It seems that some people have experienced problems with Rescue CD not mounting NTFS partitions for scanning.
The Best solution in this case is to detach the network cable or disable wireless and boot the Windows preferably into safe mode by removing the CD and pressing
F8 in boot sequence and selecting “Safe Mode”. After Windows has booted, select shutdown. After machine has turned itself off, attach/enable network and boot into Rescue CD.
However, if your computer is so badly infected that booting to Windows will not work or it gets hung up till infinity and beyond, you might be able to mount the problematic partitions for scanning with following procedure.
Alt-F2 and into command prompt type
root!tty2:/# grep scan /tmp/mount_error_details.txt
You should get the commands that you can try to use for mounting dirty NTFS partitions.
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/scan/hda1 -oforce
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda5 /mnt/scan/hda5 -oforce
df command you can verify if the mount succeeded and also check the partition information (how big it is and how much of it is used/free)
After you have verified that the partition you wish to scan is mounted, press
Alt-F1 and press
enter to verify next and continue with scanning process.
The workaround is a bit complicated, I know. We will try to fix the issue in the next version of Rescue CD.
