster (you can use other software). Make sure you extract the files from the Joliet filesystem (not the ISO9660)! If you don't you will be missing all long filenames. You should extract all files and folders from the erd.iso file into d:\911\bcd\cds\911cd\disk_data\. So when using isobuster open the erd.iso image file and right-click on the ">>>" icon and select extract. Then browse to d:\911\bcd\cds\911cd\disk_data\ files folder. Now check if the extract went OK, there should now be a file d:\911\bcd\cds\911cd\disk_data\bootsect.bin and also d:\911\bcd\cds\911cd\disk_data\i386\setupldr.bin
  3. Remove d:\911\bcd\cds\911cd\disk_data\bootsect.bin if you want. This file is not needed for 911 Rescue CD Enhanced.
