Super Grub Disk

Super Grub Disk is a bootable floppy or CDROM that is oriented towards system rescue, specifically for repairing the booting process. Super Grub Disk is simply a Grub Disk with a lot of useful menus. It can activate partitions, boot partitions, boot MBRs, boot your former OS (Linux or another one) by loading menu.lst from your hard disk, automatically restore Grub on your MBR, swap hard disks in the BIOS, and boot from any available disk device. It has multi-language support, and allows you to change the keyboard layout of your shell.

Happy April Fools Day SGD 0.9800 02 Apr 2012 14:17

SGD 0.9800 release was an Aprils Fools Day' joke. The disk (which it was actually a functional Super Grub2 Disk) made the user think that it was accepting to delete all the folders on their disks. Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/lost+found ... Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/lost+found ...... Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/lost+found ......... Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/lost+found ......... Completed! Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/var ... Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/var ...... Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/var ......... Deleting (hd1,msdos1)/var ......... Completed! As I explain in Super Grub Disk is no longer developed and you should think on switching to Super Grub2 Disk or Rescatux. Super Grub Disk 0.9799 is the right release to choose if you want to test Super Grub Disk instead of Super Grub2 Disk. Well... Sorry if I made you suffer a bit with this joke ;).
