What are people saying about Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius

MBe Is this the same licence as sold on your Homepage for 3 PCs and free lifetime updates?

John Gallagher I downloaded the trial version of Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius v3.0.0.1 and I installed it & I tried it & I successfully burned the boot DVD, so I purchased the deal and downloaded from the link sent to me via email. The file was named windowsbootgenius244.exe !!??? That seemed to indicate I wasn't getting what I paid for, v3.0.0.1. After I installed the licensed version, I burned onto a DVD and checked all the Boot DVD file versions which all showed modified dates earlier than 2013!!! then I checked the installed program folder and again everything pre-dated 2013. Then I opened the iso file in the installed program folder and all the files pre-dated 2013 again. finally I checked the version of the installed executable "Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius.exe" and under properties details the info was: version, product version 2.0, date modified 12/10/2012. I went back and re-installed the trial version, and found that on the iso file, the file named windows.wim date stamp is 2014-08-04 and on the licensed version the date stamp is 2012-12-10, so it looks like a very old version is being delivered from the link for the purchased version. Can you explain this discrepancy between what you advertised and what you delivered?

Tomas Barth I have a computer with a black screen and impossible to start after a registry clean up. Can this software solve that problem for me? I dont understand how it is supposed to be used. Can I install it on another computer and create a startup CD that I can use on my "dead" computer? Or does it require that the software is installed on the computer with the problem? Which is impossible, as it will not start up.
Thanks for clarifying.

Louis H @ Tomas Barth...

From the Vendor's website..

To set up the repair disk......

"This is a compulsory step before you enter WinPE. This step is operated on another workable computer."

Step 1: Insert a CD/DVD disk into the CD-ROM drive or connect USB Flash Drive into a USB port on computer.

Step 2: This software will locate the ISO file and check your CD/DVD-Writer or USB automatically. If the burning software can't find them, please specify them manually.

Step 3: Click "Burn" to start burning.

Step 4: Insert the newly burned bootable disk to the computer that won't boot. And set BIOS to boot computer from CD/DVD/USB.

So from this I understand that you create your repair disk on any working computer and then use it on the one that will not start. You DO have to be able to access the bios, however, in order to set it to boot from a DVD/CD or USB drive.

The Vendor's info for that is found here.....

Hope that helps.

Constantin Florea Apologies about the issue. We have already contacted the vendor to help us fix it. As soon as we get the latest unlocked installer version, we will update it into the promotion setup and then we will resend the receipt emails to all the purchasing customers. The receipt emails which we will resend, will contain the latest version of the application.

Louis H Thank you, Constantin.

I know I have been one, in the past, who let my temper get the best of me when there was a problem with a program offered here. What I have learned over the years is that you all ALWAYS make good on any problems that arise. (I do admit that there are still times when my temper seeks to be the voice that responds, but hopefully I am doing a better job of getting it to stop and think a bit more before speaking.) ;-)

Thanks go out to the staff at BDJ.

May 2015 be a kind and profitable year for all of you.

MBe Hello Constantin, is this right, are there no updates in the future for this licence?

Constantin Florea @M Be - I am sorry for the delay. I have contacted the vendor regarding the upgrades issue as well. I am sure the vendor will help clear out these two issues.

For this promotion, the vendor sent us an unlocked installer so there is no need for a registration key. That is why the receipt email does not contain a registration key.
BitsDuJour Admin - Jan 4 2015 at 1:17pm Copy Link
Richard Croner Just purchased the deal, assuming this discrepancy had been fixed. But, alas, it has not. I fully expect this issue to be fixed or I will stop payment due to misrepresentation. Thank you.
Jan 4 2015 at 1:42pm Copy Link
Louis H @M Be... You are absolutely correct, and not deserving of IT User's ineffective use of humor to minimize your request for clarification.

There are indeed two BIG discrepancies here. Ones which need clarification from the vendor.

Is this actually a SE version of the program. (Which would not be all that bad, from my point of view, as it is a very nice discount from the current price and discount on the vendor's site. Of course it could end up being one of those times where the original price is inflated and the "discount" ends up being an ongoing "extended" discount.)

Nonetheless, on the Vendor's site you are getting a program that can be installed on 3 computers and has Lifetime "updates." Some here know how important that term can be when it comes to future "upgrades." Some vendors do not use the terms interchangeable.

