Error attempting to boot to IFL USB

Postby Bertk » Thu Oct 17, 2019 12:35 am

Hello,

I haven't used this software in years. :o

I am attempting to create an image of Win10 on a new LG Gram 17 laptop with a 256GB SATA M.2 drive. I have created a boot USB flash drive using all four USB layouts and receive the error below. I have disabled "Secure Boot Options" in the BIOS also. I have also tried the IFL flash drive I created four years ago and it attempts to load over and over. Any Idea how I can get IFL to work?

Regards,
Bert

Bert,

Are you using the latest software? Ver 3.33.
Did you run makedisk.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\TeraByte Drive Image Backup and Restore Suite\IFL?

Yes using 3.33 and it works on my older Toshiba. If I use F10 to boot to the usb drive it tries to load but goes to a black screen on the LG.

You'll need to be more specific of what you're seeing each step.

You can try the 686 version as well.

EDIT: Re-enabling "Secure Boot Option" allowed IFL ver 686 to start!
I think I'm good!!!

What are the best setting to use to backup the entire drive which contains three OEM partitions?


Downloaded ver. 686 and extracted
Run: Makedisk
Select: Traditional - You have control over options (default)
Select: USB SanDisk Cruzer Glide
Layout: Partition - MBR FAT/FAT32 Partition
Geometry: Default - User Device
Reboot LG Gram 17 and Boot to USB with IFL

Then this appears on the screen:
*IFL (GUI) Network Boot Disk - 1124x768 frame buffer mode
IFL (GUI) Network Boot Disk - 800x600 frame buffer mode
IFL (GUI) Network Boot Disk - 640x480 frame buffer mode

Then:
Loading vmlinuz...
Loading initrmfs.gz...
_

Then it goes to a blank screen and have to do a Crtl-Alt-Del to reboot

Usually it's the opposite, you normally need the x64 version when that
happens. Do you know if your system uses a IA32 version of BIOS instead
of the x64 version?

PHONEIX SECURECORE TECHNOLOGY SETUP
BIOS version: W1ZD1210 X64

I also see that half of the disk is Unallocated. Is there an option I should have selected?

Just to summarize, IFL 686 worked perfectly and quickly on my new LG Gram 17 (Model 17Z990) creating an image of the OEM Samsung SATA M.2 250GB SSD to a new Samsung 970 EVO Plus Series 500GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD. The only problem I ran into is the difference in SSD sizes that left half of the new SSD unallocated. There may be an option to correct this in IFL that I am not aware of. To Slide and Resize the unallocated space with the OS partition I used BootIt UEFI. BootIt UEFI was the only TB partition tool that would boot with the LG Gram and worked perfectly. Having BIBM I used the 50% off offer to upgrade to BootIt UEFI.

Mission accomplished and thanks for your support. :D
