Preferred Solution: Does rescue disk delete data? I have old IdeaPad Y470, disk error repaired, wants rescue disk

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have 2 pcs (an old IBM Aptiva with W95) and a newer generic PIII with Windows XP Home). The IBM Aptiva has blown its power supply. I want to rescue the data on it's 3.2 gig WD HD. It is currently jumpered as a single/master. I'm sure it would be fine with another power supply but since that is not an option, and all I want is to recover data like files and pics, can I rejumper it as a slave and put it in the newer computer and access the data?. Is there another way to access my old data?
 

Answer:Rescue data from W95 hard disk to an XP system

Putting in as another drive in XP is the easiest way to get things off it. XP will handle the FAT file system just fine and you can drag and drop,

Have a new Double Power 8.1 Tablet that I've upgraded to Win 10. Now I've got it set up just right, I'm attempting to create a Rescue Disk. Purchased a 16gb micro-usb drive which is successfully recognized. Ran 'Create Rescue Disk' from Windows search and checked 'copy system files' b4 proceeding. Process fails after about 200mb copied to disk.

USB drive was formatted MSDOS32, reformatted as NTFS and retried. Got same "Create Rescue Disk has encountered an error and cannot continue" error.

Windows 10 has been made so 'user-friendly' that it gives you no useful information when it has an error. How can you know what size hammer to use as a workaround? If the process would tell you what it doesn't like, you could figure out what to do to make it happy.

Anybody experienced with 'Create Rescue Disk' on Win10?

I just bought a new computer from Newegg and decided that after looking at the info seen here that Kaspersky Internet Security would be a reasonable option to put on my two computers at home. The installation went fairly well (only a couple glitches). Want to create a "rescue disk" but in addition to downloading "PEbuilder" (no problem there) it calls for access to the XP Service Pack 2 installation disk. The machine didn't come with a separate XP SP2 installation disk. How do I come up with a XP SP2 installation disk?

Hi there people. First post so sorry if it's in the wrong place or anything. I've had as much of a search as I can and haven't found anyone with quite the same situation as me. The questions come at the end of the rambling background to my problem!!! Hope you can make it through to the end! My E520 recently just went beyond it's warranty and surprise surprise fairly soon after that I got a warning through ThinkVantage that there was a problem with my internal hard drive. When I googled the problem it said that the hard drive was going to fail and to replace it immediately.  As I (like an idiot) hadn't got round to backing up my computer properly (I'd saved all music, photos and videos to a seperate hard drive but hadn't done a Rescue and Recovery or Windows back up) I went out and bought a seperate hard drive to back up the computer and some disks to create the recovery boot disks.  When I went to the Q drive to do this I misunderstood the question about do I want to create a data back up disk. I thought this meant all my media so I said no and created just the boot recovery disks.  So my question (told you I'd get there) is this. When I replace the internal hard drive and use the boot disks to install windows will I then be able to use the Lenovo Rescue and Recovery to restore my computer to it's former glory? Or will the fact that I'm not restoring the Lenovo skin (sorry if my terminology is wrong here. Not sure what to call it) ... Read more

Question: Rescue Disk

How do I create a rescue disk on a cd? Every thing I've found so far requires a floppy and I don't have a floppy drive. I had System Suite on cd and was able to use it as a rescue disk, but I lost it. Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Rescue Disk

You can put anything that works off floppies onto a CD. The main reason people don't is it wastes a CD since it uses up like 1% of it's space. Plus before it was nicer for compatibilty but now there are getting to be a few computers without floppy drives (because companies just couldn't spare the 5$ it cost to install them).

At any rate though, anything you can do with a floppy you can do with a CD. Some older systems can't use a CD as a boot device though.

i have had to restore Win 10 7 times since first install. just updated audio drivers, and lost internet connection, which is what always happens---seems to happen at almost any time it feels like it.

Also lost Word and the templates it came with after first restore, When installed 10, word was there, and restore promised everything that came with my computer would be there---word, brochures, resumes, and other templates it came with were all gone. (Not office).

