SARDU does include a few utilities, but it is primarily a tool for managing any software in ISO format that you have downloaded.
Has multilanguage support. At startup it checks the system language, and if it is supported by SARDU, that language is automatically selected. If a supported language is not found, SARDU defaults to English. The developer is willing to add support for further languages.

Multiboot SARDU

SARDU's multiboot menu is divided into five categories:

Other Software manageable

The user must download all the CD - DVD ISO images that he wants to integrate in the SARDU DVD ISO using the integrated download manager.
Downloaded ISO images have to be placed inside the "ISO" folder (customizable selecting the "ISO icon" at the top of the GUI).

All software has their checkboxes and their customization (ISO folder, name of software..). SARDU manages only these programs.

If there is a red icon the ISO of that software was not found. Pressing an application's icon (down arow) causes SARDU to download the bootable ISO from the manufacturer's website. Once downloaded, it is made ready for use by checking the checkbox. Downloads can be done manually.

 


Multiboot with Multiple Antivirus Rescue Disk, Collections of Utilities, Linux Live, Windows installer, PE...

Default media of SARDU, have the submenu 'Menu Tools'. In this section we have these freeware utilities:

  • Boot Manager as SuperGrubDisk 1 & 2 and PLoP.
  • Memtest Software for testing the RAM memory for errors and failures.
  • Hardware Detection Tool (HDT) for displaying low level information for any x86 compatible system.
  • is a disk recovery program designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again. These issues can be caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a partition table).
  • PhotoRec is a file data recovery program, designed to recover lost files. This includes video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or even reformatted.
  • LiloPwd for dumping the LILO map file where there are saved passwords in clear text.

SARDU builds a multiboot menu disk with multiple bootable programs, all in one single medium.
You can have more than 100 programs/ISOs on a single multiboot disk or multiboot USB stick. Everything you need to remove viruses, fix problems, test hardware, install an operating system ... all on hand even without DVD reader.

Until now, only the geeks, after hours and hours of work, have built similar disks.

Now, with SARDU multiboot creator, this is available for all, without any prior knowledge, after a few clicks.

SARDU is the best multiboot creator, support EFI and Legacy boot and is very easy to use.

With a few clicks the media is ready. If you want to make a multiboot USB you have to press the 'Search USB' button. The software will then look for all devices with FAT32 and NTFS (can be enabled). The device can be chosen from the combo box. In the tab `Report` you can find details about the selected USB: Type (Removable or Hard Disk), Serial, Label, Space used and free.
Pressing the button with the 'USB icon' causes SARDU to extract the needed files from one ISO at a time. After a careful examination it builds the menu and makes a multiboot USB device.

In newer and faster computer the user can set the direct extraction, saving time bypassing the extraction in the temporary folder

If you want to make a multiboot CD or DVD you have to press the button with `disk`. SARDU then extracts the needed files one ISO at a time and, after a careful examination, builds the menu and makes a multibootable ISO. The ISO must then be burned to disk using your own burning software or the burn option of SARDU.

For the multiboot utility, SARDU uses Syslinux/Isolinux and Grub4DOS. The determination of which to use is done automatically, with no user input necessary.

Build customized version with your ISOs using add extra options

Many users requested that we add the ability to include stand-alone software or ISO not directly supported/mentioned in the SARDU interface.
The user can make this using extra options..
