I thought I wrote it correctly.

I did not rename the ISO or add spaces to it.

ok. I did what you said. same problem.

so I deleted everything off my computer (Macrium and YUMI), and reformatted my flash drive.
then downloaded Macrium and YUMI again. followed all the steps. everything went well. no problems.

no good.

same exact thing. the YUMI screen on start, has me in a loop. it will not boot from the flash drive. no matter what. I have the flash drive selected for first in the Hard Drive Boot Order.

I can't get my computer to boot from my flash drive.

any thoughts?

Open the contents off the flash drive in Windows Explorer. Maximise the \multiboot\ISOS folder, then post a screen capture image of the contents of this folder, here in your next reply.

thanks Golden. this is fun in a way for me. I have learned so much stuff along the way.

I never did this before (capturing a screen image).

I saved the screenshot as a .gif.

please tell me if this is the wrong screenshot or the wrong format or whatever other info you want.


thank you again for helping me with this. I tried many times yesterday to make this work. all to no avail. I will be patient though. maybe the problem is something simple.

Thats fine, there should be no problem. Why can't you boot from the USB?

I just read this again. Are you using the arrow keys to move the highlighted box onto the Macrium ISO, and then hitting enter on the keyboard?

I don't know. I am hoping that you will be able to help me figure it out.

yes. I have tried probably more than 15 times now.

it brings me back to the YUMI screen. and to the Boot from First Hard Drive selection.
and then its a regular boot. it does not (will not) go to the macrium screen.

no clue what the problem is. what is going on?

@ chas53, you need to keep all your programs, especially 'vulnerable' ones, such as Java and Adobe up to date! Keep Windows updates (critical and important) up to date.
Also, download and update/protect often SpywareBlaster (free), to protect you before, not after reaching a malicious web page!