What you end up with sometimes is a "lifetime" update for the program version you purchase, which of course means nothing once the next major version comes out. So it IS very important to get it clear as to what the vendor actually means. And thus it holds importance for folks making the purchase here, at any price, as to what they are exactly purchasing.

It is not simply the ancient past where there have been major discrepancies between the ad copy here at BDJ and what the actual vendor was offering. Anger need not be aimed at BDJ, however, as I have come to understand they are simply posting what the vendor provided them with.

Since one who purchases this, or any other, program, is bound by the terms of the license, it is most appropriate to get clarification BEFORE committing to the agreement.

I have been waiting throughout the day for this clarification. I choose to not purchase this deal without that clarification. I trust the folks at BDJ to be doing all they can to get that clarification for us. The fact that this deal has been on for more than 15 hours and there has been no response from the vendor - while not "proof" of anything - is disheartening.

MBe @ Constantin Florea, you did a great work. Now I'm happy, that I have participated in this great deal. I was 95% sure, that the Fine Print was not correct, so I bought a licence without an answer to my first question.
But there are two things I like to ask.
-Where can we download in the future our free lifetime upgrades?
-Is this licence for three PCs, like the licence that Tenorshare sells on their Homepage?
And please don't misunderstand my complaint, that was not against you. It was against childishly comments.
Jan 5 2015 at 10:04am Copy Link
John Gallagher Constantin Florea, I agree with M Be, nice job! I just used the original email link and downloaded file WindowsBootGenius767.exe, and installed WBG v3.0.0.1 and burned the DVD. I am reluctant to boot into the DVD just to test it at this time, so hopefully it will work if I ever need to recover my system. Finally, if it can really save a corrupted unbootable OS - it's well worth the price paid through BDJ; hopefully I'll never have to test that theory! LOL.

I do have similar questions:

1- How do we get updates (there is no check for update option that I can find when I run the installed program)?

2 - Is it correct that all the added features such as partition management and file wiping run under the DVD boot OS only? (Since there are no menu selections beyond burn CD/DVD when running the installed program).
Jan 5 2015 at 11:50am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @M Be and @John Gallagher - I have just forwarded your questions to the vendor. I should be able to get back to you with the answers no later than tomorrow.
BitsDuJour Admin - Jan 5 2015 at 12:02pm Copy Link
G W Now the version info is now sorted, maybe they could extend or do another special release on BDJ so those that did not get it due to those issues can now get it.

Jan 5 2015 at 5:00pm Copy Link
Constantin Florea @M Be - Please notice below the answers to your two questions:

Question: Where can we download in the future our free lifetime upgrades?
Vendor's Answer: There is no auto update within software, therefore customers need to contact us and we will provide the latest full version. We recommend customers pay attention to our official website, and contact us when new version is available.

Question: Is this licence for three PCs, like the licence that Tenorshare sells on their Homepage?
Vendor's Answer: Yes, the license purchased allows to install to three computers at most.

Amit Hello,

1. I would like to ask if one has Any Data Recovery Pro (tenorshare product), then can it be integrated or combined inside the usb/cd of Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius to do data recovery too of the problematic computer.

2. And secondly I wanted to ask bitsdujour users too VERY IMPORTANTLY, is there a software that can make multiboot cd/dvd images for combining iso of 4-8 different softwares. I know of yumi like utilities on, but they all make multiboot usbs, not multiboot cd/dvds. To tell I already tried magiciso for this purpose of cd/dvds, but it didn't work ok ( Magiciso was released last version in 2010 only even to tell about.
ANY HELP will be very appreciated. Thanks.

Gde Swart @Amit - What you want is SARDU ( ) It has been in development for a while and is at version 3.0 RC5. It supports creating multi-boot USB/DVD/CD and now supports EFI boot. I have nothing to do with the developer, but his work is good. The website is very informative on how to integrate the tools you want into the image and format you need and the forum is very active too if you need special help.

Bud Gallagher WARNING: I bought this program last January. The first 4 computers I tried it on saw the program fail to boot on three of the computers. The computers would freeze during the boot process. On one computer it did boot to the recovery screen. Multiple emails back & forth with tech support did not help. In the end tech support requested some additional time to fix the problem and solve the problems. It's now over six months and still have not heard anything from them. Today's offered version is the same version I bought in January.

