Hirens updating kaspersky
A full install of Linux Mint on a hard disk only takes about 5gb of disk space, although it also needs swap space equal to the amount of ram in your system.A 16gb USB would probably be the minimum for a proper install on a stick.
There is also a Rescue Boot disk on the Windows10 forum with many tools.Read lots of posts on this very same problem, so far, no real good answer that I have found, but lots of folks are asking what is this password that Linux put in.I found a way to get out.......I am writing down your way too......Hope my ramble helps Ultimate Boot CD is good for linux specific utilities such as ddrescue.Parted Magic is good as it has the latest linux tools but it costs $11.I've found DD image mode best for Linux ISO's and ISO image mode best for Windows ISO's.
If one doesn't work or boot, re-create the bootable USB with the other option. Downloaded Mint 17.2 and now have a bootable stick. I'm thinking that would be really flexible - saving settings, adding apps, etc.
File System: Select "FAT32 (Default)" Cluster size: Select "4096 bytes (Default)" New volume label: Optional - fill in label name if desired Format Options: Select "1 Pass" [ ] Check device for bad blocks (I don't check this option) [X] Quick format [X] Create a bootable disk using "ISO image" [X} Create extended label and icon files Click START.
If Rufus asks: Please select the mode that you want to use to write this image: ( ) Write in ISO image mode (Recommended) (x) Write in DD image mode Select DD image mode and then select OK. Rufus 2.2 and below doesn't ask or give these options, but works okay anyway.
Ok I got one for you on Linux Mint, I made the recovery disk, like you showed the other user, booted to Linux, looked around at some of the features, then logged off, it took me to a locked screen, and if I tried to re-enter back to the desktop, it asked me for my password??? I did see under accounts that their was a place to enter info for a user, everything was blank, no name, no pic, BUT under password, their were 5 ***** According to documentation, a Live CD (or USB) default user and password should be...
mint (for user) leave blank and just press Enter (for password) That didn't work for me, either. If you pressed the Logout button and pressed the Switch User button, you are in limbo. To get out of the Login Screen and reboot: Press CTRL-ALT-F1 to go to a terminal window.

The password looks like it is 6 figures, tried a few already. Linux should not be setting its own PW, that just don't make sense.
Hiren’s Boot CD PE x64 is the one I chose after reading all the material.
