SystemRescueCd is a Linux system rescue disk available as a bootable CD-ROM or USB stick for administrating or repairing your system and data after a crash. It aims to provide an easy way to carry out admin tasks on your computer, such as creating and editing the hard disk partitions.
It comes with a lot of software such as disk management tools (parted, partimage, fsarchiver, filesystem tools, ...), network administration programs and simple text editors . It can be used for both Linux and windows computers, and on desktops as well as servers.
This rescue system requires no installation as it can be booted from a CD/DVD drive, and USB stick, or from the network using PXE. But it can be installed on the hard disk if you wish. It comes with up to date kernels to provide support for recent hardware and also for all important file systems (ext2/ext3/ext4, xfs, btrfs, ntfs, reiserfs, vfat), as well as network filesystems (samba and nfs).
Still having trouble using SysRescue CD v4.9.5 and even earlier 4.4.0 booting an old AMD K6 1Ghz 32 bit machine. Tried boot option edd=off still hangs right after "Loading initram.igz" Funny a much older version of SysResCD v 1.58 seems to work fine Why is this ? Thanks
Please add VeraCrypt to the featured software! Writing this here as apparently no new registrations are allowed in the forum. Also could you please open a discussion board here (especially if you have closed forums)?
I REALLY like SystemRescue, but prefer to pair it up with KNOPPIX on a USB drive. HOWEVER, I REALLY would like to see downloading access to the ISO be made available via TORRENT, as TORRENT is easier on servers and downloaders alike!
