The Hirens Boot CD is the ultimate in technicians tools. We’ve provided a link for version 13 here which isn’t the latest version but is really all you need to carry out any of the tasks that we teach you on this website. This is the version that we have used but of course feel free to download the latest version yourself from the official Hirens website.
