This is on my Win 7 Pro X64 system. It will be the same for all 64bit versions. You should be able to find it on your hard drive in that location also. You can get to it from the Recovery Console I believe.
If not, you can create a bootable Live Linux CD. Download the bootable Puppy Linux iso image. Get the latest version available, currently slacko-5.3.3-4g-SCSI.iso
. If you don't have a burning program that will burn .iso files get burncdcc
, a small FAST no frills iso burning program or ImgBurn
, another small, fast and simple burner.
NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you.
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the .iso file you want to burn on cd/dvd ......in this case its puppy linux
3. Select the .iso file
4. Suggestion.... Check the option "Fix close"
5. Click on "Start"
Make sure in the BIOS Setup, the CD/DVD drive is the first boot device. Put the Puppy Linux CD in the drive, then reboot your computer. Puppy will boot and run totally in ram.Edit: Here is a good write up on using Puppy Linux
