I have a Kaspersky rescue disk that scans everything for viruses. But, I cannot boot with it to get it started in Win 8.1?

Most likely something to do with UEFI (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface)(a secure boot technology that in effect, means it's difficult to boot anything other than the installed Windows OS). It can be disabled, at your own risk.
