Booting Rescue Disk WITHOUT HDD installed

hello. First time using Kaspersky Rescue Disk. First time trying to rescue a computer period.

The trouble i’m having is this…

I have a lenovo b570 laptop. It would not access bios or boot from usb/cd/dvd. I removed the hdd, and it booted right into kaspersky rescue disk. So, as i’m following suggestions, i attempt to run the update before a system scan, and it of course does not have a disk drive to use.

So, my curiosity has me questioning whether or not to place the hdd back into it’s spot and see if it picks up on it?


is that a big no-no?

I’m tech savy enough to feel confident in myself in following some direction on what to do, so long as it’s nothing like the blind leading the blind. :wink:

Should i need to get additional information on here, Please advise.

Thank you,

As described in Lenovo B570 manual at page 26 to enter BIOS you need:

Note:To enter BIOS setup utility, press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.

Then you need to change boot priority to USB\CD-ROM to boot from KRD.
