Add the Norman Rescue and Antivirus ISO to E2B (with persistence)

The XUbuntu-based Norman Rescue Disk ISO file (English+German supported) can be downloaded and added to your E2B USB drive (you can supply any junk email address to get the download).

However, when it first boots from the ISO file, it will download over 170MB of updates and virus definitions.


Norman includes a virus scanner, gparted and FireFox.

If you want the updates to be stored persistently on the E2B drive and you also want 64-bit Secure booting or non-Secure booting as well as MBR booting, simply drag-and-drop the ISO file onto the MPI FAT32 Desktop shortcut to make a .imgPTN file, but you must add approx. 200MB for the persistence files (if you don't do this then the update process will fail) and then copy the .imgPTN file onto your E2B USB drive (e.g. \_ISO\ANTIVIRUS folder).
