Step to Create Shardana Antivirus Rescue CD:

1. Download the latest version of SARDU and extract SARDU zip files to a new folder. Then you can find sardu.exe on the new folder.

2. Once activate Sardu.exe, you will notice presence of four product categories: Antivirus, Utilities, Linux, and PE. Each category has its own form with their buttons that lead to the page to download the software includes on the bootable disc. Then your default web browser will open with the link to download the latest ISO. Then save the file to the ISO folder where sardu.exe is located.

3. When you’ve finished downloading the ISO files, close sardu.exe and reopen sardu.exe. You will notice that SARDU has automatically put a check on the checkbox if the ISO image is found. If the checkbox is grayed out even though you think you’ve downloaded the file, then most likely you’ve downloaded the wrong one. The file has to be in ISO format, not ZIP or EXE.

4. You can either click on the “Crea ISO” button to compile all the ISO images into a single ISO to burn it to a DVD using ISO image burning software or click the “Crea USB avviabile” button to install it to your USB flash drive.

5. When you have your SARDU USB flash drive or DVD ready, boot it up and you should get a multiboot screen like the image below.

    What is a bootable rescue disc? Has it anything to do with data backups after computer crash? How much is it effactive for Servers?

  • Viktor

    While I am very safe and cautious online and stay relatively virus free because of it, I think there is a great value in these bootable AV checks. Some bugs just hide too deep in the code to be seen by all but the highest quality antivirus software. In those cases, these boot checks are very valuable.
