  1. Hi Steve, thanks for your help. The parameter to select the language worked. But if it is used together with the locale-parameter, the German umlauts are broken. Not so important for me, since I can now execute scripts like ./install.sh without finding the right keys by trial an error (umlauts are rarely used). Your other hint regarding the partnew-command was good. Although I read about it the evening before my post, I didn't used it because it just looked like a nasty workaround. But I tried it and it worked. It is still a nasty workaround since partnew creates a new partition which overlaps my existing (hd0,0) and GParted and fdisk complains about it. I also have to use different partition-numbers if I want to use this workaround for different ISOs. A better solution would be, if ESET would support the iso-scan/filename-parameter as ubuntu does. Here is my now working config: title ESET SysRescue 1.0.16 (20180521) # https://www.eset.com/de/support/sysrescue/ find --set-root /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso (0xff) || map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 --mem /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso (0xff) map --hook partnew (hd0,1) 0x0 /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso root (0xff) kernel /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper locale=de_DE.UTF-8 keyboard-configuration/layoutcode=de initrd /casper/initrd.lz Tom
  2. Hi, I have a ntfs-formated usb-drive, which uses Grub4Dos to boot several live-systems directly from the ISOs . I wanted to add your "SysRescue 1.0.16" to this stick and it mostly works. But some things are missing. Here is the working configuration for Grub4Dos title ESET SysRescue 1.0.16 (20180521) find --set-root /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso (0xff) || map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 --mem /ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso (0xff) map --hook kernel (0xff)/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper live-media=/dev/disk/by-label/<Label of my usb-drive> locale=de_DE.UTF-8 initrd=(0xff)/casper/initrd.lz I was able to set the locale, but I still missing the German keyboard-layout. I can set this after boot with "setxkbmap de". Is there a kernel parameter for this command available? I wanted to boot from the ISO without extracting it. This usually works, until the kernel and initrd are loaded. Then you have to pass a parameter like "iso-scan/filename=ESET-SysRescue-1.0.16.iso" such that the system knows where to find the ISO. Several sources say, that ESET does not support the Ubuntu-parameter "iso-scan/filename" which should normally work. Instead I had to extract the "casper" to the root of my usb-drive. Which parameter should I use to boot SysRescue without extracting files from the ISO? Kind regards Tom
