The venerable SystemRescueCd has been used for years to repair unbootable and damaged computers with the x86-64 architecture. SystemRescueCd is based on Arch Linux with a systemd init system and GPLv3 license. It supports numerous filesystems (e.g., ext3/ext4, XFS, Btrfs, ReiserFS, JFS, VFAT, NTFS), including network filesystems such as Samba and NFS. The new version 6.0.3 is updated to Linux kernel 4.19.34 with long-term support and has added packages growpart, which extends a partition in a partition table to fill available space, and grsync, a graphical front end to rsync that makes it easy to manage your rsync configuration.