I have also tried the product on several computers owned by other people. The product fails to work about 50% of the time.

I would recommend you pass on this product and think twice about any product that Tenorshare offers

CodeDog I've used Spotmau Powersuite for years, but as it seems it's no longer in development I've been looking for newer (and similar) alternatives.

This product looks promising, but I have a tendency to judge potential support for a product by the author's replies to questions here at BDJ. I know emergencies can come up, but with no reply here after two days I wonder.

This would be a good deal, but I'll wait to see if the author takes time to reply to these questions. Especially after being notified by Constantin...

If this program is based on that technology I'm already sold, especially for today's price. Would still like to feel better about support and ongoing development, though...

Robert Crombie (Anyone having trouble installing, should read my PS on the end of this post)

I purchased this yesterday.
The good news is - it provides a WinPE bootable CD
(To create one yourself can be a hassle, especially in XP. So having one pre-prepared for us is a good thing)
The installer basically gives you a front end for unzipping the 'Installer,,and placing it into your 'Programs' folder. If you then click the entry in your start menu, that will run a small exe -
C:\Program Files\Windows Boot Genius\Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius.exe
That is a tiny front end for burning the ISO (which is in the same folder) to a blank CD
There are also help files stored in that same location for you.
If anyone is having trouble installing the 'Installer' (perhaps because of the excessive security in Win 7, and win 8), READ MY PS.
I have not tested many of the functions, as I would first create an image of my drive, so I can revert back if necessary.
The one thing I have noticed is - I cannot get accesn to the web, nor to my network drives, when the WinPE is running.
PS Here is a guaranteed simple way to 'Install' the download that you get, and to then create the WinPE CD -
Place your downloaded exe into say c:\Temp
Use your unzipper (say the free 7-zip), to 'extract it here'
Locate this file and run it - 'Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius.exe'
That will display a small form that will offer to create the WinPE CD for you

Noggin The Nog For some reason that I have yet to learn, it appears that boot disks for fixing systems generally do not include chkdsk.exe. There is no sign of it in the screen shots for Windows Boot Genius. However, it is included in a BartPE disk, which includes the windows command line console.

Mark Bunner Purchased this on special a few days ago based on it saying it had a registry editor in it. Today, I had need to use it to fix a profile problem. Booted to it and ran the registry editor. The "registry editor" is not a full registry editor. It will not allow you to edit keys as a full registry editor does.

So, it's useless to me. It looks almost identical to Wondershare Liveboot, which suffered the same problem.

Why on earth these companies release products that are supposed to allow you to repair windows without a full registry editor is beyond me.

If it can't fully edit registries, it should not have said so in the description.

Since you burn the repair program to a CD, is it only good for the computer the disk was made on, or can it be used on multiple computers with different versions of Windows?

Ronald Jurman "And it all starts with you creating a bootable ISO image on a CD, DVD, or USB drive!"

I'm beginning to think that its capabilities are more along the lines of a backup program (but only for boot info and drivers) with some additional diagnostics, that needs to be initially used while the system is still operational (possibly unique to only that computer).

Definitely concerned about the lack of response from the developer.

It was sent and still did not work on two of the four (same computers) computers.

Computers booted until desktop cloud background appeared with live mouse but no desktop appeared.

You advertise "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC" but it didn't boot all of mine.

I still say Buyers beware

CodeDog I've always had good luck with this program. One thing to note is that "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC" can't mean exactly that, if there are hardware or other types of issues with the system that aren't drive related the program probably wouldn't work.

The program is meant to be able to boot a system with drive/OS errors, and for what it's meant to do it works great.

I was hoping this deal meant there was a newer version available, but it's the same version I already have...

Stefan Hauber What about Win10?

Just read 'After you purchase Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius, it may be used for 12 months.' In my opinion it's quite seldom, that we really run into an unbootable PC. Perhaps once a year. Bad thing, if this 12 months of usage has just been gone. What happens after these 12 months?

I have 5 computers.

Norwel Gordon Please answer the questions posted by Stefan Hauber and Joe McCormick. Both request information that should be included initially in the "Fine Print" and a prompt reply from Tenorshare might give credibility to this offer.

CthulhuSaves It *is* in the fine print:

"After you purchase Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius it may be used for 12 months and will not function after that unless you renew your subscription."

