Recently, a question similar to this was asked here: When will Eset provide instructions (or better yet, an actual kit) for creating a bootable CD capable of allowing NOD32 to scan and clean systems? The answer provided stated that there are indeed plans to provide such a thing, but no time frame was given because of other priorities. This is a valid answer, if not the one most people wanted to hear. So, I've created this thread for you all to explore any technical alternatives that exist today, that would allow people to create such a thing for themselves. This is assuming it is even possible given the complexities, the most limiting of which is probably the need to support NTFS drives from outside the NT-based Windows operating systems. On topic posts include any thoughts and ideas regarding how to build such a thing. Of course, we need to stay completely legal, as well, meaning no cracked NTFS drivers or such. Off topic posts include such things as merely posting complaints that Eset hasn't already provided such a thing. We've explored that already and we know people are not happy about it. Also off topic would be recommendations to use/buy some other AV package. Let's just see if there are real alternatives for making bootable media that provides an environment capable of running a NOD32 based scanner, which isn't too complicated to put together or expensive to make. This may not even be practical, but let's find out.
