Multiboot USB and CD or DVD Creator
creates a multiboot USB drive, a multiboot DVD ISO or multiboot CD ISO (all-in-one) for free (personal and non commercial use, read the license). Hard disks (internal and external), SSD, USB flash drive and all removable memory disk and media are supported.
The multi bootable device can include comprehensive collections of antivirus rescue CD, utilities and popular Linux live distributions. Windows PE can also be included, as well as recovery disks and install media for Windows XP (Professional, Home and 64 Bit), Windows Vista, Windows Seven and Windows Eight.
The multiboot USB supports and manage USB stick, pendrive, hard disks, SSD or removable media.
All one has to do is download the desired ISOs with the integrated downloader and use SARDU to add them to the multi boot menu. After the multiboot support builded can be test with the QEMU integrated
SARDU is simply the best solution to combine all of your bootable ISOs into one with a simple menu multiboot! That in turn can be burnt to any device and make it bootable (providing that your BIOS supports it). Basically, this eliminates the need to carry around heaps of different bootable CDs.
SARDU can also be used to build one usb multiboot for install Windows XP , Windows Vista, Windows Seven and last Windows Eight, very handy for when there is no optical drive available like tablets or netbooks.
The tool is a windows software for Multiboot DVD ISO and Multiboot USB Creation that merges and turns all those bootable CDs into one media support.
The name is an abbr from "Shardana Antivirus Rescue Disk Utility".
Is all you need for troubleshooting.
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.
The user can change the language at any time using the language menu.
*personal and non commercial use, read the license.
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 own buttons and checkboxes. SARDU manages only these programs.
If a checkbox is disabled (grey) the ISO of that software was not found. Pressing an application's button 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 by disabling the function ' File -- Enable direct download'. The user can update the status of the ISO folder from File -- Refresh ISO/IMA menu (N.B.: do not change the default names of the individual ISOs because they won't be recognized by SARDU.) If a checkbox is unchecked (white) the single ISO is disabled and not-active.
Multiboot with Multiple Antivirus Rescue Disk, Collections of Utilities, Linux Live, Windows installer, PE...
- 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 multi boot menu disk with multiple bootable programs, all in one single medium.
You can have more than 60 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 multi boot creator, this is available for all, without any prior knowledge, after a few clicks.
SARDU is the best multiboot creator 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. By default the USB device combo box is disabled, and is activated only when one (or more) devices are detected. 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.
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 I add the ability to include stand-alone software. Inside the ISO folder I have included an `extra` folder where additional files can be put. You can enable this folder if it does not exist by pressing File -- Enable Extra.
The user can load an ISO not directly supported/mentioned in the SARDU interface: Menu --> Add Extra ISO (Test) or Menu --> Add Extra ISO from memory (Test).
The user can load their own customized folder and/or menu iso/syslinux and GRUB4Dos. This option adds unsupported ISOs or customized folders/menus, is for advanced users, and I don't provide customer support related to its use.