As for # of PCs, that's self-explanatory by the nature of the program, ie. there would be no effective limit in that sense, since the PC is simply used to create the boot media, which in turn can be (if all goes well) used on anything.

And to throw my opinion into the mix, yeah, a time limit shouldn't exist on something like this. It's like a car jack sitting in your trunk, it could be years before you actually need it. A major version change should be the demarcation point for repayment.

Norwel Gordon @ Cthulhu Saves I see nothing in the fine print answering Stefan's very important question "What about Win10?
Nor is the # of PCs self-explanatory For example, Will the EULA allow the purchaser to create AND use both a CD, DVD and USB booting device?

And most alarming: Why no replies to questions from the vendor?

Joe M I just checked the older comments where I asked about this 8 months ago, how many computers it can be used on. The answer I got back from Tenorshare support was 3 computers at most. I did not realize that I have already purchased this program. It was the same v3.0.0.1 back then as is offered here today.

"I see nothing in the fine print answering Stefan's very important question "What about Win10?"

I didn't comment on that because no such question was posed when I replied, nor do I see it now. He must have edited his post prior to then.

"Nor is the # of PCs self-explanatory For example, Will the EULA allow the purchaser to create AND use both a CD, DVD and USB booting device?"

Again, to my mind that is indeed still self-explanatory. Short of a (rather bizarre) notation denying said options, I would think it logical to assume the answer to be yes. In truth, I can't fathom such an odd limitation existing. It does list CD and USB as options, so DVD would be a given, as well.

William W. Geertsema Windows 7 Pro SP1 (Windows 6.7.7601).

I purchased the earlier offer of this program (same version in July 2015, and burned it to CD.
The Windows PE version on the CD is Windows 7 (6.7.7600) without SP1.

The bootable CD is quite versatile, but I have not been able to run Internet Explorer from it; I assume something (registry item, settings, files?) is lacking.

I use the command prompt a lot (being an experienced and hence old-fashioned programmer), and I would have liked to have seen a shortcut to an elevated command prompt on the GUI (together with the shortcuts to System, to Explorer, and to the (not functioning?) Internet Explorer.
To get a workable (and legible) command line:
1) Double-click the Explorer icon
2) Select c:\Windows\System32
3) Select cmd.exe, right-click it, and select "Run as administrator"
4) When the command window appears, make it legible by one of the following commands (yellow on red, or white on black):
color 4E
color 1F

Despite the Internet Explorer problem, I consider the CD (or USB stick) to be useful and worth having at hand.

J S "After you purchase Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius it may be used for 12 months and will not function after that unless you renew your subscription."

And just what is the Renewal Cost(s)?

YOU REALLY SHOULD PUBLiSH the SUBSCRiPTiON RENEWAL FEES, UP FRONT (ie Before Purchase), so that the Buyer knows ALL THE Terms & Conditions BEFORE they hand over any monies.

QUESTiON: ... So what if I purchase it and have no need to use it in that 12 months after purchase period? ARE YOU REALLY SAYiNG that basically I'm just going to throw away $10.99 USD (which is a lot more in devalued Australian Dollars) every 12 months if I have no requirement that desperately needs Windows Boot Genius

SCENARiO: 1. USER goes to boot up Windows computer but only gets a repeated B.S.o.D. 52.166 weeks (367 DAYS) after buying today's deal.
2. USER thinks hang on I'll get my Windows Boot Genius cd out to get my PC up and running again.
3. USER discovers that Windows Boot Genius WiLL NOT WORK because the license expired a day ago and will have to pay a License Renewal Subscription FEE although what that Fee is is unknown
4. USER can't get their computer to boot-up/work so the USER is unable to access the internet so that they can make the License Renewal Subscription FEE PAYMENT.

SUGGESTiON: ... If you wan't to be FAiR, how about making the T&C, 12 MONTHS access to WBG from the first time that the LiCENSED USER actually uses the WBG software?????

FiNALLY: ... If you absolutely positively stick to this subscription method, is the first and subsequent RENEWAL FEEs also DiSCOUNTED BY 80% as per the initial purchase or ???

UNTiL I know the answers to my questions/scenarios etc above I'd have to say ... Don't COME THE RAW PRAWN WiTH ME.