Updated from Win 7, and now 10 crashes and it takes forever to restore it and redo all my malware, chrome, all my email addresses, and many more things.

Rescue DVD would be handy, but the places that show rescue disk just say 'download' with NO explanation of what it is or what will happen if i use it. Anyone know of a better place to download a rescue disk for the next time 10 crashes, for it will, that i know for certain. need it for a DVD.

Any ideas, or will it be no better than just doing yet another win 10 restore. (have tried all the router tricks---unplug, reset, etc etc.) Nothing works to get back a connection but a restore of 10, which takes forever to get up to speed after restore. Getting really sick of this happening.

grateful for any options for rescue disk,

Windows 10 Restore / Reset only restores the Windows 10 OS.

Thus you may have lost all the programs that where in windows 7...

If you can restore the prior windows 7 OS, I would try that..

Otherwise just Clean Install Windows 10 by booting from the setup media..

Can you boot the computer with a different CD/DVD, such as the Windows 7 disc to confirm that it's not a drive problem? If you can boot a different disc try burning another copy of the Bit Defender ISO, perhaps to a different brand of media.

Question: rescue disk

do I need a rescue disk if I have my windows disk

Answer:rescue disk

Depends on what type of PC you are using and exactly what you class as a "Rescue Disk".A laptop rescue disk will put your laptop back to the manufacturers release state but will also contain all the drivers required.A desktop equivalent will allow you to access the PC in the event of software failure and may prevent loss of data. It may also be capable of doing the same on a laptop.A backup disk - generally an image such as that produced by Acronis True Image - is able to recover data totally at the point it was made.

Hi HammerHead

It doesn't matter so much now if your disk is made with or without the service pack package as there's a trick shown here to make it run either way - Repair Install.

Answer:Uniblue disk rescue is it any gd

It's good for whomever is selling it...if that's what you mean.

If you are asking is the outlay of cash justified...then my answer would be a question: Just what is it that you think this program will do...that cannot be done safer and more reliably...by currently existing free software, combined with the knowledge of others?

My impression is that it's a defrag utility, there are plenty of those around that do the job...without costing anything.

FWIW: I paid for a defrag utility (Perfect Disk) because I tend to move my files around a lot (2 systems, 8 hard drives) and I liked the optional characteristics of the program, compared to the XP defrag utility.

Beauty is in the eye of the...buyer .

Answer:cant get rescue disk to work

You didn't say if you checked this.

Have you checked in BIOS (f2 on that machine to enter setup) and confirmed boot order, setting USB or CD to number one.

You also need to disable secure boot in BIOS until you have things running, can't find manual with full BIOS listing but new machines have this BIOS setting.

See this tutorial on clean install. The Media creator tool to create a USB key only works on Windows 10 machine. If you try on Win 7 machine it says it can't find USB key.

I also read that to boot UEFI from USB key it should be FAT32. The media creator handles this. If you created key using different process you will have to watch this.

G: Docs Backup=== D:

Anyone know why this might happen? Thanks,

I have always had the same thing as you the drive letters other than C: present differently during a restore.

I assumed it was because i switch D + E around for my own personal preference for presentation when i set my computer up after a clean install. I am picking that during a restore the letters are presented as how Windows dictated them before i changed them.

I am really not sure, this is just my take on why it happens i am sure someone will be able to give us a more technical point of view

You do have a recovery partition on the hard drive which can be used to recover. What advice do you want before going forward? You have burnable disks or a usb thumb drive ready to write, corrrect? The process is pretty automatic.

There are plenty of rescue disks offered for free by AV vendors, the most used and effective are Kaspersky, Bitdefender, DrWeb and Avira, that you can use to clean up a pc.
But in case of deep infection or heavy locked system i would suggest to not use any software if not under the advices of an expert in malware removal or following a specific guide. Always ask our expert malware removal members!

Question: Anvi Rescue Disk

Remove ransomware

Your computer is locked up due to ransomware infection and it is even unable to boot into safe mode for necessary troubleshooting? Then you may need this rescue disk to save your OS from the evil claws of ransomware infection. Read more about ransomware infections below.

