Creating a recovery image

Before creating a recovery image, determine the storage location for the image. Grass Valley recommends that you store the recovery image on the Recovery Flash Drive that you received, and this task provides instructions for that location. If you use a different location, such as a network connected drive or another connected USB drive, alter the steps in this task as appropriate.
  1. Make sure that media access is stopped and that the system on which you are working is not being used.
  2. If you have not already done so, connect keyboard, monitor, and mouse.
  3. Do the following:
    1. Insert the Recovery Flash Drive into a USB port.
    2. Restart the machine, or power on if currently shut down.

      The machine boots from the Recovery Flash Drive, into a version of Windows stored on the drive.

      A MS-DOS command window opens.

    3. Press the F11 key to enter Boot options.
    4. When prompted with a list of options, select the Acronis option and then press Enter.
    The Acronis program loads.
  4. In the Acronis main window, click Backup. The Create Backup Wizard opens.
  5. On the Welcome page, click Next.
  6. On the Partitions Selection page, do the following:
    1. Select the (C:) partition and then click Next.
      Note: Verify capacity to make sure you select the boot media card (CompactFlash or mSATA) and not a media drive. The boot media has a much smaller capacity.

      If a “…choose full backup mode…” message appears, click OK.

  7. On the Backup Archive Location page, do the following:
    1. in the tree view select Removable Disk (D:) and enter the name of the image file you are creating. Create the file name using the machine hostname and the date. Name the file with the .tib extension. For example, if the hostname is MySystem1, in the File name field you enter A:\MySystem1_20180827.tib.
    2. Click Next.
  8. On the Select Backup Mode page, select Create a new full backup archive and then click Next.
  9. On the Backup Options page, do not change any settings. Click Next.
  10. On the Archive Comment page, if desired, enter image comments such as the date, time, and software versions contained in the image you are creating. Click Next.
  11. On the “…ready to proceed…” page, do the following:
    1. Verify that you are creating an image from the C: drive and writing to the D:\ drive, then click Proceed. If a "...insert next volume..." message appears, click OK.
  12. On the Operation Progress page, observe the progress report.
  13. When a message appears indicating a successful backup, click OK.
  14. Click Operations | Exit to exit the Acronis True Image program. The machine restarts automatically.
  15. Remove the recovery media while the machine is shutting down.
