    Just got a new Asus 1000HE netbook.
    Want to replace 160GB HDD with a Seagate 320GB/7200.
    I formatted flash to FAT32, then via AHI-11 using "Create Bootable Rescue Media"created the Boot drive. Operation ended successful. I tested it on my desk top and Boot Flash Drive was detected and loaded. But when I put it in my Asus 1000HE and change boot order to "USB device" (1st) it does NOT detect Flash drive. Under a NORMAL windows boot, 1000HE does see the Boot Flash drive and it related files. Any idea what I'm doing wrong in 1000HE/Bios that it does NOT see Flash Boot Drive.
    I will only be on line another 15 minutes, then I must go to work. Back on line about 4:30am Saturday.
    Thanks

    Hello Dennis,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    I suppose it will be better to contact the appropriate technical support. It appears that the issue is related to the laptop malfunction.

    Thank you.

    Re: FlashDrive Boot fails - Asus 1000HE - ATI-11

    Thank you Acronis for your interest.
    Made some progress, 1000HE now detects flash drive at boot.
    Unfortunately, I get the following error message ...
    Background information.
    Using the following ..........
    Kingston Flash Drive - Model - DataTraveler 16GB
    Acronis True Image 11 - #8101
    Acronis Disk Director 10 - #2160

    I have reformatted flash drive (FAT32-both attempts), tried ADD-10 and ATI-11 (last update July 2008 ) to create bootable Rescue Flash Drive. Both default to the same error message.

    Thank you

    Hello MudCrab and Dennis,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    Dennis, the guide provided by MudCrab should help. Were you able to boot from USB stick?

    Thank you.
