Question about Computers & Internet

5 Answers

Bootable USB I have an Imation USB 2.0 Atom Flash Drive 4Gb. I would like to configure it so that it will boot my PC using the Drive Image v7 CD in order to restore my PC from a previously saved backup copy (saved in a separate hard drive inside the PC). And also have extra storage to copy other CDs and files into the flash drive. First, I don't know how to make the flash drive bootable. Second, I suppose I need to burn my Drive Image CD into an ISO file (which I don't know also how to do - I have Nero v8 and I can't find how or where to burn the CD into ISO). Third, I think I need to burn the CD ISO file into the flash drive (which I don't know how to do also) so that it would boot the Drive Image program in order for me to do a restore. Lastly, since its a 4Gb flash dirve, I do would want to copy other files (or CDs) into the flash drive. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Dear Proton,



    right now my PC is fine but I do get the blue screen of death once in a while and when I do I get (look for) my Drive Image v7 CD (which is a bootable CD) to boot into Drive Image's restore program then restore from my previous backup images of my hard drive. Last time my CD was full of molds that I thought I could not use it anymore (luckily after cleaning, it still worked). I want to have a bootable USB as another option rather than relying on my CD. As for my OS, I am using Win XP Prof SP3. My PC is configured as having a 60 Gb boot hard drive (drive C where I install all my programs) and I have another 120 Gb data hard drive (drive D) where I save all my files - docs, photos, etc and including the backup images of my boot drive.



    Thanks, Albert

    Dear ajkill,



    Sorry for the late reply, I have been out of town on a workshop seminar for a couple of weeeks. I tried your suggestion and was able to make my 4Gb Flash drive to boot BartPE. But what I really wanted was to make my flash drive boot my Drive Image CD (ISO) so that I can use it in case I need to restore my PC using the Drive Image backup images.



    Thanks for your help.

    Dear Proton,



    Drive Image v7 is an old (2003) program from Power Quest used to make hard drive images as backup of the PC so that the PC can be restored to the original state (as of the backup) much like Norton's Ghost program. Unfortunately, the company PowerQuest (makers of Drive Image and Partition Magic) was acquired by Symantec 2-3 years ago, presumably to incorporate its technology into its own Ghost program. Eversince the acquisition PowerQuest's product have disappeared (not even re-marketed by Symantec).



    I would appreciate it if anyone can show me how to make my flash drive bootable and be able to boot the Drive Image CD (ISO).



    Thanks.

Rreadow To Boot From A USB Flash For starters this is still a new science and many people have had good luck with at least one of these methods and others have not. Note that flash drives are often also called thumb drives, keychain drives, pendrives, etc. A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER IN ADVANCE. 1. The PC has to support booting from a USB flash drive. There may be anywhere from 1-3 items to change in the BIOS to make this possible assuming your BIOS supports it. Some bios's may refer to your flash drive as a USB floppy or USB zip.
2. The USB flash drive must support booting from it in general.
3. The flash drive must contain the boot/system files.
4. The flash drive must have bootsector area. This is done with special utilities.
5. References to "A:" drive lines in the autoexec.bat and/or config.sys files you copy to the drive after you make it bootable may result in errors.
6. You "may" have to format your floppy disk first in WinXP before you create a bootdisk as XP may "not" like working later on with a disk formatted otherwise.
7. Included below is a bootable ISO of DOS 7.1 which may be used with some of these methods if you do not have a 1.44 drive.
Bootable USB - zivider.gifzivider.gif METHODS Method 1 - Make your flash drive bootable using Bart's mkbt util:
http://www.nu2.nu/mkbt/ | Alt: mkbt20.zip Put a bootable floppy disk in your A: drive or create one using Windows.
Download mkbt20.zip and unpack to to new temp folder you create.
Go to the temp folder.
Extract the bootsector from the bootable floppy disk. eg Open a DOS Window and go to the directory where you extracted MKBT. Type: mkbt -c a: bootsect.bin The boot sectors from the bootable floppy disk have just been saved to a file in the temp folder you created. Format the flash drive in FAT or FAT16. Copy the bootsector to the flash drive. Open a DOS Window and go to the folder where you extracted MKBT. Type: mkbt -x bootsect.bin Z: "Z" represents the flash drive drive Letter. So if your flash drive has another drive letter, then change the "Z" accordingly. Now you can [grin] "should" be able to copy the utils you need to the pen drive.
zivider.gifzivider.gif Method 2 - Try these 2 HP/Compaq USB Flash Drive Utilities. They work with many other brands of flash drives as well. HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool Version 2.0.6
HP Drive Key Boot Utility Version 7.41
zivider.gifzivider.gif Method 3 - Third Party Links http://ucsu.colorado.edu/~shaher/Bootable_USB.html Recall I did say it's a new science.

