Anyways today I noticed that, when I was trying to install windows after doing a secure erase and using an old oem dvd I had, the partition X had some folders and registry entries that are not there usually, for example, different versions of drivers, and, when I finally booted into windows I saw all firewall rules and policies that allowed remote access, rpc, file sharing, etc.
I also noticed that the dvd wasnt spinning, so I removed it and the installationg kept going from 84% to 100%. Very strange
I managed to backup this X folder I might upload it later if anyone is interested. My question is: where is this malware located? The only thing I can think of is the firmware of any of the components but sounds extremely unusual.
Edit: Yes, I know the X partition should be there, Im just surprised that it somehow manages to have newver versions of specific drivers and the computer wasnt even reading the dvd. Malwarebytes, avast, eset, hitman, clamav, kapersky, norton couldnt find anything.
