Rescue Disk doesn't boot. Stuck on black screen with underscore.

Recommended Posts

I just download the last Kaspersky Rescue Disk version and made a bootable USB stick using Rufus (following the site instructions).
After rebooting the computer and selecting the USB stick as the boot option, I get stuck on a console (black screen with just an underscore). I don't get to see any Kaspersky logo or menu. If I remove the stick, the Windows OS starts as usual.

Any ideas on why this is happening and how to fix it?

Computer: ASUS ROG STRIX G512

I have the same issue with new NUC11 as you can see below in the forum, and I really hope we get an answer from Kaspersky soon.

If I get a reply in my thread I will also let you know if this one. 

If you could look at your hardware, and see if anything is identical to the hardware in my NUC11´s?

burn on a USB linux mint and download Kaspersky virus removal tool 2015 and put in the USB, then install in Linux using PlaywithLinux, the using this app, run Kaspersky.
