Hello all - I just want to share this information with you.  It worked for me, but no guarantees...

We have a couple of older P4 systems (XP SP3 32-bit) with the Intel 865PE chipset and ICH5 controller.   We couldn't boot from the SERT CD on these systems - got a boot error 5 - probably has something to do with the older chipset and WinPE.

So, here's what we did to boot from a USB memory stick

First follow the instructions in TECH131578 -

Symantec keeps tab on the changing Threat Landscape and incorporates relevant security on its products.Same is the story with SAV to SEP to now SEP 12..

When we had SAV in the market what our customer needed was just a Antivirus to protect their system from downtime..here antivirus was looked more as a Availability facilitator than a core security product..till early 2000.

Even though we had SCS (firewall and IPS) seclected people used the other features.

Starting from 2006-2007 that was a high rise in malware being created and vulnerabilities being exploited..slowly the trend changed and it all came down to money making malwares..

FakeAntivirus, Downadup, Various Blackmailing Trojans etc..here the audience was not high profile..and SEP 11 very well detect and blocks and does whatever it can..Slowly people started using IPS, ADC and found much more can be done with SEP and they are doing it..

However in last few years there has been targetted...

I. BACKGROUND:
In mid-2009, W32.Changeup, was first discovered on systems around the world. Over the last few years, Symantec Security Response has profiled this threat, explained why it spreads, and shown how it was created.  Since November 2012 we have seen weekly spikes the number of W32.Changeup detections and infections. The increase in detections is a result of a renewed W32.Changeup campaign now active and in-the-wild.

II. THREAT DETAILS:
When a system is compromised, W32.Changeup may install additional malware. These secondary threats have the ability to download even more malware...