Ransomware-A Growing Menace
Ransomware is a growing menace facing worldwide computer users, especially in North America and Europe. Ransomware that locks a computer and uses law enforcement imagery to intimidate victims has spread from Eastern Europe to Western Europe, the United States, and Canada over the past year. This malware is highly profitable, with as many as 2.9 percent of compromised users paying out. An investigation into one of the smaller players in this scam identified 68,000 compromised computers in just one month, which could have resulted in victims being defrauded of up to $400,000 USD. And a conservative estimate is over $5 million dollars a year extorted from victims due to ransomware infections. However, the real number is likely much higher.

Hi,

Are rescue disks used for multiple issues? If so, could somebody please let me know when they should be used, and if there are any that they recommend. I am not experiencing any issues at the moment, I just don't know much about them and am hoping an expert on here can explain it a little more in detail.

I cannot get Macrium rescue disk to boot the computer is new HP I-5 processor 12 Gig memory running win 10 home 64 bit

I think the problem is the way the bios works but could REALLYuse some help I posted a similar question yesterday yesterday but something must have gone wrong as I cannot find that post.

Tried TODO software just for experiment and the TODO rescue will not boot up either.

Made the rescue disks in macrium and todo placed the disk in the optical drive shut down the computer waited 30 seconds and when turn it on no Macrium screen comes up instead it just boots to Win 10. Tried pressing the enter key the C key nothing. Appreciate help with the bios whatever it takes

Also as long as the computer boots to the desktop can you restore a Macrium image on an external hard drive from the program on your desktop thus avoiding the need for a rescue disk (as long as the computer bootsto the desktop)

I have been asked to help a friend format his hard drive and reinstall his OS 98SE, at the moment we are only in contact by telephone, he tells me it is a 2 year old Time machine (he thinks?) with only 1 disk (a rescue disk) to reinstall everything.My problem is although I know how to format and reinstall using the appropriate disks I have no knowledge of using a rescue disk, I know this is a bit vague at the moment and I am trying to get more information off him, but until I do could anyone point me in the right direction as to reinstalling his OS from a rescue disk.My other problem is he would like to upgrade to XP, can this be done using an XP upgrade disk after I reinstall his 98SE, as with a clean install of XP I would not have the driver disks for his Mobo, graphics, modem etc.Any help would be much appreciated.Bill

Answer:How to reinstall OS from rescue disk

click here and click Time Support, and then under Technical Support, select Reload, and see which option your friend has.If he has only a rescue floppy, it's Orange Recovery Disk version 3-5. If he has a floppy and a Reload CD, then it's Orange Recovery Disk version 6 and Reload CD. If he has only a CD, then it's Reload/Backup CD Only. Click on the link and read the procedure. Before restoring everything to factory settings, better detach any new hardware added by your friend first, such as printers.On upgrade to XP, even if your friend has a Reload CD, it's not an upgrade qualifying CD, and so he can't format the hard disk first and install xp from scratchHe can certainly insert an XP upgrade CD in a working 98 and choose the upgrade route to install XP.He may be able to install a new fresh copy of XP (instead of upgrade) by inserting the upgrade CD from within 98, and select the New installation (Advanced) mode, but I'm not sure about this.Trouble with the combination of a Reload CD of an older OS and an XP upgrade CD is that in future, if you need to reinstall a fresh copy of XP, he will have to reload 98 from the Reload CD, and then install XP, which is a real pain.

Hello:

I was wondering if anyone has or is using the Vexira Rescue Disk set? If so, have you had any difficulty updating the rescue disk set with the latest virus definitions? I have tried to copy the vdf.aa and vdf.ab files to a floppy disk. Then I selected the update option within the program. The program searches the floppy but cannot find the update files that are on the disk. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Vexira Rescue Disk Set

Hello Petlydecker:

I have used the Vexira RDS many times since I discovered it late last year. It's a very useful tool when it works properly.

