Hi. Is it possible to make recovery with TrueImage to a DVD, and make this bootable?
Yes. At least on DVD+RW I know it works.
How do I do it? Ghost have the option to burn bootfloppy into the image. When I boot with the True Image CD, I can store image to DVD, but I cannot see any option that will make it bootable?
This is covered in the lengthy and long runing thread titled <How to create bootable rescue DVD(s): >. However, to save wading through all 11 pages, allow me to point you to the following posts:
Using WinISO + BCDW
<Page 2 Post 26> with image split size amended as per <Page 11 Post #256>.
Using UltraISO Version 188.8.131.525 or Higher
<Page 11 Post #269>.
Hope it's what you're looking for .
Hi again rornes,
Further to my reply above, you don't in fact need to jump through the hoops detailed in the links that I provided.
The latest builds of True Image now have the capability to image direct to DVD without use of third party UDF packet writing software. When imaging in Windows mode, they also have the capability to include the Acronis Media Components with the image being recorded to DVD (Tools>Default Backup Options>Media Components).
I have just finished testing these new features by successfuly creating full disk/partition images to both DVD+RW and DVD-RW disks that included the full bootable rescue media plus the One-Click Restore. Just bear in mind the current problems and limitations that TI has with imaging direct to DVD+RW, DVD-R and DVD+R media (see the thread titled <TI 9.0 Home Build 3633 - Imaging Direct to DVD> and <TI 9 - Build 3633 - Can't span DVD disks> for details of these problems/limitations).
Oh dear, seems to be one problem after the other with TI's new direct imaging to DVD feature .
I'm currently experiencing a problem whilst validating an image, which also contains the Media Components, that spans two Nero erased DVD+RW disks. Therefore, at this point in time, I suggest you only use DVD-RW media for creating TI 9.0 Build 3633 bootable rescue DVDs. I intend raising a separate thread on this particular issue once I've completed further investigations.
I think Acronis should start paying you for all the testing you are doing. You could make this a "side" job.
As I took early retirement 2000, it would make it my only job!!
