Hi @Behdadsoft

Yes you are right. This latest bitdefender has peculiarities regarding boot sequence when launched from EasyBoot – it’s a mess….

However you didn’t say from what source you run bitdefender/EasyBoot.

I can offer you 2 ways to launch Bitdefender from CD/DVD-unit using EasyBoot menu.
There are actually 3-ways to solve this. Third way is to use a grub kicker image, but memdisk solution is great in this case :;):

----------------
Scenario-A:
1. Extract all contents of bitdefender.iso-file to the root of EasyBoot (not inside folder ezboot, it must be the root of Easyboot which is parallel to folder EZBOOT)

2. Extract boot-file from bitdefender.iso-file (I used UltraISO and ‘Saved’ boot file using name bitdefender.bif to folder ezboot)

3. In EasyBoot menu I used menu command: bootinfotable:run bitdefender.bif

4. Burned to CD/DVD and it worked fine when tested from a ‘real boot’ (don't test from 'virtual environment' as this may not work correctly)

Scenario-B:
1. Extract folder ‘rescue’ from inside of bitdefender.iso-file to the root of EasyBoot (I always use UltraISO  to this operations)

2. Deleted folder ‘rescue’ from inside of bitdefender.iso-file as this folder isn’t needed inside ISO-file anymore. I saved reduced ISO-file to folder ezboot using name bitdefender.iso

3. In EasyBoot menu I used menu command: memdisk bitdefender.iso
   
5. Burned to CD/DVD and it worked fine when tested from a ‘real boot’

------------------------------------------------
But to launch bitdefender from USB drive, is a little bit different story :cool:

Bitdefender from USB drive ('frugal solution'):

1. Extract folders ‘boot’, ‘rescue’, and finally folder ‘syslinux’ to the root of EasyBoot
Note; I used UltraISO for this operation.

2. Delete folder ‘rescue’ inside bitdefender.iso as this folder isn’t needed there any more (this heavily reduce size of bitdefender.iso-file). Save reduced ISO to folder ‘EZBOOT’ using a pretty name (bitdefender.iso or whatever)

3. In EasyBoot menu use command: run bitdefender.iso as menu command.

4. Create ISO and burn to USB drive

Attention! I tested above solutions (both CD/DVD-unit as USB drive) using a ‘real boot’ (burned to CD/DVD-record) and not from ‘virtual environment’ as this may not give the right test results!

It’s vital when creating ISO in EasyBoot, you make sure to only tick ‘Joliet’ :O
You can also tick: ‘Hide Boot Folder’ and ‘Hide All Files in Boot Folder’

DO NOT tick ‘Optimize’ or ‘DOS(8.3)’ only ‘Joliet’ should be used!

I again tested solution A and B run from CD\DVD and it worked fine
However I decided to create an third option using ‘grub-kicker-image’ to launch bitdefender.

Test this:
1. Extracted folder ‘rescue’ from inside of bitdefender.iso-file to the root of EasyBoot
(Inside folder ‘disk1’ you should now at least have folder ’ezboot’ and a folder ‘rescue’)

2. Deleted folder ‘rescue’ from inside of bitdefender.iso-file as this folder isn’t needed inside ISO-file anymore. I saved reduced ISO-file to folder disk1 using name BITDEFENDER.ISO
Attention! Name to ISO-file is sometimes case-sensitive when run grub-kicker-image’ from CD\DVD
Make sure you use CAPS (BIG LETTERS TO WHOLE NAME BITDEFENDER.ISO)
(Inside folder ‘disk1’ you should now at least have folder ’ezboot’ and a folder ‘rescue’ and a bitdefender.iso-file)

3. Download correct ‘grub-kicker-image’ from HERE and copy image to folder EZBOOT

4. In EasyBoot menu I used menu command: run BITDEFENDER.img
When creating ISO in EasyBoot, you make sure to only tick ‘Joliet’
   
5. Burned to CD/DVD and it worked fine when tested from a ‘real boot’

EDIT: Noticed some improvement regarding ‘stability’ in bitdefenders behaviour
I’m pointing to also copy folder ‘boot’ and folder ’syslinux’ to the root of EasyBoot (folder disk1 is the root in EasyBoot).
You should now at least have folder ’ezboot’ and a folder ‘rescue’, ‘boot’ and finally folder ’syslinux’ together in folder ‘disk1’.
This procedure is recommended to both CD\DVD-unit as USB drive solution.
