Download key generator for Bootable Utilities Image 2.3.0


Many operations require you to "unmount" your hard drive or partition such as: Fixing, Optimizing, Defragmenting, Partitioning, Cloning and Data Recovery. There are many great tools to do these functions, but to use them you either need a second operating system installed or a bunch of bootable discs. To make your life easier I have compiled a bootable image which contains as many of these tools as possible. This image can be burnt to a DVD or cloned to a iPod/flash USB stick/hard drive/partition; the resulting product will then be bootable.

Branches: The latest bootable image Apple released to developers doesn't seem to boot their old machines anymore. Because of that I'm now making two different branches of BUI. One for old macs(2.2.x) and one for new(2.3.x)+. I've made a chart to help you find the image(s) that's right for you: 'Old macs' are ones with the PowerPC(PPC) architecture.

The 'Lite' version only has: Carbon Copy Cloner, CopyCatX, Data Rescue, Disk Utility, DiskWarrior, DriveGenius, FileSalvage, Firmware Password Utility, iDefrag, iPartition, MemTest, TechTool Pro and the Terminal.
