Kaspersky Rescue Disk can be launched via a PXE network (Preboot Execution Environment). In this case you do not need local data storages: hard drives or USB drives.

To launch Kaspersky Rescue Disk via network:

  1. Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk image.
  2. Create the /pxeboot/krd folder on a server and extract the downloaded krd.iso image into this folder.
  3. Set up DHCP and TFTP servers.
    An example of dnsmasq configuration for DHCP and TFTP servers in the /etc/dnsmasq.conf file:
#port=0
#DNS on/off
log-dhcp
dhcp-range=192.168.85.0,192.168.85.150,255.255.255.0,12h
dhcp-option=option:router,192.168.85.1
enable-tftp
tftp-root=/pxeboot
  1. Set up an NFS or HTTP server.
    An example of nfs-kernel-server configuration for an NFS server in the /etc/exports file:
/pxeboot/
192.168.85.1/255.255.255.0(rw,no_subtree_check,all_squash,insecure,anonuid=1000,anongid=1000)
  1. Load Kaspersky Rescue Disk using one of the following boot loaders:
    • GRUB. See the guide below.
    • SYSLINUX. See the guide below.
    • iPXE. See the guide below.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk will launch.

We recommend GRUB boot loader which is included in Kaspersky Rescue Disk. If you choose a different boot loader, you will need to install and configure it manually.
