I used to use BartPE a long time ago, but UBCD4Win feels better in my opinion.
UBCD4Win – How I Use Ultimate Boot CD For Windows
I use UBCD4Win for 2 main reasons:
- Remote Registry
- File access on client’s hard drive (recovery)
- Reset (some people call it hack) Windows Administrator password if a client can’t remember what it was set to
- Scan an offline hard drive for malware and virus’
- Access the installed hard drive to copy/edit files, and much more.
