Here is how it's working for mine:

1. Create empty file liveusb in root USB drive
2. Download kav*.iso and rename to rescue.iso http://devbuilds.kas...s/RescueDisk10/
3. Create folder "rescue" and put "rescue.iso" into it.
4. Copy the file "rescue.iso" to "rescueusb.iso".
5. Open the "rescueusb.iso" with ultraiso.
6. Delete everything, except the boot folder, from the rescueusb.iso image.
7. Save changes.
8. Copy the "rescueusb.iso" file to the USB drive in the "rescue" folder
9. Modify the grub menu:

title Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
map /rescue/rescueusb.iso (0xff) || map --mem /rescue/rescueusb.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)

The load process is much faster with this method.
tested with MultiBootISOs.exe from http://www.pendrivel...-multiboot-usb/

Theres no need to create "rescueusb.iso" seperately.
"rescue.iso" is sufficient.

I *guess* the point was:

at first sight mapping with grub4dos a very small .iso will make it boot much faster. :cheers:

By mapping iso file to (0xff) , you can boot only kernel(rescue) and initrd(rescue.igz) file only , rest of the files cannot be accessed by linux kernel.
By default kaspersky looks for an iso file with name "rescue.iso" inside the "rescue" folder on the drive which have "liveusb" file on it.
And use the latest version of kaspersky. older version don't work by this method.

thank u for the reply. shame on me, the explanation u'll find in the grub4dos helpfile, just let me quote for the next one, who will ask :cheers:
The "map" process is implemented using INT 13 - any disk emulation will remain accessible from an OS that uses compatible mode disk access, e.g. DOS and Windows 9x. The emulation can't however, be accessed from an OS which uses protected mode drivers (Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista, Linux, FreeBSD) once the protected mode kernel file(s) take control.
