B0-WARNING: System may contain a virus!

Postby mwtbbm » Sun Aug 07, 2016 12:33 pm

Hi,

I'm getting this message when I boot my Thinkpad T60. It appears before the Bootit BM user interface is brought up.
Full message:

BootIt EMBRI 4.00
BootIt EMBRL 4.00
B0-WARNING: System may contain a virus!
Press <enter> to continue.

The closest thing that I found in the forum is this:
https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/ucf/v ... ning#p1258
But this thread refers to an "02-WARNING" (mine is "B0-WARNING") and the user's subsequent question has not been answered.

The manual doesn't mention this type of error.

My question: Where did Bootit BM detect a potential virus? Is it on my HDD or in the BIOS?

Thanks in advance,
Michael

I had one of the TB products identified an a virus years ago.
I sent a message to the AV program. It was soon fixed.

it's saying int b0h is pointing somewhere other than normal bios area. but
being b0h, probably nothing, you can disable the check in settings.
