Use the usbmouse=off parameter to resolve the issue

This article applies to:


When booted from Acronis Rescue Media (full version), a USB mouse cursor moves only vertically.


This is an issue with the module of Acronis Linux kernel 2.4.


  • Boot the computer from Acronis Rescue Media (Full version);
  • Hit F11 key after the "Starting Acronis Loader..." message appears and you get to the selection screen of the program;
  • After you get the "Linux Kernel Settings" prompt, please add "usbmouse=off" parameter (without quotes) to the end of the Linux kernel command line (so it will be "quiet usbmouse=off");
  • Click OK.

With the usbmouse=off parameter Acronis Linux will load a different module to support USB mouse. This should resolve the issue.
