ARCDC GUI as shown on Windows 7

Automated Recovery CD Creator (ARCDC) is a tool designed to create your own Recovery Console CD using the Microsoft Bootdisks. Normally the process is to download a Microsoft Bootdisk, extract it to a folder, create the boot loader and lastly add some extra files. Now to make Tech Life easier, ARCDC does this whole process for you!

ARCDC is pretty straight forward. You run the program, follow the dialogs and you’ll have your CD in no time. Please keep in mind that when you’re asked to select an Operating System, choose the operating system that you are going to use the Recovery Console on, or you might run into some errors. ARCDC also gives you the ability to add custom files in case some much needed windows file died, like the ‘userinit.exe’ which causes you to log out straight after logging in.

ARCDC is compatible with Windows XP and above. It is not supported on anything lower than Windows XP.
