Hey friends

I have to create an El Torreti Boot Disk to recovery my BIOS by using the Recovery Procedure

Its complicated and i tried to create one according to this tutorial http://support.microsoft.com/kb/167685/en-us http://support.microsoft.com/kb/167685/en-us but it didnt work

i have to create this stuff cuz the recovery procedure doesnt really work on usb devices because of an EFI Shell Bug

Can someone create an El Torreti Boot Disk? I have to include this Files.. http://www.solidfiles.com/d/fcc6487c06/IFlash32.rar http://www.solidfiles.com/d/fcc6487c06/IFlash32.rar

Which board is this for? Newer boards can boot off EFI and access a FAT32-formatted flash drive, and you don't have to create an El Torito boot CD.

Yes it works on USB devices but there is an efi bug for usb i think and the system will get stuck

Take a look :

There should be an EFI device table on the top

Go into the BIOS and choose Exit > Load Default Values (or press F9). Power off, pull the plug from the wall for 20 seconds, then boot up and see if the EFI map shows the correct mapping now.
