I want to boot TrueCrypt Rescue Disk from an important USB drive. I have 64-bit Windows 7, so I can’t use
Grub4Dos (it only works on 32-bit systems) in conjunction with 99% of all the documentation on how to create a USB backup, which itself yourself on
So I tried a device called
FlashBoot, but couldn’t figure it out. I have done some operations using usb,
FlashBoot which does USB boot from ISO DVD. But on the grounds that I got lost and what I was doing was not cheap, I abandoned the
FlashBoot method and simply formatted the USB drive.

Well, is there any reason why the
FlashBoot bootloader exists? It looks very fantastic. I formatted Ucomplete sb-key, formatting only took a few minutes. Moreover, after little seeing it, I formatted it as 5 and went through the described instructions several times and still see this type of screen.
