ESET Rescue System based on Linux won't boot

Recommended Posts


Eset offers a Micro Unix System to boot from CD-ROM or USB-Stick. This is very useful.

Since Microsoft delivered a Boot Sector Update most linux based USB-Sticks won't boot again.

What can I do?

Please follow the instructions at https://support.eset.com/en/kb3509.

If you are using a modern system with UEFI, boot to legacy BIOS first as per https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/boot-to-uefi-mode-or-legacy-bios-mode?view=windows-11 as suggested by the KB.

On my old PC w/legacy BIOS, I had zip success w creating  boot able SysRescue media with the .IMG download option. The .ISO download worked w/o issue. The difference between the two downloads is the .ISO one requires you to manually perform a signature update prior to running a scan.
