Why do so many softwares seem to be missing?2022-05-30T14:32:39+00:00

If you have created the DVD / USB drive with Ventoy, Yumi or similar software, this problem may happen. The said software is not fully suitable with the latest version of Hiren’s BootCD PE.

Firstly, you can try updating the software you are using for burning the ISO. If this doesn’t work, you can use our ISO2USB.exe tool or you can follow “How can I manually partition / format my USB Flash drive?” steps.

Is Windows PE legal to use?2018-06-19T08:11:52+00:00

“Windows PE is not a general-purpose operating system. It may not be used for any purpose other than deployment and recovery. It should not be used as a thin client or an embedded operating system. There are other Microsoft products, such as Windows Embedded CE, which may be used for these purposes.

To prevent its use as a production operating system, Windows PE automatically stops running the shell and restarts after 72 hours of continuous use. This period is not configurable.”


Windows PE does not include any Windows license keys. Also Hiren’s BootCD PE does not violate Windows PE purposes and it does not change “72 hours of continuous use” limitation. So using Windows PE in Hiren’s BootCD PE is legal in the terms of Microsoft’s usage purposes.

There is no cracked or pirated software in the ISO.
