10.2 Creating bootable media
In some cases, Acronis True Image can be run only from a special bootable diskette
or CD. Such a case might be if your PC doesn’t boot up normally.
You can create bootable media during or after the installation.
For this, you will need a CD-R/RW blank, five formatted diskettes (or two for the
safe variant), or any other media your PC can boot from, such as a Zip drive.
Click Create Rescue Media on the toolbar or in the left part of the main window,
or select Create Rescue Media from the Tools menu.
You can also create bootable media without loading Acronis True Image itself by
selecting Programs Acronis True Image Bootable Rescue Media Builder from
the Start menu.
You will see the bootable media wizard that will ask you to select either complete or
safe loader version. The latter doesn't have USB, PC card (formerly called PCMCIA)
or SCSI drivers and is useful only in case the complete version doesn’t work.
After you create a boot disk, identify it and keep it in a safe place.
