  • Announcing “BootAble” – GRC's New Boot-Testing Freeware
    Please see the BootAble page at GRC for the whole story.
  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

SR 6.1 development updates are NOT posted here in the public forums.

You would need to go to the SpinRite Development NewsGroup for that. :)

@vajiggle You will probably need to wait another couple of months before the final SpinRite 6.1 debuts. At the time that it does, there should be a big splash on the GRC site, as well as here and presumably on the SN podcast. It will be a free update for existing users... you will need to have your code from your original purchase to get the update, so search your emails or whatnot to make sure you have that handy. (I believe there is a [manual] process on the GRC website you can invoke if you can't find it otherwise.)
