Windows recovery tools

5 Jul 2006

Here are some useful tools for troubleshooting/recovering windows systems:

Linux tools (and religion.):

  • Knoppix is a CD bootable Linux distribution, that is The Swiss Army Chainsaw of distros – it does everything. Insert Linux and Damn Small Linux are also useful, as they fit on business card CDs
  • PNordahl has a tool for resetting forgotten Administrator passwords
  • DBAN completely solves all Windows problems, by wiping the hard disk :-) You can then install a decent Operating System like Ubuntu Linux
