Boot&Go! is a Bootable USB SSD hard drive. It is a preconfigured, preloaded Windows installation with everything you need ready to rock and roll. Simply boot your laptop from the USB drive (instruction are provided) plug in your supported cable and get busy finding those faults!
On boot up some additional instructions are provided to get you going with your diagnostics as quickly and as effectively as possible.
As well as the usual Diagnostics software , Boot&Go! also contains Vdash (Subscription and fees apply) , Delphi , Haynes Pro and Vol-FCR and the 2014 electronic Wiring Diagrams.
Boot&Go! works on almost any Laptop and Mac (Intel based Macs from 2015 onwards). USB 3 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 – whichever you have.
Boot&Go! will boot to be ready to run in about 1minute 15seconds on a USB 3 port or about 1min 45s on a older USB 2 laptop. Infact on a 10 year old Core i3 Dell Latitude laptop with USB 2 ports the Vida2go (Vida ready) boot time is 1min 45s, generally much faster than the laptops 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 the Car interface cable (Such as DiCE) plugs into another USB port on the laptop.
Recommend minimum specifications for the Host computer
- USB 2.0 (USB 3.0 preferred)
- Core i3 or equivalent processor (Core i5 Preferred)
- 2GB ram (4GB Ram preferred)
