1. I just purchase TI version 9 and updated this version to the latest update. 2. I installed MediaBuilder and tried to create a bootable CD 3. I ran MediaBuilder and it wrote the image and files to the CD. 4. Next I changed the setup to boot from only the CD drive. 5. Restared my machine and voila - no bootable CD was found! 6. Next I repeated steps 3 - 5 three more times with the same results. Since I do not want Activate the Startup Recovery (had a bad experience with Symantec's GoBack that also changed the MBR and had to reinstall the whole system), I want to use a bootable CD 7. So I made a bootable 3.5 diskettes using MedaBuilder 8. I tested the bootable diskettes and it worked !! Why doesn't MediaBuilder build a bootable CD? The MediaBuilder indicated no errors and the I have a folder with files on the CD. I am running Windows XP, my CD drive is NEC ND1100. and I have booted other CD using this CD drive. Why can't I just get a bootable CD from Acronis? Can I? Or why is MediaBuilder make creating a CD that is bootable?
