If you want to run an antivirus scan on a system that can't boot into the OS, then I would recommend you take the hard drive out of the infected system, plug it into another system either internally or externally using a SATA/IDE to USB adapter and then running an antivirus scan on the infected drive.

If this isn't an option then you can check this out: AVG - Rescue CD | PC Rescue and Repair Toolkit

I haven't used it but it looks like it's exactly what you're looking for.
