I have been using Hiren Boot CD V15.2 since December 2012 without problems on many Desktop/laptop computers.
Recently, using the same CD on several machines with different CD drives, I get the following problem:
- Boot from CD works OK - no problems
- Selecting "Mini Windows XP" - no problems
- When selecting "Dos Programs" I get: "Error 13: invalid or unsupported executable format"
The Hiren CD has not been altered in any way.
The BIOS on any machine that I try has NOT been updated or altered in any way.
I have copied the "Hiren's.BootCD.15.2.iso" onto a bootable USB key using Vumi-Boot (v 188.8.131.52) then booted from the USB and using the option to load Hiren 15.2 iso, booted Hiren and then sucessfully started "Dos Programs".
I can't understand why this problem has suddenly occured and why it is only on trying to load the Dos programs but gives no problems when the CD is booted.
Any help is gratly appreciated.
