I am attempting to create a bootable USB rescue drive (using the create rescue media wizard) on a USB flashdrive. This particular drive is identified by XP as "local disk"; which, apparently, cannot be used by the create media wizard. The "local disk" vs. "removable media" designation is part of the flash drive's firmware: http://www.no-install.com/modules.p...ewtopic&t=85&highlight=lexar jumpdrive secure Question 1: Is it true that the create rescue media wizard only uses removable drive types? Question 2: Is there a way to treat this drive as a hard disk, make it bootable, and install TI9 (like the recovery partition). And, to the obvious answer of "get a different flash drive"... that isn't an option. I'm creating a proof-of-concept demo for this type of drive; saying we should switch flash drives is the same as saying "it can't be done" (which I do not believe is true). Thanks.
