Home AOMEI Products Support


I am having trouble creating the  above, a bootable USB stick that  also contains the large adi file.
Creating the bootable stick is fine with Backupper but a FAT32 stick will not take the large adi file.
Could create a NTFS stick, copy the adi file, then use Partition Assistant to insert a first FAT32 primary partition to boot from into Backupper.
Can anyone point me to a document on AOMEI site or elsewhere that explains a step by step solution pls? I am using Backupper Standard and Partition Assistant Pro, Windows 10 Pro.

    Fastrack1966, you could use Rufus to create an NTFS filesystem for an Aomei ISO, but then it would only be able to boot with Legacy-BIOS PCs, not modern PCs.
    Instead, you could use Ventoy to create a bootable USB drive with multiple Aomei ISOs. Several Aomei Pro ISOs on 1 USB Drive can be useful.

    Many thanks I've got success at last. 
    1) Created Linux stick with Backupper
    2) Booted fine, used Partition Assistant to shrink the FAT32 part, created larger NTFS Primary part.
    3) Copied 36Gb adi file onto stick
    4) Now I have a bootable stick that also holds the adi file.
    5) Used the Linux version stick in Backupper, getting "Trying to connect to LAN please wait............."
    This only takes a few mins but is there a way to create the stick without the LAN component? It went nowhere even with a LAN cable attached, just means waiting a bit. I do have a NAS to keep backups so it would be handy to be networked.

    "1) Created Linux stick with Backupper"
    "5) Used the Linux version stick in Backupper"
    Do you mean you created a stick with Ventoy, or with Backupper > Linux? Those are both Linux BU, but they are very different.
    Please don't make Backupper > Linux stick, that uses BU version 4.x, which is very old.
    You could create a Ventoy USB stick, and put PA, BU ISOs in it, and also large files.
    Are you are using the newest BU 7.3.5, PA 10.3.1? Please reply with a screenshot from PA, of your USB stick, and internal disks.

  • Used AOMEI Backupper Create Bootable Media then the Linux option at the top.
    Are you are using the newest BU 7.3.5  YES
    Now got the stick booting with the Windows choice not Linux, Thanks for your help