I've encountered the problem you posted here. Try redownloading the updated .vdf file and split it with the latest version of the Rescue Disk (re-download the ISO, burn it, then use the utility on the new cd to split the .vdf file)

Using Win10 Pro 64-bit. Have not updated to the Anniversy version yet. PC is an HP desktop which was updated from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro (many months ago). It has UEFI firmware but not Secure Boot.

I use Backup & Restore (Win 7 version) for my backups and to create System images on an external hard disk. Seems to work fine. I recently used that app to create a bootable Rescue disk on a CD. Seemed to create just fine and I can open it an see the files on it.

However, my attempt to test booting from it failed. I got into the BIOS BOOT options and selected the CD drive. The system immediately restarted and tried to boot from the CD. However, it claimed that the disk was not bootable. And then it tried over and over without success. I had to force a power off by holding down the power button. Powering on resulted in a normal system restart.

I've read a bunch of descriptions of how to boot from a rescue disk with Win 10. So far none of them has been accurate as to how to enter the BIOS and how to select the boot options on my system. However, they got me close enough that I did get to select the CD for booting.

I'm wondering a couple things:
1. Should I use the windows built-in facility to generate a rescue disk (rather than the backup & restore app)?
2. Is it easier to boot from a USB thumb drive rather than a CD?

Answer:Can't Boot from Win 10 Rescue Disk

Hi, as an experiment to convince yourself about booting from a CD/DVD and to gain a useful tool, try burning this iso to a CD/DVD:
Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

Creating a bootable CD/DVD simply requires burning an appropriate iso to it.

Creating a bootable USB drive from the same iso requires a program such as Rufus.

People here find Windows Backup and Restore (Windows 7) somewhat unreliable and basic.
Macrium Reflect (free) has been found more reliable and is updated and supported.
There are other 3rd party programs that do similar things, some with a simpler GUI, but some of these have been found problematical in some circumstances.

From what I can see, disk imaging is storing your system data in a detachable drive (since I read it can't be on the drive you're imaging) and a rescue CD basically is made so that if you have a crash, you can pop that **** in and you can boot from it and it will save your pc. Is this all right?

Answer:Disk Imaging and Rescue CD

Its more of a portable copy of your exact OS. a bootable copy for that matter. A disk image is usually formatted in an .iso format. If this 'rescue' cd can mount drives, then yes, it can restore a broken system.

Good morning to everybody.
I'm a new entry and my English is poor. I'm sorry for that.
I've tried a lot of AV rescue disk for my children's notebook with W 8.1 installed.
One is Asus K55VD and the second is Acer E1-570G.
I've tried Avira Rescue System, Comodo Rescue Disk, Kaspersky rescue disk, Dr Web Live Disk, but none of them runs good. Most of them crash before scanning the computer. Note that I've disabled secure boot in both notebook.
Instead, under my desktop pc with W7 all of them work normally.
First question: does it exist at least one AV live cd which surely work good in W 8.1?
Second question: when I'll find one, how can I update it in an unbootable computer with only a mobile Internet connection? I've only got a USB pen drive for my Internet access.
Hope I was clear in explaining my problems. If no, I'm sorry.
Thanks a lot to everybody.
 

Answer:Which AntiVirus Rescue Disk for W 8.1?

Hello sobi,

Here are some suggestions...and other MT members are sure to offer solid help.

You can create Emsisoft Emergency Kit rescue disk.

EEK supports most live CDs such as BartPE.

Just combine EEK and Live CD.

However, no Emsi products perform a boot-up scan (before Windows loads) as the scan engine is not configured to do so.

Rescue disk performance can be tricky...plus certain malware may prevent install/AV run.

Sometimes just renaming the AV something like iexplorer.exe, firefox.exe, etc can solve the issue, but not always.

Sometimes there are issues running a rescue disk from a USB flash drive.

Did you try running the rescue disks with secure boot enabled?

