    Hiren's Boot CD, Windows 8, Cannot find partition

    Hiren's Boot CD, Windows 8, Cannot find partition by number

    My Uncle using Hiren's BootCD on his Windows 8 machine.

    When I get to the DOS step of

    "Please Select Partition By Number Or..." ... Select: [1]

    I cannot "Select 1". I try to just hit enter, pressing "1" and hitting enter, pressing "[1]" and hitting enter and all it ever does it repeat the block of text:

    "Please Select Partition By Number Or..." ... Select: [1]

    What is going on? My Uncle really need to get into his computer.

    If your HD was setup using GPT style then Hiren'sBoot CD will not support. Only MBR is supported
