Default Bootable Disk Checker

It'* been a while since I've used one, so what kind of bootable disk checker should I buy/download? What is the best?

I'm not even sure what you mean by "boot disk checker"

I figure you either want something that will tell you what OS the boot disk is for
or
you want something bootable that will check your system for problems, viruses, spyware ...
or
you want something that will check your bootdisk for changes?

Could you explain what what your looking for does?
I'm a little confused.

I want it to check the hard drive for errors (and boot, not run under windows)

Why not just invoke the SMART logic built into the drive to have it test itself?

I use smartmontools to do just that.
