1. Download and install HPUSBFW tool (http://hp-usb-disk-storage-format-tool.software.informer.com/2.1/) and DOS boot disk files (http://www.allbootdisks.com/downloads/Disks/MS-DOS_Boot_Disk_Download47/... –--> attention: you’ll have to extract Dos6.22.exe to a floppy. If your computer doesn’t have a floppy drive, you’ll have to make a floppy diskette elsewhere and than copy all files from the diskette to desired destination).
2. Format USB flash drive using HPUSBFW.exe. Attention: for the File system you must choose FAT (if there is no FAT option in the menu, it means that your USB flash drive can’t be formatted as FAT and you have to find another USB flash drive). Check option ‘Create a DOS startup disk’. In the field ‘using DOS system files located at:’ point to the folder where bootable DOS files are.
3. After formatting, open your version of Acronis application and choose Create Bootable Rescue Media. For the destination media choose USB drive (Removable Disk).
4. Create file autoexec.bat in the root of USB flash drive. Enter this line in the file:
and save changes to the file.
Bootable Acronis USB drive is ready for use!
