R&R 4.5 cannot make bootable USB

2011-11-18, 9:14 AM
Hi, i have upgraded to R&R 4.5, but i have the problem. I have switched to UEFI, so my system SSD drive is GPT now. I have reformated my USB drive for backups to GPT as well. Now i started R&R to make first backup and make my USB disc bootable. When i start first backup, it asks me if to make partition bootable. I confirmed, it started Create Rescue Media process but immediatly displayed dialog "Insufficient partition size to complete the operation. The partition must have 1000 MB of available space to complete this operation". But i have no idea, what partition. USB drive is empty, only one parition created, so what is the problem? If i confirm this error dialog, it continues with making backup, but then USB drive is not bootable. Thanks for advice.
Solved! See the solution

I changed the USB drive from GPT back to MBR and R&R is able to make the disc bootable. If i set it as GPT, then there is an error. Does R&R 4.5 support external USB drive for backup as GPT?

I'm being told that R&R 4.5 cannot boot to GPT partition on USB HDD.  This support is being planned for a later release.
