Advanced settings

The Advanced tab lets you optimize the ESET SysRescue CD according to the amount of memory on your computer. Select 512 MB and more to write the content of the CD to the operating memory (RAM). If you select less than 512 MB, the recovery CD will be permanently accessed when WinPE will be running.


External drivers – in this section you can insert drivers for your specific hardware (usually network adapter). Although WinPE is based on Windows Vista SP1 which supports a wide array of hardware, sometimes hardware is not recognized and you need to add the driver manually. There are two ways to introduce the driver into ESET SysRescue compilation - manually (the Add button) and automatically (the Aut. Search button). In the case of manual introduction, you need to select the path to the corresponding .inf file (applicable *.sys file must also be present in this folder). In the case of automatic introduction, the driver is found automatically in the operating system of the given computer. We recommend using automatic introduction only if ESET SysRescue is used on a computer that has the same network adapter as the computer on which the ESET SysRescue CD was created. When the ESET SysRescue CD is created the driver is included in compilation so the user does not need to find it later.
