(Available on Restorer Ultimate PRO Network only)

Restorer Ultimate Remote Emergency Engine is a tool that allows you to start a network computer that cannot start the normal way due to operating system failure. It provides the same access to the remote computer's hard drives as Remote Engine does and recover data stored on those hard drives. Then restored data can be transferred to a working computer via the network.

It works very simple: Just start the computer with the Restorer Ultimate Remote Emergency Engine startup disk and, if necessary, manually configure a network interface for Restorer Ultimate Remote Emergency Engine. When started, the computer and its hard drives can be accessed by Restorer Ultimate installed on another computer on the network.

We recommended that you print out this help page and have the hardcopy on hand while you are performing this action.

Before you start the computer you should be aware that your network has a DHCP server or you know the computer's IP address and network mask.

If there is a non-IDE disk controller in your system, or you plan to use network disks or external hardware devices, first check the Hardware Compatibility List.

If you plan to use any external device, turn it on before starting the system.

If the motherboard in your computer supports the Serial ATA (SATA) devices, but IDE disks are also present, only the SATA devices should be set to the Enhanced Mode in BIOS.

To start the computer with the Restorer Ultimate Remote Emergency Engine startup disks

1Make sure that the first startup device in the system BIOS is the device from which you plan to start your computer

Refer to your system documentation for details.

2Insert the Restorer Ultimate Remote Emergency Engine startup disk and start your computer
