Windows 10 Recovery CD Free Download

Windows Flag 10With Windows 10 just around the corner, we’re mighty happy to report that our award-winning Easy Recovery Essentials for Windows is now currently available for absolutely free to all Windows 10 preview and RTM users.


Easy Recovery Essentials® for Windows, for those that haven’t tried it before, is a one-click disaster recovery CD for Windows that features 100% automated diagnostics and repair for Windows PCs. It’ll automatically go through an extensive battery of tests and solve all problems as it finds them (very quickly, too!) – all you have to do is boot from an EasyRE CD or USB stick, and select the OS you want to repair.

Easy Recovery Essentials for Windows 10 joins the rest of the EasyRE product family providing the following features:

  • EasyRE is a Windows 10 repair disc that repairs all bootmgr, bcd, and winload.exe errors.
  • EasyRE is the only repair CD to repair EFI bootloader errors and problems with bootmfw.efi, winload.efi, and more.
  • Easy Recovery Essentials automatically finds and corrects issues with the MBR, GPT, and partition records, resolving issues with the active partition, incorrectly configured partition entries, recursive partition records, overlapping partitions, and corrupted boot headers.
  • EasyRE detects and resolves dozens of boot-time blue screens of death, and prevents many other BSODs while Windows is loading and when it is running.

Aside from the award-winning and exclusive automated repair functionality, EasyRE also presents many features useful in repairing computers and fixing problems:

  • System/registry rollback and restore
  • Offline virus scanning
  • Deleted partition recovery tools
  • Modern web browser
  • Graphical partition editor

EasyRE can be made into a bootable CD or a bootable USB, and is compatible with just about every computer (32- and 64-bit) from all manufacturers, and supports Windows XP through Windows 10, in all languages and SKUs. EasyRE is also available for servers and for computer repair technicians.

While EasyRE has been fully updated and tested for compatibility with Windows 10 TP build 9926, we do not officially offer support for the Windows 10 versions of EasyRE at this time.

  1. Hi Mitch,

    I presume in your case it really is that EasyRE is outdated; Microsoft introduced quite a few changes in the anniversary edition that prevent older EasyRE’s from repairing your newer Windows 10. If you’ve recently purchased EasyRE, shoot support an email to for a free upgrade.

  2. I have an older version of Easy-Re for Win 10.
    It won’t repair my upgraded version Windows.

    Can you please send me any help for an upgrade, so I can finally fix my computer.

    Thank you, God bless, and
    Happy Holidays. Dennis.

  3. Hi,

    I have tried to create USB bootable disk of EasyRE, I paid for it, downloaded it, installed it and is starts the procedure fine asking me what version of EasyRE should I start. After I select any of them, it starts the process, but ends in 3 secs for line “MSI supports 8 lines, 64 bit…”. I am running Windows 10 in Toshiba Portege in quite new setup. I have problem of “Other User” Windows Login Problem.

  4. greetings..can someone please tell me what error 0x000034 means on win10 and how I can fix it..?
    thank you..

  5. @elisa: Error 0x000034 is ERROR_DUP_NAME

    From Microsoft:

    You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. If joining a domain, go to System in Control Panel to change the computer name and try again. If joining a workgroup, choose another workgroup name.

    It seems like an easy enough fix?

  6. Downloaded iso for W10, burned to CD. No menus like those pictured — only endless text commands and code, followed by a scrambled rater and endless disk hunting.

    Something is very wrong here.

    Can you contact me?

  7. my recovery tool was deleted i cant downgrade my windows 10 to windows 7 now

    where can i download recovery tools for free?

  8. Writing to request a copy of your Recovery CD.
    I don’t know if you are still offering it or not. All the free links point to the paid versions and If so I completely understand.
    Thank you in advance either way….It sounds like a wonderful piece of software.

  9. I burn the iso image with the windows 10 recovery tools you have but it will not boot into the usb stick i have made. And it will not boot into the cd i burned with the software either. What is the problem.

  10. From my experience, even on the paid version, I have never been able to get the USB version of this application to work. I see the same garbled output as you find. The only way I have managed to use the software is via the CD/DVD option, and then it works well. I strongly request the developer to improve the USB creation tool.

  11. Eu comprei a versão para Windows e a versão para Windows Pro. Apesar de comprar as duas nenhuma funcionou para mim. O que devo fazer?

  12. any suggestions for a acer computer with windows 10 this is already currupt after only having this computer 6 months?

  13. I find similar problem with this software. The USB option just does not work. I did manage to get the CD option to boot, and the recovery software I find does work well once you get the CD option to work but it loads very slowly. I strongly request NeoSmart to correct their USB creator software.