Hello~
I just installed free AVG and when prompted to create rescue disk a box came up saying the C: drive uses NTFS and Rescue Disc may not have access to it . What does that mean and should I create a rescue disc anyway? I clicked "no" but will be prompted evey time I update .
Do I really need the rescue disc? I'm so confused and have never used AVG but read great things about it.
Also, do I need ZoneAlarm as a firewall or is te Windows firewall enough? I just got rid of all the Mcafee that was installed on my laptop.Thanks so much for anyone's help!

Answer:AVG question..rescue disk?

Just skip the rescue disk. If you read the AVG documentation, page 11 section e, it states that the Rescue Disks are only for Win95-WinME because they can't read NTFS partitions like what XP has by default.

On March 20, 2013 Kaspersky Lab announces release of a new version of Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10.

The full version number is 10.0.32.17.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is designed to scan and disinfect x86 and x64-compatible computers that have been infected. The application should be used when the infection is so severe that it is impossible to disinfect the computer using anti-virus applications or malware removal utilities (such as Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool) running under the operating system. In this case, disinfection is more efficient because malware programs do not gain control when the operating system is being loaded.

New in Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10:

Hi
I Am Fixing A PC running win98se With 4 Viruses For My Daughters Friend.
I Was Unable To Get Online Until I Deleted Tcp/ip And Reinstalled It. Once I Did That I Was Able To Get Back Online. I Ran Trend Micro And Found And Deleted 4 Viruses. Then I Downloaded And Ran Avg. I Rebooted And When It Rebooted There Was A Big Red Box That Said There Was A Virus And I Should Use A Clean Boot Disk And Create And Use Rescue Disks. I Did Both And Began To Run The Rescue Disk. The First Scan Of The Computer (maybe 6gb Between 2 Drives) Said 4 Viruses Were Detected. This Took 15 Hours (midnight Last Nite To 5pm Today). Once It Finished Scanning It Said The Viruses Were Detected So I Chose To Clean The Drives. Now It Is Scanning Both Drives Again To Clean And/or Delete The Viruses. This Will Probably Be Another 15 Hours. Is This Normal That It Takes So Long? I Know For A Fact That The Viruses Are Contained On The "c" Drive But I Am Not Sure If I Stop It After The "c" Drive Scan Is Complete That The Entire Process Will Complete Properly.
These Are The Viruses That Were Found:
C:\bndlwr~`1.exe - Trojan Horse Downloader.xren.a
C:\windows\system\atpart~`1.dll -trojan Horse
Downloader.remah.e
C:\windows\system\updak.dll Downloader.agent.3.d
C:\windows\system\lspak.dll Downloader.agent.3.j

Thanks For Any Info
 

Answer:Avg And Rescue Disk-how Long Does The Process Take??

First, which version of AVG are you running, Version 6, the free/shareware edition, or Version 7, the full up commercial/industrial version? I ask cause I run Version 7 and it has a far larger database of viruses to call on when it runs a search and interdiction operation. If you are running the "Detailed Complete Search, Identify, and Remove, iteration of AVG virus hunter, you could need all the time it seems to be taking. Second, you say you are running a Windows 98 O.S. but on what version of motherboard, pentium, pentium 2 ? The speed of the board may have a bearing on the time being consumed. Also you do not state how big the C: in question is. I note this because it would take far longer to search and 80GB harddrive than a 4GB. AVG will generate a rescue disk for you once you solve your virus issues. There is a subroutine for just that requirement. I would also suggest that you create a boot disk for the machine as a backup. You might also want to search this site and score the software for Hijack this and Adaware to check and clean the harddrive of spyware and ad-ware that could also be able to cause you problems. If time continues to be an issue, you can contact AVG directly, they typically are very quick to respond to questions but they do like to have all the information and machine specs so that they can get a better feel for what may be going on.

Let me suggest some powerful combination of AV rescue discs

Kaspersky recue disc
Bitdefender rescue disc (tried: updates are stored)
Avira rescue disc
With the above tools (if at all you need multiple products to scan via boot mode, one after the other), your PC will have the least chances of hosting malware anymore, be it boot sector or else.
This is because malware definitions are important in this case. All the 3 also have great complementary detection rates on VT (I'd love to add Qihoo cloud, but that's N/A here).

