1st sorry if I'm posting a dupe, I checked real quick and didn't notice anybody using this technique. This is an easier, more simplified way of creating a bootable DVD with backup images rather than using the seemingly most popular downloading the cdshell + bcdw, then follow the next 20 steps method. Well at least in my opinion anyways. 1) Create a Rescue CD as usual, also noting that a CDRW works fine as well. 2) Grab a copy of UltraISO Note: For some reason this method didn't seem to work with WinISO 3) Now go into UltraISO and select Tools->Make CD/DVD Image (or just hit F. Make sure the right CD/DVD drive is selected and use default Output File Location or the location of your choice, we'll call it xxx.iso 4) When finished, goto File->Open and select xxx.iso (the image you just created) 5) Select Bootable->Save Boot File and again, the name/location of your choice. this we'll call yyy.bif At this point, we have a bootable Rescue CD/DVD image that is encapsulated in the boot image. Save this file to use for any future bootable CD/DVDs. 6) Now we goto File->New->Bootable CD/DVD Image. Select the yyy.bif image we just created. You'll notice that there's no files/folders in the explorer window, that's OK. Also verify that Bootable CD/DVD is displayed in the Image label at the left corner above the Directory window. 7) Drag over whatever Acronis backup images you want (.tib files) Finally goto File->Save As and the name of your choice. Be sure to use the .iso extension, not .bif. Then burn using software of your choice. Any future bootable discs you want to create just follow from step 6. You can erase any of the other files we've created except for the yyy.bif. This for me anyways is a bit simpler than other methods plus eliminates any additional files and directories. Hope this is useful for some of you!!