  14. @Jonathan: we’d be happy to, but we’ve had no verifiable such reports of the USB utility failing. “just does not work” unfortunately does not constitute a useful bug report.

  15. Dear Mahmoud. I have both the W7 and W10 Recovery options and I have never been able to get the application to run using the USB option. From what I gathered on prior communication with you support, the only application that allows the Boot files to be created correctly is your Easy USB Creator? I have tried numerous times to create a functioning USB drive, but it does not work for me. Can you perhaps help further on this? I hav only had success using the CD option.

  16. Dear Mahmoud
    I recently purchased Win 8.1 EasyRe and worked on one machine. I am thinking of purchasing EasyRe for Win 10. However, I m not sure if it will work as I get an error 0x8007045D. I have Gateway machine desktop Model ZX4655G_W which I have installed a new 2T hardrive and attempted to install fresh Win 10 .The error appears during step 2 of installing Win 10. Will EasyRe be able to correct this problem?

  17. Similar problems creating a bootable USB from the paid / commercial version from the neosmart ISO for Windows 10 Recovery. Using the same process I created a Windows 10 Installation media (so i know the USB process works, just appears to be the ISO that doesn’t support booting from USB). Who has CD/DVD these days anyway?

    Was hoping for a simple way to boot into a recovery tool. Looks like I wasted the $$ and will resort to using Linux + Windows 10 installation media.

  18. @ives:

    > Using the same process I created a Windows 10 Installation media

    That’s your mistake. It’s not the same process. The EasyRE ISO image uses a different format than the Windows setup ISO image, and we have explicit, clear directions with a tutorial video and step-by-step instructions on how to correctly create a bootable USB in our wiki at

  19. I find exactly the same problem. The USB creating process is flawed. I have followed your instructions 100% and the USB process is NOT FUNCTIONING correctly. As I mentioned previously I have tried it on the W7 and the W10 recovery software and have never got the USB process to function correctly

  20. I cloned a drive and had trouble getting it to boot because of INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE, and I had high hopes for EasyRE.

    But after using and booting to the boot menu where you select EasyRE, EasyRE VGA, or EasyRE safe mode, none of the options work.

    What ends up happening is EasyRE tries to boot, with lots of Linux-boot-looking lines flying by, then it says something along the lines of failed to start X server and restarts the laptop. The other 2 options also restart, even safe mode.

  21. i am getting blue screen errors kernel security check faliure ,can anyone assist me how to fix I am currently using win 10

  22. Good day, is this the latest version of Easy Recovery Essentials? All the help info dates back to 2014 …. I’m trying to fix my disk . My laptop a dell xps15 with Microsoft Windows 10 professional which was updated from windows 8.1 successfully and working until disk crashed. I bought your software, burned a DVD as instructed run the program and received the following:
    Checking windows file system on /dev/ada0s2 for errors and inconsistencies…. Corrupted partition detected! Attempting to repair… integrity check completed.
    Unable to mount partition for write access. Aborting! Check log for more details. Unable to proceed with the repair of this volume. PLEASE I Need some help. I’m a disabled person and would be very appreciative if one of your support tech could call me.

  23. record one hirens bot on cd . use bot from disc one time ,the fix is done .:)

  24. The Windows 7 EasyRE bootable CD doesn’t work if SP1 is installed (says not compatible) and/or installed in UEFI mode is also an issue.

    However, at the time I downloaded Windows 7 EasyRE, there was no SP1 & UEFI wasn’t being discussed widely yet, so maybe the combination of factors were why my EasyRE CD didn’t work. Probably was looking for a MBR install on a non-SP1 Windows 7.

    At any rate, I don’t blame NeoSmart, as I’ve used their EasyBCD utility on many machines when dual booting Windows with Linux, and was able to retain Windows (XP through 10) as default OS. To me, that’s worth more than an EasyRE CD, as I have Windows ISO’s for repair & Google is my right hand partner in fixing broken OS’s, regardless of reason.


  25. What a piece of @$@#%#. I bought the WIN 10 version. First of all, I couldnt make a USB bootdrive. First error was no active partition, then I tried another UXB drive and via your tool created a boot USB. However my Acer laptop wont start-up from it. The I made a boot CD with the ISO I downloaded. After a long time the ERE interface showed up. I selected the WIN10 NTFS partition and selected automated repair. I checked memory first, no errors, but after that NOTHING happened !! No warnings, errors or whatsoever. If one has serious boot errors, then at least your software should report back what the hell is going on. So frustrating !!! I want my money back or a proper resolution

  26. Hi Ben
    I am very glad others are pointing out the problem of the USB recovery drive. I have never been able to successfully create a USB recovery drive on this software on all the windows versions I have purchased.
    The process is definitely flawed.
    I will though keep on praising the software as it works for me on the CD versions, but I would far prefer to be able to use the USB option.
    I am also not very happy with the marketing approach of this company as they force one to buy a new version with every new version of Windows, including the relatively minor different versions of Windows 10.
    e.g. my w10 version that works on 1511 will not work on 1507 etc.
    I feel this is extortion!

