    .EDIT: What is the error you're getting?

    Ok.
    I tried to install it to USB a second time - same results. I get "boot error" in the dos screen, when manually selecting to boot from there.

    My first boot priority is a removable drive, but it isn't going there on its own.

    I don't understand why you can boot to Kyhi's rescue media on the USB stick and not this one....doesn't make sense to me....but maybe one of the other ones will succeed.

    EDIT: Perhaps switching to Legacy mode/turning off Fast Boot (if it even exists) in the BIOS will help?

    Ok, running the exe as an admin did the trick.
    I'm currently running the disk recover

    Okay, not sure I understand this - how can you run an exe file as admin when you're booting to a rescue environment?

    Sorry, it's the exe that installs everything to the USB.

    Which rescue media are you working with now, which gave you an error? Will it run without the update?

    I'm now in Kaspersky 10. Rescue disk wouldn't open on second power up so I'm trying again.

    Edit: rescue disk won't open, maybe the incomplete update messed it up. I may have to create the USB again?