Now, add the following complementary scanners to focus on some other stubborn infections:

Dr.Web live disc
Anvi malware killer
I'm not mentioning Emsisoft, Zemana or eScan, since those are designed for scanning while logged in to windows (except for eScan, don't need it when BD is there).

Check out Sardu MultiBoot creator (there are some known problems, like Kaspersky cannot be burned with any other rescue disc in single usb) to burn multiple AV rescue discs and other utilities in a single USB :

Spoiler: SARDU Screenshot

You can set persistent storage for some of the discs as available in Sardu.
You can also add AIRTO for Windows troubleshooting in Sardu

My computer HP Presario for some unknown reason is now unable to make a "Restore Point" or "Backup". I am now using Avast Antivirus software (Free), and note a "Rescue Disk" application is available, and I have made a copy on a USB flash drive. I would appreciate information and advise as to how it works? Is this "Rescue Disk" entirely different from Windows Restore Point? How is the USB "Rescue Disk" activated? Thank you, BobbyScot.

Answer:Avast Antivirus (Rescue Disk).

This is what you do. It is easy and it is the best. Download the free Macrium Reflect. Its only purpose is to make back ups. You will then make a rescue disk that is only used when you have to rescue your computer
Once a week you back a back up image (very similar to system restore point). If you ever have a problem and you cannot boot, you use the rescue disc to boot and then you put the most current image on your hard drive. You are up and running again. The avast is not the same. It allows you to get the computer to boot, but if you have a virus or other problems you will still have them. With Macrium, you get rid of the old and install a new image.

Hi!

I have an IBM 600X laptop w/ PIII 500MHZ, 384MB ram, CDROM, and Floppy drives. I was going to sell this to a friend and formatted my hard drive and was going to reinstall win98se for him. After I formatted drive I shoved my boot rescue disk into the floppy drive and turned it on. It informed me that this was the wrong rescue disk for this computer, did I want to continue? I looked around and made sure I didn't have any other rescue disks and thinking it was wrong told it to go ahead and use the disk. It replaced my CMOS and now it does not work, it will not read any of the drives, and I can't get it to start in any kind of mode. It will come on, it shows an IBM backround and starts with an ascii picture of a floppy drive and a floppy disk, it doesn't matter what key I press, it either does nothing or freezes showing a number and letter combination in the upper left corner. By-the-way it was the wrong rescue disk, it was the one that belonged to my home computer, IBM clone, PIII, etc.. Can I fix this? Any help would be appreciated.

If my ultrabase has the DVDROM drive, is it possible to create rescue and recovery disks?Can ISO image files be created, copied over the network to another machine and written with that drive? Or some other method?

Answer:Create rescue disk without rw drive

which machine are we talking about can you post your model number? When you say Rescue and Recovery files can be directly backed up onto external hdd, or internal hdd and transferred. If you mean the Recovery Media discs which contain your os and drivers, then you will need an cd burner or dvd burner. Alternatively you can image the hdd using the Easeus Disk Copy software (a free download.)

Hello -I'm fixing a laptop for a friend. I have determined that the hard drive is corrupted so I inserted a rescue disc into the computer...wouldn't boot into it. I had to change the BIOS settings to legacy in order for it to boot to the disc. Once the files loaded it went to a black screen and a small blue status bar appeared in the top left corner. It went full then shutdown the computer. This loops and never boots into the disc. If I set BIOS to defaults, it bypasses the CDROM and tries to boot into Windows 8, where it gives an error. Can anyone help?Thanks

Answer:Windows 8, Cannot boot into Rescue Disk

Please give the make and model of the laptop. They differ in how the recovery disc/partition is set up.

I purchased a Seagate Pro External Drive and have the free Acronis V8 version. I don't have a DVD burner - just a CD burner.

I plan to clone/image my C drive, but understand that I will need a bootable rescue disk if my C drive fails? I would like to be able to save all the other software and settings I have installed after the factory installed programs.

