This Distro contains everything you need to get a maschine booted. Also tools for Win maschines like password reset. Unfortunately the grup installer did not work for me because the Acer One Switch 10 is somehow hardware blocked and only Win install is possible. I wish I had found this earlier so my dualboot systems would have worked better. What I also like is that you get an explanation for every script so you dont just push a button but learn something and get the knowledge about what you are doing. Very good tools it feels like a swiss pocket knife.

Excellent tool. I have already managed to recover Windows MBR on several occasions, I have restored Grub and I have also successfully used Check and fix filesystems. Very useful in times of need. Congratulations to the developers.
