Hello friends. Over the last 2 days I have downloaded and burned 3 AV Boot CDs. Bitdefender, Kaspersky, and Dr. Web. They all load fine and all. However, I can’t seem to figure out why they won’t update.
My PC is hooked up to the web and works fine in normal mode. When I place any Boot CD in, it loads fine but detects NO internet connection. I am then forced to run a scan with Very OLD definitions.
I don’t see any options where I can get these CDs to somehow link to my connection.
I have an Acer with AMD Processor. What do I do to get these Linux based AV CDs to access my connection while in the bootable environment. What am I not doing!!!
If ANY of you have ever used either of these Boot CDs, please tell me what to do.
have you concidered a cd/rw (reuse it over and over) possibly or maybe even a memory stick
I don't see any options where I can get these CDs to somehow link to my connection.
I'm not sure what you mean, but I'll try
- Restart the computer
- the second you restart the computer, keep hitting the “F8” key until a new screen comes up
- hopefully 1 of the options will let you run the cd or dvd
Jay2007Tech: Thats not what I meant. ALL Boot CDs I have made burned perfectly and Boot perfectly and work perfectly. They all take me to the bootable environment exactly as they are supposed to.
The only problem is when I access the UPDATE VIRUS DEFINITIONS part of any of the boot cds, they don’t detect an IP Address or any way to access the web. I try to launch the browser and again, no internet connection. What do I do to get a boot cd to find my internet connection! Its always on. Works great in normal and safe mode. Just not in a Linux bootabe environment. Do I have to alter my DNS in Normal Mode to have it detected in the bootable environmrent? How do I solve this problem?

For each of the boot disks, why don't you ask in those forums
(like kaspersky forums).
Hello again. I think I have solved this problem. My Network Card was not turned on. I shall turn it on and try again.
UPDATE: Gentlemen, I have FINALLY discovered the reason why NONE of my boot cds will detect an internet connection and update. It is because I have WIFI! Languy99 I believe, tipped me off to the fact that you must have a LAN connection in order to be able to update boot cds in the bootable environment.
Linux doesn’t yet have the drivers for wifi. Well, at least I know. Hafta either get a wired connection or find someone who has one. I can’t believe Linux doesn’t offer a driver for wifi. Sux.
