Cannot create bootable recovery USB

Veeam Logoby bobkoure » Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:30 pm

I've used 2 different PCs, each running Veeam Endpoint Backup to "Create Veeam Recovery Media"
Each time I do this, I am unable to use it to boot a target machine.
The USB is good - I most recently used it as a boot drive to install win 2008.
Target PC will start on a Win10 install USB stick if I leave that in a slot at boot but will not start on Veeam USB I just created.

Any ideas? Options I am missing?
I am creating recovery media on Win 10 boxes.

Hi Bob,

For my understanding, you create the Veeam Recovery Media on a USB stick and it did not give any errors? But when you use it to boot your PC nothing happens. Is that correct?

Check BIOS settings. You must have USB in the boot priority list before regular the HDD.
