- - Program Name: Acronis 2k10 UltraPack
Program version: 3.0.3 (15.02.2013)
Interface language: English / Russian
Treatment: not required
System requirements:
Computer with 128Mb RAM and above, CD/DVD drive or USB interface.
Description:
The disk consists of a large number of Acronis, Paragon, etc. products, with the ability to boot from CD, USB Flash Drive, USB-HDD and regular HDD. The main purpose is to prepare the HDD for OS installation, create/deploy system images, restore/copy data. This disk is a set of DOS and Linux versions of the Multi-boot 2k10 assembly products, adapted to the size of a CD-ROM.

How to create a bootable DVD or USB-Flash/USB-HDD

1. For CD/DVD:
You will need a program for recording images - for example, Nero Burning ROM. Run the program, the Recorder -> Record the image, specify the image file, make sure that it is marked "Finalize the disk" and the recording method "Disc-At-Once (DAO)". The disk with other recording settings will not load! For Nero, it is also recommended to "Allow the generation of a short Lead-Out" (File ->Options -> Expert Properties), this allows you to reduce the recording time, speed up the recognition time of the compact and slightly increase the capacity of the blank. The recording speed is minimal within reasonable limits. I recommend 8-16x for CDs or 4x for DVDs. The principle is as follows: we write slower - we read faster (more reliably).
You can also use other programs that allow you to record images (for example, UltraISO, Alcohol 120, ...).
2. Installing the assembly on the flash drive:

