For general information about Acronis Bootable Media see:

Linux-based media supports most hardware configurations available. If particular hardware is not supported, there are two possible causes for it:

  • necessary drivers have not been added to bootable media yet;
  • hardware vendor does not provide open-source drivers. In this case it is recommended to use Windows-based bootable media.

Acronis products allow you to create two types of Windows-based bootable media - WinPE or BartPE:
