What is a Bootable Rescue Image and how to use it?


The SafeGuard Easy Bootable Rescue Image offers a full SafeGuard Easy Emergency Disk which is bootable as well. In addition, the SafeGuard Easy Emergency Disk Wizard will give you the option of creating a bootable start floppy that includes a system kernel, Emergency Tools and driver files for the keyboard layout. This is an easy way of combining a boot floppy and a SafeGuard Easy emergency floppy.

It offers exactly the same features as the Emergency Disk. The main difference is, that it provides you the possibility to create an kernel backup and keyboard drivers automatically on the disk, which is also bootable. There will be no difference although you choose the Emergency Disk or the Bootable Rescue Image, the functionalities of the Emergency Tools will stay the same.

How to create a bootable emergency floppy with the SafeGuard Easy Emergency Disk Wizard
Although the option for creating a bootable startfloppy is not active in the default setting of Emergency Disk Wizard, to activate this settings you can:

- Download the boot image file (EMERDISK.img) and save it to the SafeGuard Easy directory.
- Start the Emergency Disk Wizard
- Select the "Create start floppy with SafeGuard Easy emergency files and save kernel."
- The Emergency Disk Wizard creates a bootable start floppy including the system kernel and SafeGuard Easy emergency files.

How to create a bootable emergency CD
Nowadays, mobile devices like notebooks no longer have floppy devices. For this reason we have also made it possible for you to start SafeGuard Easy from a CD in case of emergency.

- Save the boot image file (Boot.iso) to the hard disk and use any commercially-available CD burner to save the file to CD (option "create CD from image" or similar). The ISO file contains the entire boot floppy , as it was created by the Emergency Disk Wizard, apart from the system kernel backup.

How to create a bootable emergency USB memory stick
The USB stick must be bootable on your system. It depends on your workstation's BIOS support if an emergency boot from USB memory stick can be performed successfully.

- Make the memory stick bootable.
- Copy the SafeGuard Easy emergency files into your memory stick.
- Run SGEasy.exe

In this constellation the SafeGuard Easy emergency tools booted from USB stick can only be used to perform an emergency uninstallation of the system. In case you want to perform a repair or restore of the SafeGuard Easy kernel, we recommend to use one of the abvove mentioned media (CD or floppy).
