and use Hirens boot cd as OS so that you can clone, hack the SAM file, test harddrive easy copy etc.

I understand, I work with these kind of tools myself. He wants to attach hard drives with USB adaptors, and boot from a Hiren's Boot CD to then perform computer maintenance functions such as data backup, hdd imaging, test hdds, and SAM edit (Windows password reset)

In short, yes and no, the Hiren's boot CD is compiled for to run on i386 Intel compatible processors, so won't run from a R-Pi as it has an ARM processor which can't run the code and I believe can't boot from CD either...

That said, there is no reason that all these tools shouldn't be compiled to run on the ARM processor and boot from the SD card as they are (mostly) all open source.
