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 SHA1 checksum of the file. Type sha1sum path/to/file, and it should match the checksum provided on this page. This checksum program is part of coreutils on Linux and should be pre-installed with most distributions.

You can download a binary for windows from gnuwin32 or similar binaries from md5deep.

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.
