12 The current bootable version of BurnInTest uses a Linux x86 environment (Porteus 3) and has the same capabilities as the normal Linux x86 version. This version is only available by purchasing the PassMark Software PC Test Kit or the Bootable USB Flash Drive.

When BurnInTest is used in a self boot configuration with Microsoft WinPE, some tests are not available by default as some device drivers are not installed. BurnInTest Bootable Windows is only available by:

1. Purchasing the PassMark Software PC Test Kit which was using the bootable UFD version 3 and older.

2. Purchasing BurnInTest Windows and following our documentation on using BurnInTest with no Operating System installed.

3. Purchasing BurnInTest Windows and using our PassMark WinPE Builder.
