Samsung Acronis True Image (2023)

You can create a rescue bootable media - a standalone version of Acronis True Image that you can use to boot a crashed machine or a machine without any operating system and restore an image of your system. Follow the instructions below to create a bootable media.

For instructions on how to create Acronis Survival Kit, see this article

How to create Acronis Bootable Media on a Windows computer

  1. Acronis True Image is an integrated application that enables you to clone basic drives (both MBR and GPT) to other drives, even if the target drive is of a different capacity. For Acronis True Image 2017 or earlier, the cloning should be done from Acronis bootable media.
  2. Acronis True Image products allow Cloning to be started from within the Windows Acronis application but this can result in an unbootable system or worse, a total loss of all data including the Windows OS if certain rules are not followed when doing a Clone operation.
  3. Acronis True Image, the most reliable, easy-to-use and secure personal backup software and the only backup that actively defends your files against ransomware. More than 5.5 million customers.

Not possible in Acronis True Image WD Edition. Alternatively – you can either create a blank VM and restore the image to a VM’s virtual drive (you may need to apply Acronis Universal Restore to inject hypervisor drivers) or convert backup from TIB to VHD (X) by means of full version of Acronis True Image.

1. In the Tools section, click Rescue Media Builder:

2. Choose media creation method:

  • Simple—This is the easiest option, suitable for most users. Acronis True Image will choose the optimal media type for your computer. If you use Windows 7 or a later version, WinRE-based media will be created. Otherwise, Acronis Media Builder will create a Linux-based media.
  • Advanced—This option allows you to choose a media type, therefore you can create the rescue media not only for your computer, but for a computer running a different Windows version.
If you select Simple media creation

1. Select a destination for the media:

  • CD/DVD
  • USB flash drive
  • ISO image file (you can burn the ISO image to CD/DVD separately)
  • WIM image file (available only for WinPE-based media)

2. Click Proceed:

If you select Advanced media creation

First, select the bootable media type: WinPE-based media or Linux-based media.

Using bootable media created with WinPE may provide better compatibility with your computer’s hardware because the preinstallation environment uses Windows drivers.

If you select the option 'WinPE-based media':

1. Select architecture and toolkit:

  • Choose 64-bit (x64), regardless of whether your Windows is 64-bit or 32-bit.

    Note on the option '32-bit (x86)':
    The option '32-bit (x86)' under the 'Architecture' drop-down list is for very rare cases of tablets and other devices, that run 32-bit UEFI firmware - not to be confused with 32-bit Windows!

  • Select a toolkit that you want to be used for the rescue media creation. Windows Recovery Environment is recommended, because it usually has all the drivers required for the successful hardware recognition. In case of significant hardware upgrade scenarios, like a migration from old SATA HDD to a faster m.2 NVMe SSD you may need to add drivers for the new hardware on the next step of the Media Builder.
  • If the Windows Recovery Environment is missing or Acronis Media Builder is unable to detect it, choose the second or third option. If you plan on using NMVe / M.2 / U.2 / RAID / PCIe, the second option (Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10) is preferred, even if the operating system inside the backup is still Windows 7, because here the operating system refers to the choice of the base of the bootable media, the small 'portable' OS that runs inside the bootable media, completely independent from the operating system inside the backup.
  • If you choose Windows AIK or Windows ADK and you do not have the selected kit installed on your computer, then you first need to download it from the Microsoft website, and then install the required components—Deployment Tools and Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE).

2. For better compatibility with your hardware, you can select drivers to be added to the media. Because finding the right drivers can be time consuming, you can skip this step, finish creating a bootable media, try and boot the computer from it and see if the disks / network / NAS are detected successfully in the Recovery's 'Browse' dialog window. If some hardware is not detected, re-create the bootable media, this time not skipping this step and adding the drivers.

The drivers must be extracted in a folder so that individual files .inf, .sys, .cat etc are present. If the drivers are in a single .exe or .msi file, try launching this file, see if it offers an option to extract rather than install drivers.

Download and unzip drivers from the computer manufacturer's website. You need drivers, that are listed under 'Storage', 'Chipset', 'Disks', 'SATA', 'AHCI', 'RAID', 'NVMe', 'PCIe', 'M.2', 'U.2', 'USB', 'Network', 'Ethernet', 'Wi-Fi' sections. If you do not need network support, skip 'Ethernet', 'Network' and 'Wi-Fi'.

Sometimes computer manufacturers do not provide the drivers in extractable format, or the PC's hardware could have been customized afterwards. In such case you need to figure out the model of the controller that is used to access the disk and find the drivers for it in zip/rar/7z format.

One of the most popular drivers that are needed for a successful internal drive recognition, and that are missing in the default clean WinPE media, are Intel RST drivers.

(Video) How to clone your disk with Acronis True Image

Click here to expand information on how to find the right Intel RST drivers

Download and unzip the latest version of Intel RST drivers that support the hardware where the bootable media will be used. If you are unsure about what model of Intel controller is used, launch Windows Start menu, type cmd, right-click the found result and select 'Run as administrator' or 'More'-'Run as administrator', then execute the following command:

Kasauti zindagi kay. wmic path win32_pnpentity where 'caption like '%Chipset%' OR caption like '%AHCI%' OR caption like '%RAID%' OR caption like '%SATA%' get caption

Note that the above command should be run on the computer where the bootable media is intended to be used, not where the media builder is running (if these are different computers).
