I have tried to create a bootable usb stick with Seagate Discwizard in order to backup/restore my mini. Whilst the mini boots off the stick, it hangs at a certain moment.
If have tried "acpi=off noapic" but it does not make much of a difference. I get a screen full of (error) messages and then it just hangs.
The version i am using: Seagate┬«┬*DiscWizard┬« version 11.0 (build┬*8.142)
Presume that the Seagate Sw would use similar settings might as Acronis. If anyone managed a bootable disk with that.
For what it is worth for others: I managed to install DiscWizard using BartPE and PEtoUSB. The combination is huge in comparison with what is produced by DiscWizard directly. But at least it seems to be working.
