  • Bootable CD/DVD/BD ISO – file named KillDisk.iso. Burn this file to blank CD/DVD/BD disc using any burning software to have bootable Linux (Console) media launching KillDisk at start.
  • USB Boot Disk Creator — files named ISOtoUSB.exe (Windows executable) and ISOtoUSB (Linux executable). Run this utility to prepare bootable USB disk using supplied bootable ISO image file.
