Super Grub Disk is a bootable floppy or cdrom oriented towards system rescue, and more specifically to boot and restore of boot. This is a good tool for new Linux users. This software works with following platforms (features):
=> Restore Grub to MBR automatically
=> Restore LILO to the MBR
=> Boot Linux
=> Boot Linux directly
=> Activate Linux partition
=> Fix Windows Boot problems
=> Boot Windows
=> Boot Windows from a second hard disk
=> Boot Windows from a second partition
It can also use to activate partitions or just to hide partitions. You will find this software quite useful in following situations:
- Fix MBR – GNU/Linux is installed in your pc, you reinstall Windows, and GNU/Linux no longer boots as Grub menu no longer appears on boot. You can restore Grub on your MBR automatically. You have Windows 9x installed in a second hard disk and it does not want to boot. If you swap it from Super Grub Disk, you will be able to boot it.
- Fix corrupted MBR – You cannot boot Windows because your MBR is corrupt or Grub installation is not well done or whatever. With Super Grub Disk, you will be able to boot the partition where Windows reside.
- Other errors – No Active Partition Found message appears. With Super Grub Disk, you will be able to activate partitions.
