Bootable media startup parameters
Hi there, I'm using Acronis True Image 2021. My goal: I would like to create a bootable USB pendrive and to copy the tibx file (that contains my Windows 10 C: partition). So in case the PC fails to boot/read from the internal HDD, I could boot from the external USB pendrive and recover the whole system from the tibx file that is on the same pendrive.

Additional parameters that can be applied prior to booting Linux kernel
Description Acronis true image features.
The following parameters can be used to load Linux kernel in a special mode:
Disables ACPI and may help with a particular hardware configuration.
Disables APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller) and may help with a particular hardware configuration.
Disables loading of USB modules.
Disables USB 2.0 support. USB 1.1 devices still work with this option. This option allows using some USB drives in USB 1.1 mode, if they do not work in USB 2.0 mode.
This parameter is enabled by default and the startup messages are not displayed. Deleting it will result in the startup messages being displayed as the Linux kernel is loaded and the command shell being offered prior to running the Acronis program.
Disables DMA for all IDE disk drives. Prevents kernel from freezing on some hardware.
Disables FireWire (IEEE1394) support.
Disables PCMCIA hardware detection.
Acronis True Image Free Edition
Disables mouse support.
- [module name]=off
Disables the module (e.g. sata_sis=off).
Forces to use PCI BIOS, and not to access the hardware device directly. For instance, this parameter may be used if the machine has a non-standard PCI host bridge.

Disallows use of PCI BIOS; only direct hardware access methods are allowed. For instance, this parameter may be used if you experience crashes upon boot-up, probably caused by the BIOS.
Uses PCI BIOS calls to get the interrupt routing table. These calls are known to be buggy on several machines and they hang the machine when used, but on other computers it is the only way to get the interrupt routing table. Try this option, if the kernel is unable to allocate IRQs or discover secondary PCI buses on your motherboard.
Create Acronis True Image Bootable
Gets the list of the video modes available for your video card and allows selecting a video mode most suitable for the video card and monitor. Try this option, if the automatically selected video mode is unsuitable for your hardware.

The bootable media is a USB flash drive or a CD with Acronis software on it. This way, you can recover from a backup in case your computer does not boot anymore.
