Minimum requirements

ESET SysRescue works in the Microsoft Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) version 2.x, which is based on Windows Vista.

Windows PE is a part of the free package Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK), and therefore Windows AIK must be installed before creating ESET SysRescue (http://go.eset.eu/AIK). Due to the support of the 32-bit version of Windows PE, it is necessary to use a 32-bit installation package of ESET Security solution when creating ESET SysRescue on 64-bit systems. ESET SysRescue supports Windows AIK 1.1 and higher.

NOTE: Since Windows AIK is over 1 GB in size, a high-speed internet connection is required for smooth download.

ESET SysRescue is available in ESET Security solutions version 4.0 and higher.
