How to create HDD/SSD BOOT hidden partition with NHV-BOOT

In the previous article, I shared with you how to create a USB BOOT with NHV-BOOT, with that method, you can easily create a great rescue USB.

However, with that approach, it will be more suitable for USB, and if you want to create a HDD BOOT or SSD BOOT, it does not seem reasonable.

Simply because for HDD or SSD or USB with large capacity, in addition to creating a rescue BOOT, we also use it to save data.

It doesn’t seem very good to confuse the data with the rescue boot files, it can still be used, but if you accidentally delete a certain boot file, it won’t be able to rescue when you need to rescue it.

That’s why in this article I will show you how to create a USB BOOT, HDD BOOT or SSD BOOT with a hidden partition, and I will use the NHV BOOT toolkit in this tutorial.

I. What should be prepared?

  1. NHV-BOOT Rescue Kit: Download Here! (In this article, I will use the NHV-BOOT-xxx-xxx-RDR.zip okay guys). After downloading, please unzip it!
  2. A USB, external HDD, or removable SSD.
  3. Download Rufus software from the homepage here ( or here )

NOTE: This method should be used for large capacity USB drives, such as USB 16GB or more, or HDD, SSD ..

II. Instructions to create SSD BOOT with NHV BOOT

You should turn off your anti-virus software before doing this, because it is possible that the anti-virus software will mistakenly recognize some software as viruses.

Way #1. Create HHD or SSD BOOT with rescue file *.RDR

+ Step 1: You open the Partition Wizard software => then divide a new partition (minimum 3GB) Unallocated).

And you just let it be Unallocated okay, that is not formatted, guys!
