You can download SystemRescue immediately from this page. It is highly recommended to use the 64bit version (amd64) but a 32bit version (i686) is also available.
|Release||systemrescue-8.05 for amd64||systemrescue-8.04 for i686|
|Download size||753 MiB||722 MiB|
To confirm that the download was successful, you should download the checksum files and then run verification commands such as the following ones:
sha256sum --check systemrescue-x.y.z.iso.sha256 sha512sum --check systemrescue-x.y.z.iso.sha512
These command will recalculate the checksum on the downloaded file, and compare it with the expected checksums. These checksum programs are part of coreutils on Linux and should be pre-installed with most distributions.
You can download sha256sum.exe for windows, and you can run the command from a cmd.exe terminal.
You can also verify the signature of the ISO image using GnuPG. The signature is located in the ASC file named after the ISO image that you can get from the main download links at the top of this page. You will also need the public signing key.
gpg --import gnupg-pubkey.txt gpg --verify systemrescue-x.y.z.iso.asc systemrescue-x.y.z.iso
Various issues can cause SystemRescue to hangs or fail with unexpected errors during the boot process. Please do not report these as bugs unless you have verified the frequent causes of these issues:
On Linux you can use either command line tools such as cdrecord/wodim or graphical tools such as k3b, brasero or xfburn.
