Rescue Disk on USB Flash Drive Problem

Recommended Posts

Assistance please.


Historically, I've used the Rescue Disk from a CD, which works fine. Seemed like a good idea to create a USB Flash Drive for convenience. Following instructions listed here http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208286083 I formatted a brand new Sandisk Cruzer Slice 4GB unit as FAT32, downloaded latest version of RD ( and ran rescue2usb.exe, which reported successful creation. But when I tried to boot from this (an Asus desktop and then a Dell laptop), the boot failed with a simple message "BOOT ERROR". Repeated process on another Sandisk Cruzer Slice 4GB, same result.


I then used Multiboot to create the flash drive - this booted and worked OK but only up to a point, and it then failed with a page of Linux error messages, such as Kernel Panic. This was tried on both desktop and laptop.


As other people seem to have this running OK, I must be doing something simple wrong. Any suggestions please? Thanks.

Steveth, might have a fix for you.


I saw exactly the same results as you as I had gone through exactly the same steps.


As a last resort I did a FULL format on the flash drive in Windows rather than a QUICK, and what do you know, the boot process worked properly after recording the ISO to the flash drive with the Kaspersky "recorder".


Hope this might help you out, too.

I am not sure, but I think it is important that the UFD is formatted with an ACTIV, PRIMARY partition. Check through your Disk Manager.


(I tried to attach a screen shot, but to day I couldn't get it work.)
