This tool is great but, it would just be another boot disc for your stack if it weren't for the people behind it. I am by no means a computer techy but am willing to get my hands dirty (read, search and ask questions). I use laptops in my business and like a lot of folks don’t backup as I should. When my Sony crashed hard, “KSOD” then “BSOD”, I thought the HDD had died a slow death but was able to see the files were still accessible from another boot disc. Like everyone I’ve been hesitant to purchase and D/L’s tools from the net. After a little reading at the Neosmart forums it seemed this was more than a “buy this and good luck to ya” site. I was right.
The EasyRE works just as good as they say it does. Most computer issues I’ve had have been more than just one issue including the most recent although I’ve read that EasyRE has restored some in one boot. The Mods aren’t afraid to tell you that part of your problem is above their scope at EasyRE. I appreciated that. But they didn’t stop there. I was always pointed in the right direction every time I sent an email if the next step was beyond their scope. Over 30 emails were exchanged and some of those return emails minutes apart. I would press send and go back to reading. On many occasions it seemed it was just seconds later my phone was alerting me of a return email.
Again, if you have boot/registry/start-up issues like I did (on my Sony with no OEM disc’s) it not the end. For less than the cost of five gallons of gas or a case of beer, you can be well on your way back to using your machine in a non destructive way. Not one file lost here!
I don't know where I would post a review, but your Windows 8 Recovery Disc sure worked for me. I was installing Windows 8 on a brand-new machine. It was a corporate laptop and I didn't want any of their stuff on this test machine. I wiped the hard drive and installed Windows 8 Pro, 32-bit. I could tell that the install copied the files to the disk, but the computer just wouldn't boot. The Windows 8 setup had completed, and it wanted to boot off the disk, but it wouldn't boot. It kept running in a cycle and asking me if I wanted to boot from the CD-ROM.
I tried numerous repair CD's from other copies of Windows 8 that I had up and running. Nothing worked. I did a search on the Internet for how to get a hard drive to boot and ran across your website. I downloaded the image, burned a CD and booted with it. I selected Automatic Repair and rebooted. The Windows logo finally came up and my Windows 8 setup finally resumed and ran to completion.
This disc is going to be very useful to me in the future, next time I have problems. I also have XP running on a laptop, and Windows 7 running on a couple of desktops. I will probably be purchasing additional CD's for these OS's in the future. This was the best $20 I ever spent.
Thank you for providing this great product. You read so much about computer repair tools that don't really work. This one really worked.
You would have had a huge laugh if you saw the extended happy-dance i broke into when your EasyRE recovery software brought my vista back to lift after what seemed to be a boot problem brought on by me powering up the vaio with no battery installed, just external power. I ran your software and to my total delight the system booted, thanks for that and the software which looks like it could offer many capabilities, but first i have to determine what happened next and how to get that happy-dance going again. This is an amazing;y powerful tool that puts to shame the people behind the vulnerability and absence of disk recovery methods. Bill's nobal deeds will never make up for crippling compter users and making them dependent and powerless. Thanks so much for your help. Can you help me further and answer some questions about certain capabilities such as network setup which is password protected, and running vista programs in your environment?
Much appreciated and i will spread the word about this amazing recovery/xtrnl-os(?) tool.. now can i advertise your products.
I had compressed my C drive to save space, and only afterwards realised my folly, when my laptop wouldn't boot. It kept going through a repair loop and restarting, but always ending with a black screen. I asked my work's IT expert, who laughed and suggested I would probably lose everything.
Looking on a variety of forums, I tried several approaches, none of which worked. I tried a W7 repair disc, but the laptop wouldn't recognise it. I downloaded a windows 7 system disc, which went so far and then stopped. I was almost at the point of giving up, and trying my system recovery disc, which would scrub all my files, when I saw a review of Easy RE. Not a lot to lose, I paid my £12 and downloaded it, burnt it onto a DVD, and popped it in my dead laptop. Less than 5 minutes later, the message told me to take out the DVD and restart my computer.
Pure dead brilliant, my laptop works fine. I can't thank you guys enough. I'll keep ERE handy and definitely recommend it to anybody as the first tool to use.

