i have Ti9 last built
is there a way to make a recovery disk in a usb key?
There's a whole thread here devoted to doing just that. A search should find it for you.
Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.
We are sorry for delayed response.
It is indeed possible to create Acronis Bootable Rescue Media on an USB flash drive using Acronis True Image 9.0 Home. Please see chapter 9 "Creating bootable media" of the respective User's Guide for instructions.
i did it
but the pc doesn't boot with the usb key
Does the computer boot other flashdrives okay?
Does the computer boot this flashdrive if it has something else on it (BartPE, VistaPE, Knoppix, Linux, etc.)?
Do you get an error message when you try and boot it?
it boots! with everthing but not acronis
i tried to make a boot usb but acronis did not format the key , it wrote only files of ti9 , and it left other old files (my documents) in the key
That's right. Media Builder does not format the flashdrive. It will also not erase any existing files. I actually like this because I keep other files on my flashdrives.
What exactly happens when you try and boot it? Any error message? Blank screen? Blinking DOS cursor? What?
What format is the flashdrive (FAT16, FAT32, etc.)?
What size is the flashdrive (512MB, 1GB, 2GB, etc.)?
thanks for the answer and the help
my flashdrive is a 2gb
i can format only fat32 via xp
and when i try to boot i get a black screen with a blinking dos corsor on the down left corner of the monitor
What have you previously successfully booted from this flashdrive?
Have you tried any of the "empty" images from the link in my signature?
I assume that you have verified that the flashdrive is the booting drive in the computer's BIOS. Sometimes another non-booting internal drive will "sneak" in and cause the "DOS cursor" problem (though it's usually in the top-left corner of the screen).
I thought I read somewhere a while ago that it has to be formatted as FAT, not FAT32.
Both FAT and FAT32 should work. However, some computers work better with one format than the other.
no , i have not still try your image
i will do it
but why don't you make this image with Winimage http://www.winimage.com/ , you can make an iso with installation
it's very cool , winimage will make an exe(with the image inside)
you run the winimage exe ,and you can restore the image very quickly
