    Greetings, used the Recovery media builder from the tools menu. Chosen USB Flash drive and standard Paragon rescue package. Flashed everything OK, but the problem is, when I reboot with that flash disc inserted, the computer boots normally. Is there need to press a hidden key or something?

    I use AMI BIOS, the order of boot devices is following: 1.removable media, 2. CD/DVD, 3.HDD, 4.Network

    Are you able to boot other flash drives?

    May be a setting in the bios.

    Don't know, I don't have more bootable flash drives

    is there tool to check if the pendrive is bootable to know if that's bios or the flash drive?

    In some BIOS Setup you must choose the first drive - connected flash drive. (in "Hard disk priority" entry)
