CA ARCserve Bare Metal Recovery is a nice volume-level backup solution
that backs up a running Windows system, has infinite incremental capability,
and a pretty powerfull Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) to the same or disimilar
By default the BMR is available in 2 ways:
BMR type 1) either with the ARCserve D2D CD itself - the trial download
includes the .iso file - this CD boots and presents the BMR dialog directly,
or BMR type 2) booting a standard Windows Installation CD/DVD together with
the ARCserve D2D "boot kit" - that's a USB memory stick with the CA MBR
wizard. This boot kit is created from an installed D2D -> tray icon ->
Advanced -> Create Boot Kit.
You see both types need a CD or DVD drive to boot.
So what can be done on machines that don't have a CD drive, or in situations
where booting from a CD is not desired?
In this HOWTO we learn how to prepare a USB bootable device, so that no CD
boot is required for ARCserve D2D's BMR process. So we add a 3rd type of BMR
booting to D2D's toolbox:
BMR type 3) booting directly from USB, no CD/DVD required at all.
