So I was trying to create a sysRescue using a 4gb usb drive and I got done with the unmounting image part and then it says the system cannot find the device specified. Why is that? Do I need to get a new usb drive, maybe with higher storage or what? Appreciate the help :)

4GB is enough space for SysRescue.

The error you are seeing as far as i know is not caused by the ESET wizard, but appears to be some form of windows problem, or possibly a driver/usb port problem.

I never had the issue creating my SysRescue.

 

If you remove the usb drive during the error does the Sysrescue close or remain open ?

Reseating the USB stick and clicking ok does not allow you to proceed with detection of the usb drive ?

 

Are you able to see your usb stick after the fact in "My Computer".

 

From this point if your usb drive "appears" to be ok. I would perform a slow format on the usb disk with fat32, maybe even with a smaller allocation size, then format again with a quick and default allocation size, choosing fat32 or ntfs even.

Then retry creating your sysrescue disk, and maybe trying a different usb port on your computer, switch sides if on a laptop, or move from front to back if your on a desktop, sometimes usb headers on a board use a different controller then the usb ports on the back and you receive different results and usb behavior within windows.

I forgot to mention that it also pops up saying you need to format disk in drive G: before you can use it but when I tried formatting in FAT32 and 4096 allocation unit size it still didn't work. I used quick format cause it was the only option available. Also when I removed the USB drive during the error Sysrescue stayed open.

Hello Proton. 

 

I assume you are trying out the "old" SysRescue as that is what this thread is about.

 

If that is the case, then I guess this can be called progress in a way: https://forum.eset.com/topic/2372-eset-sysrescue-live-1090-released/

 

I would recommend that you try out the new ESET SysRescue Live to see what you think. :)

Hello,

Here is how to erase a USB flash drive so that it can be used for creating an ESET SysRescue Live drive, or reformatted for other use:

 

  • Open a Command Prompt (filename: CMD.EXE) in Windows. If you are running Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will need to open an elevated command prompt.
  • Start DiskPart (filename: DISKPART.EXE), the command line disk partitioning tool. The DISKPART> will appear.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "LIST DISK" (without quotes) and press enter. A list of currently-mounted disk drives will be displayed.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "LIST DISK" (without quotes) and press enter. A list of currently-mounted disk drives will be displayed. Your USB flash RAM drive will show up with a number like 1, 2, 3, 4 and so forth.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "SELECT DISK n" (without quotes), where n is the number of USB flash RAM drive and press enter.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "CLEAN ALL" (without quotes) and press enter. This tells DiskPart to zero-out (write 0's) across the entire disk. It may take several minutes for the operation to run, depending upon the capacity and speed of your USB flash RAM drive. When finished, you will have a completely empty USB flash drive.

At this point, you can type "EXIT" and press enter to quit if you are planning on making an ESET SysRescue Live drive.  However, if you would like to format the USB flash drive with a file system, make it bootable (for a Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 installation, etc.), you can do so by following these additional steps:

  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY" (without quotes) and press enter. This creates a primary disk partition utilizing all of the flash RAM drive's capacity.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "SELECT PARTITION 1" (without quotes) and press enter. This tells DiskPart you wish to perform operations on the partition (disk volume) you just created.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "ACTIVE" (without quotes) and press enter. This tells DiskPart to make the disk partition startable, e.g., allows an operating system to be booted from the partition.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type either one of the following commands:
    • "FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICK" (without quotes) and press enter to format the USB flash drive using the FAT32 file system
    • "FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK" (without quotes) and press enter to format the USB flash drive using the NTFS file system.
    It may take a moment or two to perform a quick format.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "ASSIGN" (without quotes) and press enter. This tells DiskPart to assign the first available drive letter to the partition (disk volume) you just created on the USB flash RAM drive.
  • At the DISKPART> prompt, type "EXIT" (without quotes) and press enter to exit the DiskPart program.

You should have now an USB flash drive which is empty, but can be used for file storage, or even as installation media for Windows, should you decide to copy the contents of an installation DVD over to the drive and later use it for that purpose.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky
