Looking for free bootable partiton tool.

Recommended Posts

I need a USB bootable partition management tool that has an option to set a primary partition active. It needs to work at boot up as the machine won't boot, but I know why it won't boot.

So what is the best free bootable USB partition tool or how do I create one for free please?

After some searching I managed to figure it out:

I downloaded Rufus ISO to USB burner and downloaded GParted. Burned GParted to the USB using Rufus. I rebooted the maching and now was able to edit my partition as intended.

Use a GParted Live CD or USB to make a Linux or Windows drive Active

How to use the free GParted CD to mark a Linux or Windows Primary partition Active

Input 02 for English and press enter.

Next input 0 and press enter to load GParted.

    • Right-click the Primary partition you wish to make Active
      and select Manage Flags.
    • In Manage Flags on ..., tick (to enable) the boot check box to make the partition Active.
    • Click Close and exit the partition utility.
  1. Restart your computer.

Gparted is a good tool to have.

You wrote up how to use it real nicely.
