    I'm a registred User of Acronis True Image HOME 2009.

    I created a bootable Rescue Media on my USB Stick. This progress was completed sucessfully

    In BIOS, I've enabled Starting from Flash-Drives. After restart, the USB Stick is used for booting, but the only i get is "Missing Operating System".

    What's wrong ?

    I have got this to work by using Grub4dos which has the ability to boot from .iso files. With this utility I am able to boot Ghost Imaging (MS-DOS), WinPE 2.0 (Vista) and Acronis recovery images (iso) all from one 16-gig USB stick. Here is link for using it to boot Acronis images.

    I also use this utility to boot the Acronis Recovery iso from my external usb hard drive where I have my images. This way I don't need to carry the cd with me.

    Here is what my boot menu on my usb external hard drive looks like for my images stored.
