Download the following instead and follow the steps in the link to create a bootable USB rescue disk. We are going to try to use this program to get your disk ready.

Ok,
No success with making the drive, all downloaded to the laptop ok, on following the steps on screen, all I get is a widow showing three versions free, professional, server, with instructions to buy no matter what I do I can not get past this window,
Further, on reading through the onscreen script it states, "Tips: only purchased users can create bootable disk"
Directions, are
Select tool from the menus and select create winPE bootable disk. Then the buy now window comes up

As requested, the second photo is of the window that pops up every time I use the tool menu or the WinPE bootable disk icon at the top of the screen.

Please follow all the steps in link below to create the bootable Hirens USB. You don't have a USB to Sata adapter that allows you to connect your hard drive to your laptop do you?