In mu comment of January 27, 2:25pm I mentioned that I had not been able to run Internet Explorer from the boot CD produced:
Paging back through earlier comments on this software, I just found the following remark by Robert Crombie (extracted from his extensive comment dated July 5 2015 at 10:41pm):

"The one thing I have noticed is - I cannot get access to the web, nor to my network drives, when the WinPE is running."

I surely would appreciate it -- as will probably Robert Crombie and many others -- if the developer would reply to these posts and address the problem.

Bud Gallagher Beware - I bought this product several years ago and it failed to boot 4 of the 5 working computers I owned at the time. After many emails back & forth the problems were never resolved. A year or so later, I found out they released a newer version which they sent me after I reminded them of the problems I had with a prior version. This newer version worked on 3 of the same 5 computers. After several more emails I gave up and trashed the software as it did not/would not "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC" as advertised.

Bud Gallagher Been there done that - support was unhelpful as stated above. They sent copies of other products that booted the computer which also didn't work. The most common response from tech support was we could not duplicate the problem.

You still advertise that the product will "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC". I still have 4 of the computers that were in the original test group and use them every day. I may even still have copies of all the emails with your support team. If you think the new product now works send me a licensed copy and I'll try it again and adjust my comments based on the results of the test.

Until proven otherwise, my warning to beware of this product stands as it does not "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC" in my experience of using the software.

Terry User I'm surprised to see some of the comments above. I first purchased Boot Genius a few years ago, and have never had a problem with it. In fact, it's been very helpful on a number of occasions. You just have to understand it's purpose.

When you purchase the software, you install it on a working computer. Then you use it to create a boot disk, which you store until you need it. It is not intended to boot a computer with failed hardware, but often your hard drive will become corrupted or your operating system files will do strange things and fail to load. That is when this program shines. If your computer can technically boot up, but your operating system won't load (or does strange things), this can help.

No, I don't work for the company. I just like to support a good product. And for me, this has been a great and very helpful product...
Sep 21 2017 at 7:15am Copy Link
Bud Gallagher Sorry for the delay in getting back, my expected free morning was overruled by my wife's doctor appointment I knew nothing about. If have read the above threads I had negative comments about Boot Genius. Last night Tenorshare gave me a link to a licensed copy of Boot Genius to retest the product. The 1st time I used the product it failed to boot 4 of my 5 computers. A year plus later they again offered Boot Genius here, again they offered me a new copy of the program, I took it and this time it failed to boot 3 of the same 5 computers.

Last night I downloaded the current version of Boot Genius and created a bootable CD. This AM I tested it on 6 different computers, 4 desktops and 2 laptops. The desktop computers were all assembled my me. The laptops were a Lenono Thinkpad and an Acer Aspire 5732Z.

The 2 laptops and one of the desktops booted into what I would call the Boot Genius desktop and appeared to function as expected as far as moving around the menu system, I did not test any of the features the program offers.

On 2 of the desktops the computers booted a screen that showed a light blue sky background with white clouds in the upper corner of the screen. An active mouse cursor was visible on the screen. After a long delay (60 plus seconds) the Boot Genius desktop displayed. The program then appeared to function as noted in the above notebook discussion.

The 4th desktop booted to the blue sky desktop, the mouse cursor did not display. The only thing displayed was the blue sky. After waiting over 5 minutes nothing changed. The Boot Genius desktop never appeared. I ended up having to turn off the computer.

The 4 desktops used today were also used in my prior tests of Boot Genius. The desktop that failed to boot today also failed in the prior tests.

One thing I noticed is that the boot process appears to be a lot faster and smoother in the current version than it was in prior versions.

In summary, the current version appears to boot much better and faster than the two prior versions I have tried so I will withdraw my beware warning. However, the "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC" is still not an accurate statement. I think it should be changed to "Boot Most Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC" or better still "Boot Any Unbootable Desktop or Laptop PC except one of Bud's computers"

Thank you Tenorshare for allowing me to reevaluate Boot Genius, it's a much nicer product than the one I originally tried.

Doug Atkinson I would be tempted to buy this but a 12 month "subscription" license is too limiting. This is the type of tool you don't need very often, but when you do you'll be happy to have it - until you find out your subscription expired and you have to buy it all over again. Laptops usually last several years before needing a tool like this, but it does happen (my son had a non-booting laptop issue just this past year). I understand if I don't get updates after a year, but to have a tool like this stop working after a year is not a good license model unless you're a technician who uses a tool like this every week.
