Hello,

unfortunatley, Support (Live-Chat) could not help me, as they do not support Internet Security / Rescue Disk.

I use Kaspersky Internet Security.
Maybe you can help me, I have created a Rescue USB Stick, I can see the menu to choose between graphics Mode and a Limited graphics mode.
Then, after I try to load the graphics (or) limited graphics, the system freeze.

I have attached the output of the linux boot messages.

As far as I know, rescue disk is based on Gentoo Linux, i can boot the Gentoo Live-CD / System without problems, as well as Ubuntu.

But, i can't boot Debian except i use the nonfree-firmware Image.

Is there a way to use a working Image with Kaspersky AV ?
As example Gentoo (with all drivers) or Debian nonfree-firmware & Kaspersky?



Mainboard:
AsRock Z390 Pro4

Thank you!

Kind regard,
bern

Hello @bern,
Welcome!
Are you having issues with Kaspersky Rescue Disk 18?
If "yes" have you checked the How to & What to do if graphic mode doesn’t work when starting Kaspersky Rescue Disk 18?
Please post back?
Thank you.

Dear Flood,

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, i have checked the How To and "What to do if" page.
The problem is, the result is the same.

What i mean:
If i select Hardware Information, then the system freeze again, i do not see the Hardware Information via GUI, i cant even save the files, the last thing i see are the console messages (file attached in this reply).

If i use the trace mode, it stops working (freeze) with the same message of my first posting (EDD information not available etc).

I thing it's something with mainboard / intel driver cause i had the same problems with a Debian Boot Disk til i used the nonfree-firmware image.

That was one of the reason why i changed to Kaspersky (cause Gentoo did work).



Thank you for your time.

Kind regards

Hello @bern,
Thank you for replying and the extra information.
I've asked the Moderators to move your topic to Kaspersky Rescue Disk, for a better possibility of finding a solution.
Also, is the process generating any logs, if "yes", upload to cloud and post the link or, if they're <25mb, upload to your post using the Upload icon, that way the folks with KRD expertise will have data to interrogate.
Thank you.

Dear Flood,

again thanks for your reply and my apologies, i did not see the Topic KRD before.

There no further logs at the moment, all i have are the screens but i will
provide all informations you need at request.
I could provide a Hardware Information of "HW Info" or MSInfo if it helps.

Kind regards,
bern

Hello @bern,
No need to apologise, it's not a problem.
The reason to move this topic is, the people who have the most KRD knowledge will see the topic and hopefully have an answer to the issues.
And now the Moderators have kindly moved the topic so, that's good.
The (data) info have may help so, yes, please, upload whatever you can please?
Unfortunately, I cannot solve the dilemma, I'm sorry, I don't know the answer.
It may also help to provide some history, for example, the reason for using KRD?
All the best🙏🏽.

At the moment, there is no reason for using KRD, so the good news are - it's not important.
But i just want to be sure, everything is working in worst case (if i need KRD).

Hello @bern,
  • I'm glad to hear DR isn't necessary. May I ask, do you have any AV software installed?
  • There's a few Community Members (I've seen reply to KRD posts) who are specialists, or at least know a heap more about KRD than I do, hopefully, they'll see your post & pitch in. I'll be looking to see as well, I'd like to know what the issue is🤔.
Best regards

Hello Flood,

Thanks for your reply.

At the moment i have installed Kaspersky Internet Security (latest version), but no other AV Software.

Two weeks ago i had G-Data Internet Security, and the same problem with Rescue Medium.
Their Rescue Medium was based on Debian.

I just found out, that i had to create a Debian nonfree-firmware Boot Image (USB) to get a working solution but without AV Software.

The abo was running out, so it was a good possibility for me to change the Internet Security Software (to Kaspersky).
I did checked the Gentoo Live-CD to be sure that KRD works but for any unkown reason, Gentoo Live-CD works but not KRD (base on Gentoo).

Kind regards,
bern

Hello @bern,
I'm glad you have AV installed and even "more " glad it's Kaspersky😉
Have you tried any other "method" of creating KRD🤔?

I tried it with the image of:
https://support.kaspersky.com/de/14227?cid=KIS_20.0&utm_source=interceptor&utm_medium=product&utm_campaign=KIS_20.0


a.) I used Rufus to create the KRD
b.) I used "Etcher" (with my virtual linux box)
c.) And i tried it with WinUSB

With the same result.

