Hi all,
When I want to create a bootable media, I come across this window but I don't know what to choose :
 
Can you explain each option to me?

Hello Maxime,

Welcome to Acronis forums!

This option enables you to select the boot mode (BIOS or UEFI) that Windows will use after the recovery:

You can choose one of the following:

  • As on the target machine

    The agent that is running on the target machine detects the boot mode currently used by Windows and makes the adjustments according to the detected boot mode.

    This is the safest value that automatically results in bootable system unless the limitations listed below apply. Since the Boot mode option is absent under bootable media, the agent on media always behaves as if this value is chosen.

  • As on the backed-up machine

    The agent that is running on the target machine reads the boot mode from the backup and makes the adjustments according to this boot mode. This helps you recover a system on a different machine, even if this machine uses another boot mode, and then replace the disk in the backed-up machine.

  • BIOS

    The agent that is running on the target machine makes the adjustments to use BIOS.

  • UEFI

    The agent that is running on the target machine makes the adjustments to use UEFI.