  27. I am retracting my complaint now on the USB creation! Today I eventually got it to load correctly. And once again I will complement the developers on excellent recovery software. Please explain your policy on updates? For example I purchased the W10 version in January this year. When I tried using this version on W10 build 1703 I get a message the software is too old to repair this version. Are you prepared to update my version at no cost? Or perhaps a reduced cost?

  28. &Mahmoud Al-Qudsi I cannot create a boot usb pen dirve that works, It gives me the option into boot normal repair, VGA or Safe mode, neither of those options let me boot into the software. I can send you the log file.

  29. I downloaded the ISO for Windows 10 Home and burned it to a CD on a Windows 10 computer that is working. When I place the CD in the machine that is not working the CD runs briefly and then nothing happens. I have already gone into the BIOS and set the boot to the CD. No message, just a black screen. Help, please.

  30. I am not a technical person.
    My issue is the blue screen of death with a 0000021a error.
    I downloaded windows 10 pro on my working laptop and copied it to my USB.
    I changed the boot sequence on damaged pc to boot from USB.
    I stuck usb in damaged pc and started it.
    Numerous attempts later, I have no joy seeing the recovery solution work.
    Have I missed something.
    Do I need to unpack the downloaded recovery kit on my working PC first, before saving it to the USB.
    Please guide me.

  31. please, give me a solution for the error code


    IT HAPPENS at the boot of win 10…
    and then the SO doesn’t start.
    Is EasytRE able to fix that error ?
    I’m from Italy, excuse my poor english….

  32. Hello,

    I’d like to know if your recovery disc works for Windows 10 Home 64-bit? I just got a new computer with Win 10 last week and I’d like to download the iso file to burn to a disc. Is your recovery disk iso file for Win 10 up to date and working properly?


  33. Bootloader got corrupted (/bcd 0xc0000098 error) on 3-month old laptop. Downloaded EasyRE for Win10, burned the ISO to a USB flash drive, booted into recovery, selected ‘automatic’ repair and within 5 minutes, I was back in windows 10 … thank you!

  34. Thank you, Mahmoud Al-Qudsi, for the updated EasyRE !! Burned ISO to disk, then figured out I had to disable SECURE BOOT and then had to change UEFI to CMS, then booted and ran Automatic Repair and had my corrupted HP back up and running in no time!!

  35. I have a dell xps 13 laptop and i have managed to create a bootable USB, following these steps: and booting to the boot menu where you select EasyRE, EasyRE VGA, or EasyRE safe mode, none of the options work.

    What ends up happening is EasyRE tries to boot, with lots of Linux-boot-looking lines flying by, then it says something along the lines of failed to start X server and restarts the laptop. The other 2 options also restart, even safe mode, has anyone else got passed this and working ?

  36. Hello,
    I have paid for both Windows 8 and Windows 10 version last Year and must say I was very happy but now when I try to use them it tells me it cannot repair it with this version “any reason” and can you tell me how to fix this problem please.

  37. Burned (Windows10 Repair) ISO to disk, then disabled SECURE BOOT and then changed UEFI to CMS, then booted and ran Automatic Repair and had a corrupted Acer Aspire Desktop UEFI bootloader repaired. Excellent that this works on prebuilt W10 desktops (a real pain to sort out the UEFI bootrec manually). Cheers.

  38. Hello,

    Sorry there is an increase on ASUS A46C Laptop, regarding Boot Recovery. And also want to know. And so forth.

    That is all from me,

    Thank you for your help.

    Thank Ou!

  39. I had similar issues myself. Purchased the product for its “guaranteed fix” of the windows auto repair infinite loop. Not only did it not fix the problem it made it worse, my pc wouldn’t even get to the auto repair loop it would endlessly say it needed to restart. That being said though, customer service rep that assisted me through my ordeal was really sympathetic and genuinely helpful. I ended up having to delete my hardricd partitions and reinstall Windows, but the windows ezrecrovery I had purchased had a second function that made the whole thing worthwhile, it allowed me to backup my entire hardrive to an external before the “clean sweep”. And to clarify by this time I couldn’t access anything on my pc except for the bios. Being able to back up my entire hard drive and restore t after the reinstallation was HUGE.
