I run a PC repair service out of my home called Reset Computers. As a seasoned PC Technician (A+ Certified by
) in the field for 16 years, I could never find a software toolbox that could fit my personal needs…. Until I found
, which allowed me to customize my own. That got me making multiboot USB sticks, and all was great. However, some older hardware (and picky computers) wouldn’t boot from them, rendering them useless. Even the F-key boot menu wouldn’t work. Sometimes the BIOS just doesn’t support bootable USB sticks for whatever reason, even when set to Legacy Boot in the BIOS settings. So I made a bootable DVD variety, for those finicky computers that refuse to (or can’t) boot from USB. So I created a bootable ISO called MediCat DVD in early 2012. I kept working on it and kept it updated whenever I needed to, but never thought about releasing it. The first public release wasn’t until February 2nd, 2014. I had a stable home and job so I figured, ‘why not?’. Now the project has outgrown DVD-R media, and is known as MediCat USB.
The Project Objective:
My overall goal of this project is to continue where Hiren’s Boot CD/DVD left off in 2012; Provide a simplified menu system that’s completely overloaded with useful PC tools, be easy to navigate, and remain aesthetically pleasing to technicians. I wanted something elegant, but not too distracting. I didn’t want it to come across as too technical-looking, or confusing. So I did what I could to spruce things up. MediCat USB is made with modern 64-bit computers in mind.

Please Follow these steps to help you make a bootable USB stick successfully:
First thing to do is disable any “Real-Time Scanning” in your antivirus apps, including Windows Defender!!!
(Otherwise you will have apps get deleted from your USB drive during creation, and things won’t work properly.)

Can I run the PortableApps on my current PC without booting up MediCat?”
Yes, just mount the MediCat USB, and open Start.exe to launch the platform. These are the same exact apps that get loaded within Mini Windows 10. So if you update them, they will show up updated in Mini Windows 10 as well.
“How do I make this for a 32GB USB stick?”
-Install Ventoy to the drive.
-Open MediCat’s first zip.001 file with 7-zip.
-Extract the files and folders to the root of the USB drive.
“Can I add or swap out the PortableApps with different ones?”
Absolutely, I encourage it! Please feel free to modify MediCat to YOUR individual needs!
“Can I install Mini Windows 10 as my main OS?”
No, it doesn’t work like that. It’s a WinPE image (Windows Pre-install Environment) that runs in memory. It’s primary use is to troubleshoot a troublesome PC.
“Is it free?”
Absolutely. I will never charge money for MediCat, or accept donations. However, feel free to share your ideas, questions, and concerns in this thread. That’s how you can give back.
“How often will this be updated?”
MediCat USB is now a rolling release, so will be regularly updated with major releases, and minor updates as needed (Typically monthly or bi-monthly). The links here will always be the latest version. The PortableApps are easily updatable by the user, once they have been ‘burned’ to USB.
“If anyone can make these bootable USB sticks, what makes yours so special?”
Nothing, really. Just simplicity, and convenience on my part. Everything is subjective to opinion of usefulness. My software suite may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if it helps you in the field, yay!