Do I need a (additional) software program for it and which one? Is there any free software for creating a bootable rescue disk?

I'm still a newbie and therefore need something easy to work with. Thank you.

BTW: Windows XP Home edition - free Zonealarm - AVG 8 - Skype - Firefox - anti-spyware etc.
 

Answer:How do I create a bootable rescue Disk?

Hi

A CD Burner is fine for the Rescue Disk as I have my Acronis Rescue Disk on CDRW, yes if you have a major problem with your Windows OS or hardware failure, it will allow you to recover your OS ( Operating System ) and all your settings and installed software so like you never had an problems.

No Acronis and its True Image allows you to create the Rescue CD from its menus and this CD is bootable, all you would need to do is to enter your BIOS ( at boot time you should see the key press needed to enter your BIOS, flashes up quickly so keep sharpe eye out for it ) and make sure the 1st boot device is the CDROM.

I would get hold of a CDR or CDRW blank CD, then start Acronis and click as highlighted in the below image "create bootable rescue media" and follow the prompts.




this process is all automatic, just read whats in the prompts and at the end you will have a bootable Acronis Rescue CD, and this once booted to is a light disk run version of Acronis True Image which will allow you to recover your saved Image file.

Hi.

I need to make a bootable rescue disk so that I can restore my computer. I have made the backup image using Drive Image XML but I can't make the bootable CD using Bart PE because my Windows CD is OEM, from Dell. Bart PE needs a windows cd slipstreamed with SP2, which I can't do because it's OEM, and if I could it probably would not work anyway, due to the OEM thing.

So, is there any way that I can make a bootable rescue CD using my OEM windows CD?

Thanks.

Answer:Can I create a bootable rescue CD with OEM disk

I am nearly certain that my XP Home SP2 disc that came with my PC when I bought it was an OEM disc, nonetheless I just made a bootable Slipstreamed SP3 version from it using Nlite which you can get from the following link, http://www.nliteos.com/ It is very easy to use and does the whole thing for you.

I am a satisfied user of AVG Antivirus and wish to update my resuce disk. I have made previous rescue disks in the past with no problem, but for some strange reason I am unable to make a rescue disk at this time.

I tried making the standard rescue disks and the program cycled through to the 2nd floppy disk and then I got an error message indicating that it was not able to make a resuce disk. Apparently two disk are required for the routine.

HI, I checked mine and there was only one. The problem with the rescue disks is that they get out of date. I keep the resident program up to date and hope for the best but so far I have never had a virus that got through the program. I don't P2P though and scan every download. Peace Mal

I've just become aware that you should be able to make a ASR (Automated System Recovery) disk by going to Start>Programs>Accessories>System tools>Backup.However I do not have 'Backup' in System Tools. This maybe because I am running under Windows Nemsis 4 Titan Edition. Even the person who installed this (who had better be nameless) can't (or won't!) tell me much about it, although it does come with a load of other apps including MS Office 2003. Titan Edition 'looks and feels' like XP Professional and when you go to Start>Control Panel>System it states 'Microsoft XP Professional Service Pack 2'When I go to Start>Help & Support and search for 'Automated System recovery' and select 'Create an Automated System Recovery Set using Backup' it states that the page cannot be displayed. My computer is not on a network.If anyone knows how to create an ASR under Titan, this would be much appreciated.TIA

Answer:Windows XP Rescue Disk - can't make one!!

I have never heard of "Titian edition" Its not even listed on the microsoft website click hereSo I would imagine that its not a legit copy of XP, to install the backup ultity you need to install it from the XP cd. This page here under number 5 thou links to a download location for the file you need that will install the backup ultility click here

Cammi, I don't wish to sound negative, but if it ever comes to the point where you need to use those rescue disks, then it's time to reformat the hard drive and start again. I wouldn't bother creating the rescue disks

Hi,

Has anyone been having problems scanning from the Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 bootable ISO recently?

