I burned the ISO to CD but the operating system on it would not boot.  It progressed no further than the display of four pale blue panes in square formation then hung.

@Andrey,pro
Sorry but your answer isn't acceptable.
This is something that needs input from Avast.
It is a function offered in avast! and should not require that we go through hoops
in order to complete a simple task of creating a recovery media.
If it doesn't work and can't be fixed, then it should be removed.
It's working fine for me... I asked about EventLog.log because it can be useful for avast team (I think you can find an error code in this file).

windows 7 Starter edition, 32 bit
Once I get back home, (End of this month) I'll try a creation of a Rescue DVD on a windows 8.1.1 32 bit system.
I know creation on a 64 bit Windows 8.1.1 does not work.

I have read several of the messages from users who are having a problem similar to mine. I'm not happy with all the answers given as they assume the users know what the person giving the answer  is talking about. Why can't people be more specific as to folder locations and show that they really are reading the message before responding.

I too am unable to create a Rescue Disc on either a USB drive or a CD. I get the message that the creation failed but there is no explanation as to why it failed. I have looked at the log file specified and the entry there is so short and contains codes that mean nothing to the user. Avast needs to respond to this problem with more information as well as a fix to the problem if necessary.

Already fixed in the beta versions.

If people are unwilling to use a beta version on their system - if I remember rightly, I believe disabling the avast self-defence module before starting the rescue disk creation is a workaround.

Confirmed Dave, it should help as a workaround until the next final release.
