Please, if not already done - test with a 'real' boot of your USB stick

You are also recommended to use the latest release of Easyboot (v_6.5.2.695)
Same to UltraISO - use v_9.5.2.2836

You are right, it works better with the real computer boot.

Acronis now boots but does not get to the screen that says "What would you like to do? Back Up / Recover" (I think after searching for the hard drives) the screen turns black and it stays like that.

Acronis mounted ISO works as expected.

Could you try your version to see if it goes the whole way, please.

Thanks.

P.S. I updated both UltraIso and EasyBoot to the latest versions.

Done! And working excellent - as expected :)

If still having problem test using my script 'easyboot-iso.script' to integrate acronis.iso-file :cool:
Note: DO NOT check 'Run ISO from RAM' in script as this is pointless!

When 'Burn' build to USB, use USB-HDD+ and uncheck 'Create Boot Partition' and 'Deep Hidden' because we cannot use these options, as the 'grub-loader-mechanism' used in script, cannot run from Boot partition that EasyBoot create :O

It was so close :(.

I ran the script and saved iso. Mounted and tried it on a virtual machine - works perfectly!

So, I wrote the image to USB Stick and tried to boot my notebook. Acronis boots, shows splash screens and just like before a black screen and no info.

However I was able to record a video and got the error text that appears for one second just before the black screen is shown:



bin/ipwatchd: error while loading shared libraries: libpcap.so. 1: cannot open shared object file. No Setup AVD devices.

libcap.so is missing, it seems. but it is not in the image:



any ideas why it works with ISO on a virtual drive and not from written image to USB stick? any ideas about the error message?

thanks

Then test this:

1. Use my script 'easyboot-usb_v2.script'

2. Point to acronis.iso when script asks for file to use

Test if this works. If not - then it can be something wrong with your USB stick ???

If you have a second stick -test that one :cool:

Note: you have in script 'easyboot-usb_v2.script' a separate test-button: "Test USB in qemu"
Check for "Allocate 512MB RAM" to make sure you have enough RAM to run Acronis in this 'Virtual test' system.

In the emulator, it shows the same message but then the process goes on properly and I got to the next Acronis menu:



That probably proves that USB stick works properly. I was wondering if you have the same message when you are running it on your machine?

I will try my stick on another computer at work today to see if it will boot properly there.

If Acronis works just on some computers, I should probably get Ghost as another option for USB drive.

I will write more later after the experiment on another computer.

thanks

Good idea :;):

Quote: "I should probably get Ghost as another option for USB drive"

Even an better idea, as I'm a great fan of Ghost and - in my opinion - the very best choice to use :)

Quote: "I was wondering if you have the same message when you are running it on your machine?"
No I don't receive this message!
--------------------------------------
Notebooks isn't the very best to test such builds ???
I always test to stationary computer as BIOS to such motherboards is a little bit better designed.
Hmmm... If I could get my hands on those BIOS manufactures :angry:
He, he no hard feelings - but sometimes its very frustrating when 'things go wrong' :O
------------------------------------
Note: in script built-in test to USB device is a little bit slow - have patience when using that test facility.
On the other, you don't need to reboot computer which take some time as well

I tried it at work and I get the same error but it continues properly after that, just like in the case of script build-in test. So, it's kinda shaky but it seems to work on some machines.

Since you don't get this error message that I have with (note that this libpcap.so error message comes just for a second or so and then it disappears), I am wondering if you actually have libpcap.so file inside of acronis iso? I am trying to figure out the source of the problem. Is there actually a file missing and is it possible to solve it? Search for the file inside acronis installation on the computer and copy it to the image or download it, etc. etc.

The thing is that I am creating a bootable flash drive to send to my parents that have Eee Pc without an optical drive. I want to install Windows 7 and then make an image of drive. So, I cannot really risk having something that might or might not work. So, today, I will try to integrate Ghost 15 into EasyBoot as well, just in case Acronis fails.

So, now I will have to find the right post on how to use Ghost 15 with EasyBoot :).

thanks for the help

Solution to Ghost15
Copy Ghost15.iso (rescue-iso-file) to folder ezboot and use menu command:  run ghost.iso  (or whatever name you use to iso)

However I'm a little bit confused ???
Did you test using solution in post nr,15 to acronis.iso (skipping Easyboot and directly launch Acronis.iso) :O

no, no. I used the EasyBoot created image (an image that was created with the help of running script for Acorins.iso that created the ISO\ACRONIS\ACRONIS.img + iso files) to write to usb and tested it with usb script as you suggested.
