See here for more details. The full version has 30+ more apps and utilities!

Only Dr Webb and Kaspersky are UEFI64-bootable in both versions of the ISOs but you will need to convert the ISO to a .imgPTN23 file for UEFI64 booting. The ISO does not seem to UEFI-boot after loading it as a virtual CD on an IODD! Also UEFI32 is not supported.

The majority of the other AV apps and utilities are MBR-bootable only and seem to work OK when booted from the E2B menu from the ISO file (you can use a .isodef file extension).

To convert to a .imgPTN23 file, just drag-and-drop the ISO file onto the MPI_FAT32 Desktop icon after installing the MPI Tool Kit. Use the default options (Syslinux v5 or v6  plus auto-configure).

Other recent popular boot CDs can also be downloaded from the same COMSS site here.

Note: I cannot vouch for the safety of the site or its contents!
