MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 Review
After virus attack, mistaken partitioning or other accidents, we may meet boot problems. For instance, Windows cannot boot and the message “Bootmgr is missing” pops up. At this time, how can we boot into computer to see what happens to our system or disks if there is no installation CD or DVD? Maybe, MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 can help you a lot.
Unlike other partitioning programs, Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 is capable of booting computers without Windows OS, and then shows information about all partitions and disks, like this:
It provides some functions which may help solve boot failure problems, including:
Rebuild MBR: MBR namely Master Boot Record. Once it gets damaged, our system will be unbootable. At this time, the best solution is to fix the damaged MBR, and MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 can do it without an OS. Moreover, if system crashes without exact reason, you may try rebuilding MBR to see whether this can solve the problem.
Partition Recovery: when system partition or boot partition gets lost, our system will be unbootable, too. Partition Recovery feature in Partition Wizard Bootable helps recover deleted or lost partitions without booting Windows.
Set Active: the partition which saves boot files should be set active so that MBR can locate it to boot Windows. If we set active partition incorrectly, Windows will be unbootable, and errors like “Bootmgr is missing” may emerge. At this time, we can boot computer with Partition Wizard Bootable and then set the correct partition active via the function “Set Active”.
Actually, even if Windows can boot normally, MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 is useful. As we know, most partitioning programs will ask users to restart computer especially when they are operating system partition or the partition that is being used. If power is suddenly off when partitioning operations are made in boot mode, data loss is easy to emerge. However, Partition Wizard Bootable makes it possible to extend, shrink, move, or clone system partition without us booting computer.
Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 includes 5 editions, namely free, professional, server, enterprise, and technician, but the free edition is free for Windows home users only. That is to say server users and technicians should pay for corresponding service. Different editions have different features, and we can get detailed information from Compare Main Features (http://www.partitionwizard.com/comparison.html).
Nevertheless, MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable 9.0 cannot be used directly, and we have to do some preparations. The free edition is just an iso file, so we need to download and burn it to CD or DVD. As to other editions, we need to burn it to CD, DVD, or USB flash drive via the provided tool Bootable Media Builder.
