USB 2/IEEE 1394 Device Does Not Appear in Partition Work

Problem: 

Your USB 2 or IEEE 1394 device is not shown in the BootIt NG Partition Work window.

Cause: 

The Partition Work window loads before some USB 2 or IEEE 1394 devices can report their presence to BootIt NG.

Solution: 

Beginning with BootIt NG version 1.72, functionality is provided that allows you hold down a Shift key while opening the Partition Work window to force a delay before an attempt is made to search for USB 2 or IEEE 1394 devices.

  • Holding down the left Shift key while opening the Partition Work window forces a delay before the search for USB 2 devices is carried out. The delay will continue for as long as you hold down the left Shift key, up to 10 seconds.

  • Holding down the right Shift key while opening the Partition Work window forces a delay before the search for IEEE 1394 devices is carried out. The delay will continue for as long as you hold down the right Shift key, up to 10 seconds.
