How to add the AVG Anti Virus Rescue CD to your Multiboot USB Flash Drive

Recently AVG.com released a run from cd version of their popular free anti-virus program. They call it a rescue CD.

Here at USERBYTES we have grown tired of CD’s for a long time now. They often get scratched and I found that I have to keep up with way to many of them. All our readers here prefer the USB flashdrive method with lots of utilities on it.

For those that are familiar with this project and you now want to add AVG to your drive, its really simple.

First download the version for USB flash drives here. Download Rescue CD (for USB stick) it will be in .rar format so you will need winrar or 7zip to extract it.

WINRAR Download
7zip Download

Once it is downloaded, extract it and put the contents in a folder that you will create on the root of the USB flash drive called AVG

Now add this code to your menu.lst file on your multi-boot usb flash drive.

title AVG Anti-Virus
root (hd0,0)
kernel /AVG/vmlinuz persistent vga=0x317 ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw quiet
initrd=/AVG/initrd.lzm
boot

That’s all there is too it.