Kind regards,

Hello @bern,
Please try Kaspersky Rescue Disk 18
Thank you.

Hello,

 

Thank you!

 

I see, the Image has a difference of about 1 MB (compared to the other image of https://support.kaspersky.com/de/14227?cid=KIS_20.0&utm_source=interceptor&utm_medium=product&utm_campaign=KIS_20.0 ).

 

Unfortunatley, the same problem happens again.

There is just a difference when the system freezes, this time it ends after AHCI.

Image attached.

I tried it aswell with the solutions above (Graphic Limited, Hardware Information etc)

Hello @bern,

Have you tried Windows builtin utility "isoburn /Q path_to_iso" ?

(Also) I’m “hoping” the KRD gurus pitch in:thinking:

Hello,

 

yes (i did try it), but same result.

Do you know, has Kaspersky any Linux client files of Kaspersky AV ?

In this case i just would create a working boot image (Gentoo Live-CD) and i would just add the files manually to the image instead of userng the non working image (for me) of KRD.

 

Kind regards

Hi,@bern!

Thank your for report. I need some details about hang on boot:

 

I have created a Rescue USB Stick

 

Did you use USB3 or USB2 flash drive? Did you try to write KRD on different USD Flash Drives and try to load it on this computer?

 

i can boot the Gentoo Live-CD

 

Did you use fresh Gentoo live cd?

 

But, i can't boot Debian except i use the nonfree-firmware Image.

I thing it's something with mainboard / intel driver cause i had the same problems with a Debian Boot Disk til i used the nonfree-firmware image.

 

Debian without nonfree-firmware hangs on boot too or has other problems?

 

Hardware Specs:
Motherboard Model:ASRock Z390 Pro4
Motherboard Chipset:Intel Z390 (Cannon Lake-H)

CPU:
Processor Name:Intel Core i9-9900K
CPU Platform:Socket H4 (LGA1151)

 

Do you use BIOS RAID feature?

 

According to motherboard manual you can swicth some options for USB (page 84):

Please, try to change selected options and try to boot KRD.

Hello,

 

Thanks for your reply.

>Did you use USB3 or USB2 flash drive? Did you try to write KRD on different USD Flash Drives and >try to load it on this computer?

 

I did try it with an old USB2 and a CD-RW.

>Did you use fresh Gentoo live cd?

 

I did use Hybrid ISO (https://bouncer.gentoo.org/fetch/gentoo-20160704-livedvd/amd64/)

LiveDVD but i created the image onto a USB Stick with Rufus.

Worked fine, and the strange thing is, looks like its a Version of 2016.

Means i did use the Live-DVD like an normal OS.

 

>Debian without nonfree-firmware hangs on boot too or has other problems?

Yes, hangs on boot similar behavior just with a different error, there was just one line

“[2.332949] failed to find cpu0 device node”

 

>Do you use BIOS RAID feature?

No, 1 SSD, 1 HD but no Raid feature enabled.

 

The settings of the screenshots were default execpt the XHCI Handoff, i changed it but same error.

I also did try to change the Legacy Mode with the result that i had to reset the BIOS to default (cause he didn’t detect my Keyboard anymore).

 

Kind regards

Ok, thanks for testing! So, we know that the problem is in firmware, but we don’t know which one…

Please, create USB Flash drives with Gentoo and Debian with nonfree-firmware, boot it, open console terminal and enter following commands:

dmesg > ./dmesg.log
lsmod > ./lsmod.log
lspci -vvv > ./lspci.log
cat /proc/cpuinfo > ./cpuinfo.log
tar -cavf ./info.tar.gz ./dmesg.log ./lsmod.log ./lspci.log ./cpuinfo.log

and attach collected info.tar.gz archives to this topic. I’ll try to find that firmware.

Hello Andrey,

 

sorry, i didn’t notice your reply.

I have attached the .tar.gz file (logs) of Debian nonfree-firmware Live Image.
I had to compress the tar.gz as zip, cause .tar.gz is a non supported file format by community upload.

@bern, thank you for archive! I’ll try to find this bad firmware.
