Izu uzI Posted December 20, 2005 Share Posted December 20, 2005 Hello, I'm a systems & networks admin in a quiet big society, so I often need to install computers from scratch. Some weeks ago, I was searching an USB Key big enough to care a Ghost image while beeing bootable. I found the Corsair FlashVoyager 2GB on Internet, and I bought it. But since, I've never been able to boot from. I tried many different computers & configurations, many different bootable disks as source, and many way to make it bootable, but I failed each time. I was at first using your tool, but it only knows how to copy system files from a Win98/Me bootdisk, which isn't very usefull when you want to make a Ghost bootdisk... Anyway, I tried it just to check if at least it works when doing things like your programmers wanted us to do, and I got an "Operating system not found" error... Then I tried the wellknown, reputed and advised HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. Actually, this tool allowed me to make bootable an old 256MB USB Key than I thought unable to boot, but it never succeeded with the 2GB FlashVoyager. I got a "Device media is write-protected" error. Beside that, I'm still able to use the key like before. Nothing seems internally unset or broken, like lot of people seems to suffer on there. So I uninstalled your driver/software, thinking it was maybe puting the key in read-only mode for other applications, then I restarted Windows and I retried. Guess what... It still failed. So, here is my question: How is it possible to boot from a FlashVoyager WITHOUT unplugging the harddrives (eh what the goal to run such a system), like with most others USB Key?
