BootZilla v6 Beta 7

If you head on over to the Downloads page, you’ll find the current beta of BootZilla v6. In this release, a lot of the bugs in past releases have been fixed. The current plan is to finish up the unzip code, polish the pstart files off, and ship a final release by the end of this month.

An ISO release will follow when the final build is complete. The ISO will be based on PartedMagic’s linux distro, which includes such tools as Memtest86+, NTPASSWD (nt password reset tool). This complements BootZilla’s toolset perfectly, as it fills in the holes left over in the v6 release.

Check out the download page now for instructions on how to use the latest beta release. Let me know what’s broken, what doesn’t work, and whatever else you can find.

Minor Site Changes & Development blog

Since I’m working on getting version 6 finalized, I figured now would be a good time to change the site around a bit, add a donation link back in, and try to make the site a bit easier to use. I’ve added the official BootZilla Facebook page to the sidebar (click the small FB button), to help spread the word.

A more formal beta release is scheduled for release within the next week or so. This will include most of what’s missing from Beta 5, as well as removal of the code in BZUpdate that tried to detect administrator user elevation (which fails, I might add, on all OS’s that offer UAC). This version has also been tested on all versions of Windows from 2000 through 8 (x86/x64), with no additional libraries needed (beta 5′s wget is missing the openssl libraries, so it doesn’t work unless you google a replacement - this will be fixed in the next release).
