Virus Infection and Booting from the CD-Drive
Posted on 1998-08-05
i'm new to mac's, i bought a used PowerPC about 1 week ago, it is infected with the
nVIR.A virus, i'm running MacOS 8. i can clean all the infected files except the SYSTEM
and the FINDER files because 'they are in use'. To clean them i'd have to boot from
either a bootable floppy or from the cd-drive.
1) how can i make a floppy disk bootable? i found only one program which allows me
to erase a disk, but there are no options to make a floppy bootable!??
2) how can i boot from the MacOS 8 cd-rom (or from boot able CD's in general)?
in the documentation it tells me that i have to hold down the C key after i turned on
the computer, but it doesn't work, it always boots from the hard disk drive!??
