    BitDefender Rescue CD

    I've not yet installed BitDefender Internet Security v10, but I thought that I'd try booting from the Resuce CD.

    At the end of the boot, I get a message something like:

    "Can't find Knoppix filesystem sorry, Dropped you to a (very limited) shell. Press Reset button to quit."

    Message is followed by a list of a few commands like cat and mount, the the following prompt:

    knoppix#

    1. What is the "Reset button". CTRL ALT DEL does cause a reboot.
    2. There's nothing in the BD user guide docummenting commands for knoppix.
    Is the user supposed to learn knoppix to use the rescue cd?
    3. Why is there no, even crude GUI?
    4. How can the file system not be found, heck it is booting from the CD?

    Hi Howard,

    I believe the answers to your questions can be found here.

    I also believe that Knoppix is a Linux based system and that is why you are not seeing the usual system files like in Windows.

    Perhaps you need to install the product before using the rescue cd.

    Have you decided to throw away all those stockpiled copies of Symantec in favor of a new security application?

    Regards, Bob

    <hr>I believe the answers to your questions can be found here.<hr>

    Alas, I and someone else had already search there. No info to be found relevant to the issue

    I found a workaround.

    1. Copied the CD to CD-RW.
    2. Used the following program, choosing a 32MB buffer, to compare the CD with the CD-RW, and the CD-RW with the CD. CompareDrives

    Indicated that there are 155 files.
    It took quite some time for the CompareDrivesUsingFileContent program to process the 144th file.

    3. Booted with the CD-RW.

    4. Reset did not reboot, had to power down.

    5. There were icons to my USB drives, but none to the hardrives.

    There was one link that had a hodgepodge of stuff, perhaps it contained a link to My Computer. Very poor interface.

    Still cannot boot with the original CD.

    I again booted today.
    Noticed that tghe boot is not properly handling all drives.

    All logical drives are NTFS, except for C, which is FAT 32.

    Boot indicates errors on a bunch of SCSI drives.

    The boot CD has to work without the product being installed.

    No.
