The "Hiren Boot CD" 15.2 live CD is mainly used for its mini Windows XP from which you can launch many programs for Windows.
However, Hiren Boot CD also contains many programs that you can run directly from MS-Dos.
These programs are therefore in command line, but some of them still have a graphical interface (based on characters, such as lines, slashes, ...).
To access it, change your computer's boot order to boot first from your CD/DVD drive, then select "Dos Programs".
In this "Dos Programs" section, you will find several types of programs :
In the "Partition Tools" section, you will find many partition management utilities, such as :

One of the partition management tools known on Linux is GParted.
Select "GParted Partition Editor" and press Enter.
Then, leave the "Start ..." option selected and press Enter again.
Then, you will see this displayed while loading the "Parted Magic" live CD integrated into the Hiren Boot CD.
As you can see, Parted Magic is a Linux based live CD.
On the desktop, you will find a "Partition Editor" shortcut which corresponds to GParted.
To make your life easier, we recommend that you first run the "Keyboard Layout" program to change the layout to be used for your keyboard.
Indeed, by default, PartedMagic uses a "US" keyboard (English - QWERTY).
From the list that appears, select the desired keyboard.
In our case "fr: azerty".
Then, for the "French (Belgium)" keyboard, choose "be" from the list.
For the "French (France) keyboard, choose" fr "in the list.
At this step, select "none" and click OK.
Validate the change of keyboard by clicking on Yes.
Now, you can launch the "GParted" partition management tool by launching the "Partition Editor" program.
The "GParted" program is displayed.
Note that the partitions are displayed with names such as "/dev/sda1", since GParted runs on Linux and not on Windows.
By clicking on the icon at the bottom left (like opening the start menu in Windows), you will find a menu with many utilities that also work on Linux.
Among the available utilities, you will find :
To quit this live CD, click on Logout.
