UEFI tool disk like Hiren's


I need a "tool disk" witch looks like Hiren or F4UBCD or PE to make some work on computers supporting only UEFI. I will write that to a USB stick from Rufus.

Any clue? I keep googling and found nothing :(

Thank you in advance!

I am sorry I used this as an example.

I am looking to buy a solution that can help me do my IT job with UEFI only systems such as Microsoft Surface.

That's fine. You have clarified and let's see what other say.

I keep discrete tools on my consulting laptop instead of a boot disk.  I use Lenovo machines and they have a number of bootable USB tools for Windows 8 / 8.1

I may be wrong but I thought that Hiren's and F4 are no longer illegal? They took the step a few years back of removing the illegal software and everything on them is freeware or licensed under Gnu GPL

You can use Easy2Boot http://www.easy2boot.com/ to put all your iso files on a single USB key and which supports UEFI boot.

I am reding on Sardu's website, thus, tried to run it, says it might go corrupt. Doesn't start good to me. Nothing as a doc to explain how it works quickly. Not here to read (lol) just need to freakin erase the CSC folder from a tablet Surface with Win8.1 for a customer witch is due for tomorrow. Jeez, hope to find out, quick! As I promised :)

for making a bootable usb stick, i use YUMI : http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/
you can add very easily bootable iso's in the grub section

To reset CSC you can just run this command from an elevated command prompt:

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\CSC\Parameters /v FormatDatabase /t REG_DWORD /d 1

Reboot and the CSC database should reinitialise