zivider.gifzivider.gif Method 4 - A Bootdisk.Com Visitor Suggested Here is my another method for creating dos bootable USB sticks using windows format. 1. From Win98 DOS-Prompt type "SYS {USBDriveLetter}:" or "FORMAT {USBDriveLetter} /U /S". If from WinXp then from start->run command.com execute format.exe copied from win95 or win98. OR 2. Simply by enabling copy system files in windows explorer format window. By default it is disabled for non-floppy drives. To enable it use windows enabler program from
http://www.angelfire.com/falcon/speedload/EBootable USB - zivider.gif/a> an whoila it works.
zivider.gifzivider.gifzivider.gif Method 5 - Another Bootdisk.Com Fan Suggested - Thanks Keith First if you don't have a physical floppy drive (and don't want one) you can use the [free] "virtual floppy driver" from here:
http://chitchat.at.infoseek.co.jp/vmware/vfd.html With that you get an A: drive and can manipulate a floppy image as if you were using real floppy. You can then use that image to make a bootable CD. It's not that user friendly but once you get how it works it does work perfectly. Even cooler you can use a "raw write" utility like dd for windows to write the floppy image directly to your USB thumb drive. Even without that famous HP utility to do the magic this will make your USB thumb drive bootable. The 'dd' ported to Windows is located here: http://www.chrysocome.net/dd Another trick you can use with that dd utility involves MS VritualPC (which is free). You can create a virtual machine/virtual hard drive, set it up the way you want then use dd to "raw write" the virtual hard drive image to the thumb drive; this will make the thumb drive identical to the image, including bootable (again, no HP utilities required). Of course, your thumb drive will effectively have the capacity the size if the image in question (your 1GB flash drive will effectively be 1.44 Megs).

    The only thing you have to do next is to change the 1st boot device to USB DEVICE in the BIOS.



    It will boot from the USB Drive.

Hard reset


You are going to need to make a Linux USB boot device. For this, you will need another computer connected to the Internet and a ~4GB USB flash drive.

First, you will need to get Knoppix, which is what I will suggest because I know how to do this task with it.
http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html

Once you get Knoppix, download the USB installer.
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/

Launch it and select Knoppix and browse to the image you downloaded from the Knoppix site. Create your bootable pen drive.

Plug the USB drive into the netbook and power it on. Enter BIOS by pressing the key it says to (probably F2 or Delete). Navigate to Advanced or Boot tab and select the hard drive boot order. Raise the USB drive to the top of the list by using +. Hit F10 to save changes and restart. Knoppix will boot.

Once it boots and you follow the first run prompts, open the terminal emulator and follow the instructions here:
http://rhadimas.wordpress.com/2006/10/15/reset-windows-password-w-knoppix/

That should reset your password to whatever you want it to be.

Alternatively, you can make a Windows USB installer with the instructions here:
http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/

You will still need another computer with an Internet connection and knowledge of the command prompt as well as a ~4GB USB flash drive. Follow the same BIOS instructions as for the Linux drive.

Creating Bootable USB Flash Drive.


The USB Flash Drive must be configured with an active primary MS-DOS partition. It must also contain the boot files. Follow the steps below to create a bootable USB Flash Drive.
Requirements:
  • Motherboard with BIOS that supports USB boot.
  • USB Flash Drive that may be erased.
  • Bootable floppy disk or CD with Fdisk and Format commands.
Directions:
  1. Plug in the USB Flash Drive.
  2. Make the USB drive the only bootable hard drive. Method 1:
    If available, change the BIOS settings for the hard drive sequence, making sure the USB device is at the top of the list above all other hard drives. Not all BIOS Setup Utilities have this option. Method 2:
    Disable all hard drives in the BIOS. In some BIOS Setup Utilities you can disable the individual hard drives, while in others you will need to disable the controller. Method 3:
    Unplug all hard drive cables inside the case. If the cables are unplugged the computer cannot detect and boot to the hard drive.
  3. Insert the bootable floppy disk or CD into the appropriate drive.
  4. Restart the computer to the bootable floppy disk or CD.
  5. At the command prompt, type: FDisk.
  6. Delete and create a new active primary DOS partition.
  7. Use FDisk to delete all partitions from the USB Flash Drive.
    • In FDisk, press the 3 key to Delete partition or Logical DOS Drive.
    • If there is just one partition on the drive, choose 1 to delete the primary DOS partition. If there are several partitions, the extended and logical partitions must be deleted before the primary partition.
    • After choosing option 1, the screen appears with partition information and a prompt for the partition to delete. Choose which primary DOS partition to delete, and then press ENTER.
    • A prompt appears to enter the volume label of the hard drive. Enter the label exactly as it appears on the top of the screen in the partition information. If the volume label contains gibberish or lowercase letters, the partition will have to be deleted as a non-DOS partition. Try using the option to delete a non-DOS partition in FDISK. After entering the volume label, press ENTER.
    • You are prompted if it should delete the partition. Press Y for Yes, and then press ENTER.
    • The screen changes to show only the total disk space and a line near the bottom that prompts that the primary DOS partition has been deleted. Press the ESC key to return to the main menu.
  8. Use FDisk to create a primary partition on the USB Flash Drive. The drive letter will be C:, since all other hard drives were disabled in step 2.
    • In FDisk, press 1 to Create DOS partition or Logical DOS drive.
    • Press 1 to Create a Primary DOS Partition.
    • The next screen prompts if the maximum hard disk size should be made into one partition. Press the Y key, and then press ENTER.
    • The next screen prompts that the computer will now reboot. Press ENTER to continue.
  9. Exit FDisk and restart the computer.
  10. Start the computer from the bootable floppy disk or CD with the USB Flash Drive still connected.
  11. At the command prompt, run Format by typing the following command: Format c: /s. Press ENTER.
  12. At the command prompt, run FDisk by typing following command: Fdisk /mbr. Press ENTER.
  13. Restart the computer without the bootable floppy disk or CD, and attempt to boot to the USB Flash Drive. If it works, it should go to a C:\> command prompt.
  14. Change the settings made in step 2 back so that the computer operates normally again.