Note: since Syslinux supports only the FAT/FAT32 file system, when using this bootloader, it is mandatory to format the USB flash drive in FAT32!
2.1 The flash drive must be formatted beforehand (Attention! All data on the flash drive will be destroyed). This is necessary in order for the flash drive to be perceived by the Bios as a USB-HDD, from which the operating system can be loaded. If the USB flash drive / screw has already been used as bootable, this item can be skipped. It is recommended to format the flash drive under FAT32 (it works longer and more stable in this file system), but, if necessary, you can also use NTFS if the Grub4Dos loader is used (it kills faster; USB flash drive, requires "safe extraction", but supports files larger than 4GB). It is best to do this using RMPrepUSB (there is a 2k10Programs-2k10flash-utilitesrmprepusb in the build path or from the P2Start.exe menu "2k10USB-Flash utilities"). This utility creates the geometry closest to the screw on the flash drive. If you mark Boot as HDD (C: 2PTNS), two partitions will be created on the flash drive (the second is the minimum size, for maximum imitation of the screw). But I do not recommend using this option, such a flash drive will "hang"; household appliances (TVs with a flash player, players, etc.). It is quite enough to do as in the picture.
Alternative methods of formatting the flash drive (instead of 2.1)
2.1.1 Format the flash drive using the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool (there is an assembly along the path Programs-2k10flash-utiliteshpusbfw), you can use fast formatting. It may not work on some PCs (the bootloader is incorrectly connected to the USB flash drive). If it works, it can be used for both FAT32 and NTFS.
2.1.2 Format the flash drive using BootICE (2k10programs-2k10flash-utilitesbootice)... It is recommended to format like this: BootICE (select a USB stick) -gt; Parts Manage -gt; ReFormat USB disk -gt; USB-HDD mode (Single Partition) - Align to sectors: 2048 -gt; Next -gt; FAT32(NTFS) -gt; OK. It doesn't always work either, my bootloader connects correctly only under NTFS.
2.1.3 We use FBInstTool (Programs-2k10flash-utilitesfbinsttool or in the menu, in the USB-Flash utilities section). Utility for non-standard formatting of flash drives, creates a special type of structure (USB-HDD + USB-Zip). Select a USB flash drive (focusing on the size!), mark in the formatting options: -raw -force, format.
2.2 After formatting, remove the USB flash drive and reconnect.
2.3 Using WinRAR, 7-zip, UltraISO, or even FAR or Total Commander, we unpack the contents of the image to a USB flash drive /USB-HDD (all of the above is in the assembly). Copy only the 2k10 folder and if desired MobaLive.exe .
It will be faster to first unpack the contents of the image into a temporary folder on the screw, and only then copy everything from it to a USB flash drive - repeatedly tested by experience. You can also mount the image as a virtual CD-ROM and copy from it - the effect is the same. If the flash drive is created under the downloaded assembly, it is convenient to mount the image using ImDisk (PCM on the image, "Mount...").
2.4 Using the bootloader Syslinux for flash drives:
It is necessary to make the USB flash drive bootable. Go to the 2k10 folder on the flash drive and run MakeBoot_SYSLINUX.bat. This batch file will make the drive bootable. Note that MakeBoot_SYSLINUX.bat needs to be launched from a flash drive (it determines the letter of the device by itself). After working off the batnik, your flash drive is ready to work.
Under Windows Vista/7/8, if UAC is enabled, you must FIRST set in the file properties attrib.exe (2k10SYSLINUXattrib.exe ) run as administrator! After working off the batnik, your USB flash drive became bootable (a boot file was created in the 2k10Syslinux folder ldlinux.sys (attributes: hidden/system).
Possible errors:
"syslinux.exe" is not an internal or external command, an executable program or a batch File - it appears when you try to run the batnik under the x64 version of Windows. For proper debugging, you need a 32-bit version (Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/W7). The solution is to do it on another computer or write the image to a blank, boot from it and do everything from under LiveXP.
2.5 Using the bootloader grub4dos for flash drives:
It is necessary to make the USB flash drive bootable. Go to the 2k10 folder on the flash drive and run MakeBoot_GRLDR.bat. This batch file will make the drive bootable. Note that MakeBoot_GRLDR.bat needs to be launched from a flash drive (it determines the letter of the device by itself). After working off the batnik, your flash drive is ready to work.
Under Windows Vista/7/8, if UAC is enabled, you must FIRST set in the file properties BSmod.exe (2k10GRUB4DOSBSmod.exe ) run as administrator!
This is not the only way to install Grub4Dos by bootloader, but one of the most "compatible" by boot. The download is identical to how it was done for Bootmgr (Vista/7/8), the same registration is used in the boot area (only adjusted under the name GRUBMGR to exclude intersections with other builds /installers /...).
2.6 Using the bootloader BOOTMGR for flash drives:
It is necessary to make the USB flash drive bootable. Go to the 2k10 folder on the flash drive and run MakeBoot_BOOTMGR.bat. This batch file will make the drive bootable. Note that MakeBoot_BOOTMGR.bat needs to be launched from a flash drive (it determines the letter of the device by itself). After working off the batnik, your flash drive is ready to work.
Under Windows Vista/7/8, if UAC is enabled, you must FIRST set in the file properties BootSect.exe (2k10GRUB4DOSBootSect.exe ) run as administrator!
This is the standard way to connect the bootloader from MicroSoft using BootSect. However, if desired, the bootloader can also be connected using BootICE.
3. Installation on USB-HDD/HDD:
3.1 The screw needs to be formatted with any HDD partitioning program, create a primary active/boot partition of a suitable size (at least 2GB). The file system we choose is FAT32, but, if necessary, you can also use NTFS if the Grub4Dos bootloader is used.
If the HDD is used in parallel for data transfer, it is convenient to split it like this: we make two primary partitions (if necessary, as many partitions as possible, but necessarily the first and last, for assembly, are primary, there may be logical ones in the middle). The first section is formatted to fit your needs in FAT32 / NTFS / ..., the size of the screw capacity minus 3-5GB. The second (or last partition, for assembly) - we definitely make an active/bootable one, for FAT32. We install the assembly on this section. Why is this the case? The most convenient thing is that if you need to delete a partition with an assembly, or, conversely, increase the space for this partition, the operation will be QUICKLY done using almost any disk manager without data loss on the first partitions.
3.2 We copy the assembly to the active HDD partition (similar to clause 2.3) and connect the bootloader (paragraphs 2.4-2.5).
The Syslinux bootloader for HDD is connected in the second makeboot run.bat (in the first - only flash drives), read the hint!
Under Windows Vista /7/8, it is mandatory to run the batnik with administrator rights!
Alternative methods of using the bootloader grub4dos using BootICE (2012) for flash drives/HDD:

1. WEE loader. It is placed completely in MBR (PBR is ignored), occupies 63 sectors (non-standard!). There is a built-in menu (you can edit it during installation) that allows you to find and download NTLDR, BOOTMGR, GRLDR,... Due to the non-standard nature, it is not recommended for a universal flash drive, but it is very convenient, for example, as a Boot manager on the system disk.
