BOOT&GO (formerly a different name) = A great solution for those folks that already own a laptop!

Boot&Go is a Bootable USB SSD hard drive. (Not a thumb drive, this is an actually high-tech external solid state drive. My European colleague wrote a great comparison for that HERE.)

Boot&Go is a preconfigured, preloaded Windows installation with everything you need ready to rock and roll. Simply boot your laptop from the USB drive (instructions provided on the front page of this very website) plug in your DiCE (or other supported cable) and get busy finding those faults!

As well as VIDA 2014D , VIDA 2015, Boot&Go also contains Vdash , Delphi 2016 , Haynes Pro, Vol-FCR, the 2014 Electronic Wiring Diagrams, as well as MS Office! (See FAQ’s for more info on all programs.)

Boot&Go works on almost any PC laptop and Mac (Macs from 2015 onwards). USB 3.0 is preferred but not required. Minimum 2GB of Ram is recommended, it can be used with any modern version of Windows . Windows 7 home, Pro, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 11 – whichever you have. (Will be bypassing the internal hard drive, so it really doesn’t matter what’s on there, it’ll boot the Win10 that’s on our drive.)

Boot&Go will boot to Vida ready to run in about 1minute 15seconds on a USB 3.0 port or about 1min 45s on a older USB 2.0 laptop. In-fact on a 10 year old Core i3 Dell Latitude laptop with USB 2.0 ports the Boot&Go (Vida ready) boot time is 1min 45s, generally much faster than the laptop’s own hard drive.

Recently a few people have shown some confusion about Boot&Go, asking if it plugs in in-between the dice and the laptop. An understandable question…and its nearly right, but no. Boot&Go plugs into a USB port on the laptop and DiCE plugs into another USB port on the laptop.
