    1) I need to know if I can make a bootable USB Flash Drive, a Cruzer in my example.
    2) If the above is possible, can these USB devices be incorporated in the boot order?

    Hi, jorge_camps

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Yes.
    That depends on whether your MotherBoard and BIOS support Booting from USB Devices:- Making Bootable FlashDrive

    Take Care,

    Hello jorge_camps,

    Just to add a little to what TheQuest has already said, the USB Flash Drive needs to be formatted as FAT not FAT32 otherwise there is no chance of it booting the Acronis (Linux based) rescue environment.

    Regards
