Installation on an USB stick

If you are interested in installing SystemRescueCd on an USB stick, you must download the CD-ROM version (ISO image) first from the current page.

Testing the downloaded file

To confirm that the download was successful, you should check the MD5 checksum of the file. Type md5sum path/to/file. md5sum is available at md5deep. This is an improved version. Here are the binary for Win32, and the sources for Linux.

sha1sum is a more secure than md5sum to hash files. This program is a part of coreutils for linux and there is also sha1sum.exe for win32.

Writing the ISO image file to a CDRom

On linux you can use either command line tools such as cdrecord/wodim or graphical tools such as k3b, brasero or xfburn.

To use wodim or cdrecord run the following command in a console:

cdrecord systemrescuecd-x86-x.y.z.iso 

On Windows use software such as Nero or download ImgBurn which is free.

Online documentation

Reading the Quick Start Guide is recommended if it is your first time using SystemRescueCd. It's also available in German, French, Spanish, Italian. You may also be interested in the Complete documentation for more details.

Beta/unstable versions

Beta versions are available too. If you want to test the latest features/updates, or just need it, you can test next version and help us debug new features.
