Put System Rescue CD on USB using Windows

System Rescue CD is a Linux-based live system that is designed to provide a variety of tools for repairing and recovering computer systems. It is commonly used to troubleshoot and repair computer systems that are experiencing problems with their operating system, file system, or hardware components.

The System Rescue CD includes a range of system tools such as disk management utilities, file system tools, network tools, and system administration tools. It also includes several data recovery tools that can be used to recover data from damaged or corrupted hard drives or partitions. Tools such as GNU Parted, GParted, Partimage, ddrescue, FSArchiver, File system tools, NTFS-3g, sfdisk, Test-disk, memtest, network tools.

One of the key advantages of this utility is that it is a bootable CD, DVD, or USB drive, which means that it can be used to boot a computer directly from the CD, DVD, or USB drive without the need for an installed operating system. This makes it an ideal tool for repairing or recovering systems that have been damaged or corrupted in some way.

The System Rescue CD is open-source software and can be downloaded for free from the project’s website. It is regularly updated with new features and bug fixes, and there is an active community of users and developers who contribute to the project.

The following process outlines one way to quickly create your very own System Rescue USB from the ISO using Windows and YUMI to complete the task.
