ESET SysRescue (ESR) 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 ESR. Due to the support of the 32-bit version of Windows PE, it is necessary to use a 32-bit ESS/EAV installation package when creating ESR on 64-bit systems. ESR supports Windows AIK 1.1 and higher. ESR is available in ESS/EAV 4.0 and higher.
Supported operating systems:
- Windows Vista
- Windows Vista Service Pack 1
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 with KB926044
- Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2
