I couldn't find a solution. Without the iso, I can't do anything (I am not asking you to give your bart cd license).
I know. I understand.

I use truecrypt and so the windows rescue disk can't find my windows installation even if I use it on cd. Don't know what is the problem with the usb boot. May be because the usb is set as the primary partition by multibootiso.exe and hence it searches for windows installation in usb, and can't find it.
1. Do you use Truecrypt in the whole partition, I mean, the system partition is encrypted? Of course, the CD won't find it.
2. The repair only checking the first disk (USB) could be the reason. I know it finds other partitions in the same disk (not sure it finds other disks).

1. Yes, I use truecrypt for whole system partition ie., c: drive. Hence CD won't find it.
2. Hmmm, I have the slightest idea.

I'm on the following error... Trying to troubleshoot...
Some Machiavellian idea is coming to me that IF I found a solution to put BART CD on an USB drive I won't be allowed to publish ;D

One step forward...
Now it's being blocked after the Windows files are loaded. The system just reboots... :'(

I was trying in VirtualBox, but booting the USB was giving the same result.
UNetbootin also fails... It get a continuous loop.

Tech,

Try it on your real machine buddy. What do you see? - I'm serious, give it a try.
