    During creation of bootable media there is a option to create a bootable media and commandline parameters are required. Can someone tell me what the parameters are? (creating a bootable cd on drive E CD-RW)

    The command line parameters are listed in the TI User Guide. They are optional -- you would add one or more if you're having a problem with the boot CD and your hardware. Normally you don't need to add any.

    Hello geklingel,

    Thank you for using Acronis Products

    The following parameters can be used to load Linux kernel in a special mode:

    • acpi=off
    Disables ACPI and may help with a particular hardware configuration.

    • noapic
    Disables APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller) and may help with a
    particular hardware configuration.

    • nousb
    Disables USB modules loading.

    • nousb2
    Disables USB 2.0 support. USB 1.1 devices still work with this option. This option
    allows using some USB drives in USB 1.1 mode, if they do not work in USB 2.0 mode.

    • quiet
    This parameter is enabled by default and the startup messages are not displayed.
    Deleting it will result in the startup messages being displayed as the Linux kernel is
    loaded and the command shell being offered prior to running the very Acronis

    • nodma
    Disables DMA for all IDE disk drives. Prevents kernel from freezing on some

    • nofw
    Disables FireWire (IEEE1394) support.

    • nopcmcia
    Disables PCMCIA hardware detection.

    • nomouse
    Disables mouse support.

    • [module name]=off
    Disables the module (e.g. sata_sis=off).

    • pci=bios
    Forces to use PCI BIOS, not access the hardware device directly. For instance, this
    parameter may be used if the machine has a non-standard PCI host bridge.

    • pci=nobios
    Disallows use of PCI BIOS; only direct hardware access methods are allowed For
    instance, this parameter may be used if you experience crashes upon boot-up,
    probably caused by the BIOS.

    • pci=biosirq
    Uses PCI BIOS calls to get the interrupt routing table. These calls are known to be
    buggy on several machines and they hang the machine when used, but on other
    computers it is the only way to get the interrupt routing table. Try this option, if the
    kernel is unable to allocate IRQs or discover secondary PCI buses on your
