    It's a limitation of Kaspersk Rescue Disk, it won't boot from NTFS.

    I encourage people to customize MediCat to their liking, so I'm happy you made it look how you wanted. :)

    I didn't know this. I think I'll try MediCat Second Opinion on a FAT32 USB, and see if that solves the problematic CDs not booting up.

    Merci beaucoup pour la mise à jour.
    Je prendrai le temps de la regarder

    Question, j'ai tenté de la mettre à jour en faisant un vulgaire copié-collé des fichiers dans l'espoir de ne pas modifier ma configuration existante sur la clé.
    Bn je n'ai pas cherché plus mais ça n'a pas l'air de fonctionner.

    Vous confirmez qu'il faut tout réinstaller sur la clé, n'est-ce pas?

    Encore merci beaucoup d'exister ;-)

    Disable your antivirus and try again.

    Désactivez votre antivirus et réessayez.

    I added KRD of Medicat Second Opinion (v.18.0.11.0) to Medicat USB and it works well

    Was this via NTFS? My systems would both hang with a kernel panic in the same place. I am going to test it again via FAT32 and see if that works better.

    Medicat USB is superbly made on NTFS, so yes, it was

    Okay.

    I tried all the problematic ISOs again with FAT32, with and without Memdisk to help, and nothing changed for me, so the Panda CDs, Trinity, and F-Secure discs will not be going onto it. They all hang and crash mid-boot, no matter the settings I use.

    Hello! I am from Germany.I hope, You can understand my bad "English" I have 2 PCs with Win10 Pro 64 running. The first PC(No UEFI) has a 64 GB Stick with the new version of Medicat. Everything is ok! Now i made a second Medicat stick on the 2. PC(No UEFI) with ventoy2disk on a 125GB Stick. Everything ok but: Here I have only a " Ventoy2disk menue" and not the "Medicat menue" Thank You! Happy X-mas and stay healthy!

    Your English is fine. Sounds like the 2nd stick didn't get everything transferred to it. You can always copy the files from the first stick to the second stick, and have them exactly the same. That should fix it.

    In the first picture of the instructions, you see where it says MBR? Well try GPT instead, and see if that works for you. Some UEFI only accept a GUID Partition Table, like many newer Macs do.

    I would remake the USB with FAT32 and see if that helps. Also, make sure you boot this in BIOS mode (red menu) with Secure Boot off. Most of these discs haven't been updated by their makers in YEARS, and fail to support new hardware or even UEFI, which is sad.

    Hello, I tried to install Medicat on a USB device 32GB but when I used Ventoy, after the two "Yes" answers, there is an error message telling me the install failed and the USB device "disapeared" (I am conscious it was to erase the data but the only thing I can think of that created the error can be because I didn't desactivate the "real time scan" before doing the install, I didn't find where to go), now I am worried the USB device may be unusable... Any idea how to repair the damages? I must precise that the USB device is still detected but it doen't appear in the computer storage.

    Hello everybody,

    I wanted to ask whether it is possible to convert Medicat from a USB stick to an ICO so that it can be used on an IODD. The advantages of this would be that the IODD can be used as a DVD. The second would be that my colleagues are already used to the IODD devices.