guys, I can't thank you enough. I tried now for approx. 2 weeks to clone my hdd to a newer ssd (windows xp).
After cloning with clonezilla I always got a the boot error "A disk read error occurred".
Only today, after several tries ... including flashing the bios, modifying the original disk (s.t. it includes all ssd drivers, updatess, ...), playing w/ bios boot options, playing around w/ the ssd disk jumpers - it is a PATA ssd - which is kind of rare - , reinstalling/rescue-install windows xp from the windows xp recovery cd, fixmbr, fixboot etc.... I just wanted to give this ssd cloning a last try and purchased the "EasyRE for Windows XP.iso" .... Well, what should I say it worked after 2 minutes, rebooted and windows xp booted perfectly w/o any error!!!
I don't know what magic this iso did, but know everything works again... Maybe you can explain what the problem might have been... but anyway I'm very lucky that it worked out that easily and flawless.
Thanks again guys...
I am a techie geek myself, but a laptop I was repairing,Blue Screen of Death (BSD), and it appeared total, erased , WinVista, but found these great people and Software program that said it will do the job, and for such a reasonable price, I decided to got for it.Within purchase , download, burn ISO, boot up on ISO disc , within 7 mins repaired it, and with a reboot a few mins more, WOW, it up and running in superb condition. So emailed Mark a thank you, and asked,but would a WinXp home edition with,NDDLR missing on Black Screen, also be repaired , ((Microsoft under my contract with them Could not,Oooops))
Mark said yes, so downloaded the WinXP repair disc, and same again, total repair, up and running about 11 mins in total.
So many thanks again Mark. wish all people were as good and honest as yourself, and your company.
I thought I write a brief review on this since I was skeptical at first but it fixed my issues and I had to do it justice.
My computer was hit with a MBR issue after using a cleanup program which messed it up.
- 0x00000f BCD error (black Screen)
- Windows recovery failed to work (incompatible version ?!?)
- Diskpart could not set the drive to active in command prompt
- BCD Rebuild failed to work as drive was locked out
I was pretty much out of options and I came across this software, so I thought I try it out since the last option was re install which I would hate.
And truly enough 10 mins of running the software the automatic repair fixed whatever issue and the computer booted as per normal.
So if your at your wits end, give this a shot. It worked for me and I hope it will for you.
I have a PC that was running Windows Vista Ultimate and it suddenly lost its sound. After trying several different fixes that did not work I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate.
The upgrade went on for several hours with no problems, even doing a couple of reboots during the process. However upon finishing the install and a finale reboot to go into Windows 7 nothing happened.
I got just a black screen with a blinking cursor. After a week of trying different things to fix the problem I came across EasyRE. Needless to say after running the automated recovery my machine now boot into Windows 7 Ultimate with no problems. This took about 15 minutes with EasyRE, and to think I could have saved a week and many grey hairs if only I had known about it earlier.
I just purchased and used the windows 7 repair download. I was at a point I couldn't get past the black boot up screen. I only had two options, run windows normally or start up repair. Neither option worked for me. I tried system restore, image restore, emergency back up from Dell, and every other option I could find, all taking me back to same screen. When I came across this "repair" I was quite skeptical. I am a novice at computer repair but am good at researching and following directions. I downloaded the repair and followed the simple directions emailed to me, which also included a link to install a burner to complete the download to a readable disc. In literally less than 30 minutes I was up and running again. The instructions were very clear and easy. I am a happy camper.
Broke off my engagement with Microsoft years ago and gladly forgot the hairball of code and difficulty finding answers. I should have told my friend to take his polluted Windows 7 laptop down the hall, but didn't.
The viruses were so pervasive that repair attempts turned into tragedy, leaving no alternative but to slave the drive, archive the files and factory reset.
The factory reset brought on an automated update that lasted more than 8 hours (really?) and ultimately choked. The restart left the computer completely unresponsive, even to the F8 on boot up for the recovery partition.
Thanks to the $20 I spent here, this #($*%-box is back up and going through the initial configuration process.
Money well spent. Highly recommended.
