Special Information

SystemRescueCD is an operating system for the x86 computer platform, though the primary purpose of SystemRescueCD is to repair unbootable or otherwise damaged computer systems after a system crash.

SystemRescueCD is not intended to be used as a permanent operating system.

It runs from a Live CD or a USB flash drive. It was designed by a team led by François Dupoux, and is based on the Gentoo Linux distribution.