Yesterday I succesfully downloaded and burnt the ISO, and booted to the point of running the scan. However, when attempting a scan it reported an error code "80032" or similar. I tried updating the malware defintions, but despite it actually downloading and reporting 100% download, the database is reported as "corrupted". I tried several times with the same result and could still not scan. I also tried rolling back the database, but without any success.

I also tried downloading the ISO (kav_rescue_10.iso) again (Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10) and burning on 4x speed to new media, but exactly the same error occurred.

In the end I was able to use a bootable F-Secure, but I am intrigued to know why the Kaspersky Rescue Disk would not work.

Thanks,
Golden

Hello every one.  I was trying to restore the T61 7660-CTO to it's original setup using the Rescue & Recovery 4 program.  After re-booting the system as requested by the program, a Product Recovery Supplimentary Disk was being requested.  I answered no because I didn't have one.  So the next command was to Insert Product Recovery Disk 1, so I placed back the CD I was using (the one generated by the R & R program).  Unfortunately an error message appeared "this is not the correct disk.  Removed the disk and press cancel".  So now the T61 is just looping and the R & R process is not proceeding.  Need you help please.  Thanks in advance.

This goes out to anyone who upgraded to Norton's 2003 from an earlier version. I just downloaded NAV's 2003 but I cannot create the set of rescue disks. When I open NAV 2003 and click on the rescue button and then the create button it tells me only 1 floppy disk is required. I know for a fact at least 7 and possibly 8 are needed. Has anyone else had this problem and if so please tell me how you resolved it. I've already been in contact with Symantec but they are very slow at helping.

Greetings all,
I am interested in getting my teeth into Aomei Backupper Standard 3.2 with regards to backing up and creating clone disks. My problem is understanding how to det the new Windows 10 Bios/UEFI settings sorted so that it will boot up from the rescue drive created by the Aomei program.
I am familiar with the older Bios mechanism with Boot order but I can't get my head around the new UEFI options.
Any ideas where to look...
Best wishes,
s.
 

Answer:Booting From Aomei Rescue Disk

I'm sure we could mostly have lived quite happily without UEFI. I certainly could have anyway You need to search your UEFI/BIOS settings for Secure Boot and disable it, and also look for Legacy Boot Options and enable that. Then it starts behaving more like a traditional BIOS system and you can boot from other disks and flash drives.

Says I need to uninstall Rescue Disk. Was not listed under Add/Remove Programs. Was listed in CCleaner remove programs list, but it said it could not find uninstaller. Deleted entire Rescue Disk folder from hard dive. McAfee still says it's installed. Obviously something is still in the registry or something. How can I get rid of this so I can install the McAfee software??

Hi
I have a hp laptop with windows 8 the is used I was trying to make a set of rescue disk but it will only let you make one set. I have been trying to get the set of rescue disk from the person that I bought the hp laptop from. Keep getting the runaround from him. Does anyone know how to make a Second set rescue disk? Thank you for any help on this.

Answer:How to make a second set of Rescue Disk in Windows 8

I note on this HP page, it clearly says (with their bold added),

HP recovery software allows you to make only one recovery backup.

I suspect that is due to licensing agreements.
So I suggest you use Windows Backup, or perhaps Acronis or another program to make a backup image of your disk. The advantage there is it will be a current backup. Otherwise the HP recovery disk will take you all the way back to when the machine was new.

Hello everyone. Today, I uninstalled the Computer Associates' Protecton package that included Anti-Spy and Anti-Virus. The package came for free from being a customer of SBC Yahoo! DSL.

Then I installed AVG Free Edition and in the process of installation, it recommended that I create a "Rescue Disk" file in case something happens. Well, so I tried creating one, in the C:/Program Files/Grisoft file, but it said the task couldn't be done.

I should also mention that my C: Drive is NTFS and AVG mentioned that it was likely that Rescue Disk couldn't be created in NTFS format.

It would be great if someone can lend some insight into this matter. I thank you in advance.

Peter.

Answer:Can't Create Rescue Disk Files

Maybe you should try to create the rescue disk on a floppy. Having the rescue disk on drive C: is useless if something goes wrong and you can't access drive C: later.
